Safe Space with Francesco Lombardo

Mar 22, 2022

In this episode, John Gibbons, a 4th generation family business member, talks about his passion project MARINAS GUARDIAN.

Francesco and John discuss the importance of having a passion project while also being self-sustaining to be taken seriously. Being reliant on oneself is a critical ingredient for one's self-respect. Many times parents make life easier for the NXTGEN, without realizing they are taking away their childrens' drive. Self-respect is ONE thing money cannot buy.

John shares his passion for the oceans and what he is doing about it, all the while maintaining his self-respect and desire to make a difference.

He is currently studying for his Postgraduate Diploma in Law and is a part of Marinas Guardian, a conservation project to support Marine Protected Areas around the world using autonomous ships.

Stay tuned for the second part of this episode where Francesco and John talk about what is INTEGRITY and the importance in family business.
