Mark Tipping (Creating disruptive sustainable energy platforms for transportation and energy storage. President Tesla Owners Club of Australia)

After two and a half decades I have decided to leave the Corporate career and focus on my passion for disruptive energy solutions in both storage and transportation. We have not even scratched the surface of what can be done when you disrupt the old paradigms.

I have led complex and challenging technology and business projects, and start-ups for more than 25 years. In the late 80’s I was the chief development rider and part of the development and build team, for the DBN500, a carbon-fibre Kevlar composite 500cc Grand Prix Motorcycle which fuelled my passion for disruptive technology.

In the late nineties, I started one of Australia’s first SaaS businesses, working with Ontology Agents (artificial intelligence), and went on to rescuing bleeding edge technology programs and more recently consulting in technology strategy at one of Australia’s leading brands.

I have a strong focus on building relationships, managing stakeholders and bridging disparate requirements to ensure successful outcomes. I understand well how to engage people on the journey and have a track record of negotiating access to previously inaccessible networks and infrastructure.

I believe in a sustainable intelligent future.
