Making a lane change from corporate work to the startup ecosystem is just the tip of the iceburg for today’s guest. After founding a startup, and working for countless others across diverse industries, Adam Oskwarek found himself trying to figure out what was next during COVID. Having spent 4 years researching climate change as a personal hobby, Adam took this time to translate his research into writing. In the process, he became an accidental “creator” of Zopeful, a course that makes climate knowledge bite-sized and accessible to all.
In this episode Adam shares tips on continuous learning, creating habits that support going through transition & uncertainty, and the work of simplifying complex topics like climate change. Adam shares what it looks like to launch a climate email course from creation to promotion.
Adam is a dad of two, lives in London, and loves learning, exploring, fixing broken stuff and uncertainty.
On the work front he’s invested 10 years working in startups and scale-ups across a range of sectors including edtech, fintech, SaaS and e-commerce. He’s worn many hats but mostly in Ops, Growth, Marketing and Product. Prior to that he worked in large corporations until he could stand no more.
He believes that intentional culture and people are main competitive advantages for 21st century companies.
Most recently he’s been digging into all things climate related, following 4 years of trying to reduce his own footprint and connect the dots on how we, as a society, dig our way out of the challenge we’ve created.
Always hopeful, he aims to bring energy, calmness under pressure, care, thoughtfulness and light-heartedness to everything he does. Still a work-in-progress.
