Corrie Pitzer is a specialist in culture and leadership, focusing on safety…or more specifically on risk. He is a leading consultant in this field globally. He established and approach called ‘risk competency’, that essentially holds that humans are the most capable, most dynamic risk control we have, and as such should be seen as the strongest link in safety, not the weakest. The company that he founded, SAFEmap International, is today regarded as a leading consultancy in this field, with several international corporations utilizing its expertise.
Over the last seven years he has conducted several privately funded research initiatives, in order to supplement the understanding gained through culture surveys. Risk-taking is an integral part of human behavior, without which we will not be able to explore, innovate or make progress. It has rewards and penalties for the person engaging in it and requires skills and experience to balance those. Several papers have been delivered at international conferences on the subject.
James is a Australian-based multimedia expert with a passion for simplicity. The design process of creating simple solutions from complex challenges is what truly motivates James. Since completing a film degree in 2005, James forged a career as a videographer; shooting and producing for many leading Australian broadcasters and television programs. It was in more recent years, his passion for simplicity and skills in multimedia production really came together with formation of his company Epistudios and E-Techknowledgy.
Epistudios was formed in 2012 alongside good friend Jake Cole with a simple mindset – ‘making things easier’. Combining James’ talents in multimedia production, with Jake’s firsthand knowledge of the challenges companies face, they started designing solutions that help companies communicate more effectively with their people and the wider public. Epigroup has since developed their own cloud-based software platform, grown to 8 people and consider the likes of Woodside Energy and GE Oil and Gas as their best clients. James attributes his success to the ability to adapt a ‘right-brained’ approach within industries not known for being creative.
