Inside Silverstone Podcast: Mastermind Session on The Future of Mobility

Silverstone Technology Cluster

12th September 2019

The STC recently teamed up with Chris Broome of Longhurst to showcase the added-value each professional advice firm within the STC can provide to all members, including businesses, their owners and their employees.

In each Mastermind Session, Chris meets with experts from selected fields (including tax, legal, financial planning, debt & finance, intellectual property, insurance, human resources, and recruitment, to name but a few) to discuss a specific challenge faced by businesses with the STC. Together the experts explore ideas and methods that they would potentially recommend to help solve the challenge.

In this latest session, we are joined by Chris Kirby (Tomorrow’s Journey), Luke Rust (Immense Simulations), Mike Hayward (Woodfines Solicitors) and Sally Povolotsky (Straight6Designs).   Together they discuss:  1. Adoption (customer demand) vs supply (how quickly can they build them) vs infrastructure (how quickly can we support the charging). 2. How do we bridge the ‘infrastructure gap’ and balance EV roll out with charge point deployment? 3. How excited should we be about autonomous vehicles? Does the general public want them? 4. When should we expect widespread electric vehicle adoption and what is driving that transition? 5. Is Hydrogen the Hidden Gem? 6. Is no fossil fuel NEW cars by 2040 achievable in the UK? 7. Is building cars really sustainable – is there any way of improving the supply chain or is this just a fad and as carbon damaging as ICE? 8. Are our domestic laws keeping up with these innovative changes and do you anticipate seeing more criminal or civil court-cases?   A big thank you to the team at David Brown Automotive for hosting the session.    **Legal notice** The purpose of the Mastermind Sessions recording is to provide a brief overview of the types of issues a typical business owner faces. It is not intended as formal professional advice. If you require assistance with your particular circumstances, we recommend that professional advice be sought from a qualified expert.
