Last Thursday we had an amazing speaker, Kevin McGeeney, who gave a presentation in Professor Marina Curran’s Business Responsibility and Sustainability master’s class.
Kevin Mc Geeney is a founder of the SCB Group and is the CEO of this enterprising and interesting company. With group offices in Switzerland, the United States, UK and Singapore, SCB is the world’s largest renewable energy brokerage firm and it has won a number of accolades including ‘Environmental Deal of the Year’ awarded by Environmental Risk Magazine and “Broker of the Year” by Energy Risk.
A well-known commentator on environmental markets issues and one that regularly speaks at international conferences all over the globe, on CNBC television and in print media such as the Wall Street Journal.
Prior to the establishment of SCB Group, Mr McGeeney spent 15 years as an investment banker in London, New York and Tokyo. He holds Bachelor of Commerce and Masters of Economic Science degrees from University College, Dublin.
Discussion about complexity, systemic thinking, government policies and stakeholder relationships made Kevin McGeeney’s discussion fascinating and, perhaps even confusing for our Masters students.
Trying to solve the world’s problems may not be an easy task but it seems that, according to Mr McGeeney, business has a big role to play.
Following his visit to BSL Kevin McGeeney was interviewed by Tony Johnston, WRS, and here is what he had to say.
