Now in 2017, aged 75, and still super active, Neville’s initiated Innovating Cosmos as a global community of innovators – who innovate collaboratively to change the world:
“… one idea, one person, one problem, one opportunity, one project, one technology, one innovation, one organisation, one institution, one nation at a time.”
You can join! No charge. But as a member you take on the responsibility actually to innovate. Visit innovatingcosmos.com
Neville Christie both has this gene, and mild ADHD – which explains why from his earliest years he has always worn seven or more different ‘hats’. And why who he is, and what he does, continuously morphs.
Neville started his first three micro-businesses aged 12 while still full-time at school. By the age of 14 he was running 4 small businesses after school, and earning 3-4 times the basic wage. To date he has built 44 businesses of his own from scratch – all but three of which have been successful. In addition, over 63 active years, Neville’s been consistently involved in the start-up and growth of businesses initiated by other entrepreneurs – 300+ through one-to-one mentoring and 1,700+ through group mentoring.
And he’s still going strong – three years ago, Neville co-founding a collaborative venture bank – New Enterprise Services – that gets new start-up innovations funded, resourced, and profitably to market.
Today, in his 75th year, and still dynamic and energetic, Neville is building a global community of innovators to “positively change the world – one idea, one person, one opportunity, one technology, one innovation, one organization, one nation at a time.”
He maintains, “I’m just starting to hit my straps.”
What drives him?
Neville gains his zest, drive and energy from his stated life and business Purpose which is: “to directly influence 10,000 individuals to create and grow a collaborative business with soul, and to gain the life and life-style they desire”.
He’s now channelling his zest, drive and life-time of innovating experience into creating the Innovating Cosmos global community – which, hopefully, will multiply his initial 10,000 people and businesses by at least 10.
