We’re taking this month off, but we still have new content for you in the form of an episode of one of our favorite podcasts–STAFFER. STAFFER is a weekly podcast with former staffers sharing their stories of working on the Hill hosted by Jim Papa of Global Strategy Group. This episode features an interview with an accomplished sustainability professional, Mike Boots, Executive Vice President at Breakthrough Energy and Director of the Gates Ventures DC Office. By listening, you’ll learn a lot about Mike’s career journey and lessons learned along the way including from staffing Ted Danson (yes, of Cheers fame) and Bill Gates.
Listeners of our show know our traditional last question of asking for a party fact. Well, Jim has his own. One is called “in the vault.” He asks his interviewees for a time that you made a mistake, how you recovered, and what you learned? The other is if he could build a hall of fame to staffers on the national mall, who would you nominate to the staffer hall of fame and why? Check out the episode to hear Mike’s answers.
You can find STAFFER wherever you get your podcasts and at staffershow.com.
We’ll see you soon with new Sustainability Defined content!
