Welcome to my website!

My name is Frederic John, I am a Private Pilot passionate about innovation and everything that can be driven or piloted. During a cold evening in December 2017, I decided to change my life and pursue my dream to transit into the mobility industry and relocate in London.

I started an MBA at Imperial College London in September 2018 and I wholeheartedly devoted my time to create both a world-class network and international expertise in the future of mobility.

My domain of expertise is focused on moving people efficiently and sustainably within an urban area.

I support the development of smart mobility solutions with 4 commitments:

Consulting: I advise corporates and start-ups to understand how the Mobility Revolution will impact their business;

Writing: I create cutting edge pieces of research to feed the industry with new knowledge;

Sharing: through public speaking and mentoring, I share my vision, knowledge and experience about mobility-related challenges;

Impacting: I conduct initiatives to bring social and sustainable impacts for our Society. That is why I joined the World Economic Forum as a Contributor.

The release of the study I am co-author « Being Driven, a study on human adoption and ownership of autonomous vehicles » has literally propelled me into an international dimension to support mobility players in launching the autonomous industry. I am proudly featured in Forbes and 20+ international newspapers and websites.

The keywords that drive me are innovation, sustainability, entrepreneurship and partnership.

I am always keen on meeting new people and discussing my passions. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

What drives my heart

Passions

Passions

I fly

Proud grandson of a UK RAF fighter pilot during WWII, I have always dreamed about flying. When I was 19, after having the chance to experience a flight test, I started the demanding but exciting training to be a private pilot. Today, I regularly fly and capture as well as share exceptional moments.

I jump

Based on a (stupid?) bet with a friend, I went a few years ago in the South of France to pass a sky diving license. After a week full of emotions, I am proud to be able to jump out of a plane in safety. It is absolutely unnecessary but I love it.

 

I dive

Always looking for new sensations, I undertook a PADI scuba diving license to discover some of the most beautiful Tresors of our planet. My possibilities to run the world ranges now from the air to the seabed.

Objectives

Objectives

My objective is to accelerate and facilitate the development of smart mobility services to improve people’s life. Driven by my values – innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability – I go beyond my consulting responsabilities through 4 actions leading me to eventually making an impact that matters for the industry I am passionate about. This 4-step approach allows me to progress with a coherant, complete and integrated strategy for my career.

Research

A major part of my consulting role is dedicated to pushing one step further the boundaries of what we know about mobility. Through surveys, interviews, readings and speeches, I process daily a significant amount of information to deliver unique contents for our clients. Elevating my expertise, I gain credibility and influence to drive my other commitments.

Share

Making a sustainable impact on the mobility industry also goes through the education of the next generation of professionals. I deliver lectures and workshops to MSc and MBAs about the smart mobility and smart city industries to understand the related key challenges, opportunities and how to translate this ecosystem into concrete outcomes for young graduates.

Speak

Creating innovative knowledge is great but being able to share the main findings with the industry to accelerate the Mobility Revolution is probably one of the most rewarding achievements than I can expect. Being vocal about my vision and experience of the industry is an essential step of my action plan.

Impact

To impact is the most important action and the ultimate objective of my strategy. I translate to the best I can the knowledge and expertise gathered into concrete, tangible and meaningful actions. To support this initiative, I run this blog, joined the WEF, mentor start-ups (pro bono!) and undertake many other activities to support the Mobility Revolution.
