Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired business podcast Join Up Dots, is a man who is a professor in physical geography. He graduated from Bristol University with a degree in Physics in 1983 and went on to complete a Ph.D at the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, in glaciology and remote sensing.
He then spent eight years in the Department of Space and Climate Physics, University College London before returning to Bristol in 1996.
So we can say that he is more than a bit clever to say the least.
But if you think that todays show is simply about a supremely educated man who is living a life without struggle then think again, as a few years back he was in a position that is nothing short of horrific.
After a mountaineering accident, our guest found himself laying for days on a tiny shelf high above the safety of the ground, with his leg literally hanging on by a thread
For days he lay and watched it loosely flap around, afraid it might just drop off. Powerless to stop gangrene set in, and all the while his leg moving closer and closer to being lost forever.
And if that is where you might think his story finishes then think again, as with so many tales on Join Up Dots, the worst moments in someone's life can actually be the starting point to career success. Allowing something remarkable to be born, and that is certainly the case today.
So lets bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only entrepreneur and scientist Mr Jonathan Bamber.
