      About the Author:

      Most of Phil's career has been as an entrepreneur connected to education and training in the upstream oil and gas business. Having graduated from Nottingham University with a degree in politics he was made an Honorary Life Member of the University Union. In 2003, after some travel and a short period working in conferences and publishing, Phil became half of the partnership that founded Getenergy in Aberdeen. He has since been awarded the Livewire Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in London and was runner up in the UK-wide competition. Under Phil's leadership, Getenergy's brand has achieved widespread recognition in the oil and gas and education sectors and more than 40 countries are regularly involved in its meetings, networks and publications. Phil is often asked to speak at international events and is a well-respected international figure in the oil and gas industry who has visited more than 45 countries in support of Getenergy's activities including Iraq, Libya and Equatorial Guinea. His opinion is increasingly sought by ministers and their governments in matters connected to developing sustainable economic value through training and education funded by oil and gas activities.

      Jim is a consultant, researcher and writer working in the field of education and skills development. He is founder and managing director of London-based education
      consultancy White Loop.
      Jim's work over the last 10 years has focused on understanding the dynamic between education and employment, exploring the challenges of how we prepare young people for the twenty-first century and developing new thinking around how education can have real impact on well-being and quality of life. Jim's work is built around a deep understanding of how people learn allied to an ability to engage, analyse and interpret evidence and opinion and produce outputs that are compelling and accessible.
      In 2010, Jim was invited to join the board of the Business Leadership Review, an online publication run by the Association of MBA's in London, and is a regular contributor. In 2011, he co-founded Stealth Education, a technology incubator that develops learning technologies and serious games.
      In 2011, he was approached by Getenergy to become involved in developing their research and intelligence function. Since then, Jim has assumed the role of Research Director, a position that will see him lead on the authoring of all four of the initial Getenergy Guides volumes.
