“At the Ministry of Economic Development of Curaçao, we had already become aware of how effective virtual events could be for island nations which attracted us to become sponsors of the first Virtual Island Summit in 2019, and during the summit some of our team members also gave presentations. When James announced that he would be running a course on how to create a successful virtual event in two months, we immediately saw the value of signing up, as we had been very impressed with the work that James and the Island Innovation team had done in setting up and running the Virtual Island Summit. Our team learned some valuable skills, knowledge and insider tips from James during the course that have allowed us to deliver our own successful events. We then decided to sponsor the Virtual Island Summit 2020 and are looking forward to the next one. If you are looking for coaching on how to successfully create a virtual event then you should definitely contact James and his team!”

“Island innovation is without doubt an excellent resource for sustainable development and networking best practices for doers.

Learning and growing as we collaborate and network towards sustainable development by sharing knowledge and resources from islands around the world.”
“Your course supported the transition of our annual event, the Asia Clean Energy Forum to a fully virtual event, attended by 3,500 people. (Our previous record attendance was 1,700 for our physical event in 2019)”
“The Virtual Island Summit is a fantastic opportunity to exchange information between islands facing similar challenges and opportunities, and I am looking forward to sharing my own experience and learning from all attending.”
“The Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF) has worked to promote a shift to a low carbon future in the Pacific islands, so we decided to collaborate with James Ellsmoor and the team at Solar Head of State (SHOS), to coordinate the installation of solar panels on the residences of eleven PDIF member countries and the PIDF Headquarters. We have been very impressed with the work carried out by James Ellsmoor and Solar Head of State on this project. James’ knowledge, experience and dedication to promoting the use of renewable energy on islands across the world is second to none, and we would recommend hiring if you are looking for professional environmental consultancy services.
“The Island Innovation Ambassadors Program 2021 is a eye-opening and innovation driven platform that empowers me as a serving Senior Public Servant of the Government of Papua New Guinea and also in my other role as Human Rights Defender, Male Advocate for Women’s Rights as Human Rights in my Island Communities especially in Suau Island located in the Suau Rural Local Level Government Area of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea. This program helped me to understand and think beyond my job description and beyond my learning in closed-nature Institutions such as the Government of Papua New Guinea especially – the Department of National Planning and Monitoring; and, as well as in Open-nature institutions such as Universities, College’s and online courses taken online.”
“In these two years that I have been an Island Ambassador, I have met amazing people.My professional contact networks have grown. And it’s a great teamwork experience. I´m so glad and excited to be part of Island Innovation thank you very much.”
“The island ambassador program is a beacon of hope that every islander struggling with the reality of climate change needs. As part of this network you realize you are not alone and that many people are working hard on sustainable solutions that are fit for islands.”
“Being an island ambassador allowed me to meet Islanders from around the world and learn about places and cultures that I never would have interacted with otherwise. There is so much we can learn by just listening and interacting with the many beautiful islands around the world tackling the same challenges as we are. Through this program and bringing together such diversity surely we can find creative solutions to become more sustainable and save the planet.”
“We (the people of Bocas del Toro, Panama) now have the necessary tools and connections that will help us confront the global warming and climate change that has been affecting our island… thank you James; your work is changing life’s in a way you don’t imagine…”
