The Accidental Environmentalist
Meet Richard Hardiman, the CEO of RanMarine Technology BV, an environmental technology company specifically focused on using drones in ports, harbours, marinas and inland water environments.
RanMarine Technology's fully autonomous drones swim through the water, collecting waste and other non-biodegradables, whilst gathering data about the environment.
We asked Hardiman what motivated him to agree to stand on stage at our next TEDxCapeTownSalon event, to which he responded: “I wanted to share our team’s journey and explain how we intend to change and help heal the Oceans through technology.”
“I am inspired by people who do bigger things and play a "bigger game" in life”, and that feeds into what he hopes to achieve with this experience. “I want to...inspire others to think a little differently and perhaps also take that leap of faith”.
Hardiman, a radio veteran, he not only hosted a show on KFM for many years but also co-founded 2oceansvibe Radio, confesses to feeling a bit nervous and a little stressed about his TEDx talk but adds that he’s “...ultimately looking forward to it”.
