The Triana Group is pleased to note that its partner and FACE co-founder Jerry Sanders, will partake in an “Intelligence Squared” debate on the topic of Smart Mobility at the Royal Institution in London. Jerry will speak on November 4th 2013 in his capacity as Chairman of SkyTran Inc., a NASA Space Act company and the ground-breaking, passive MagLev, personal rapid transportation system.

“We are hugely honored to have Mr Sanders as one of our panelists, we believe SkyTran to be an amazing project,” said Intelligence Squared’ Hannah Kaye. Jerry Sanders: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to address the question of smart transportation in this forum; with traffic congestion and carbon pollution worldwide, we must find a way to get people out of their cars and into green, low-cost, fast and convenient alternative transportation.”

Intelligence Squared was founded in London in 2002 and now operates in New York, Sydney, Hong Kong and Kiev. Its debates are televised on BBC World News and shown to a global audience of 80 million. Past speakers at its events include: President Jimmy Carter, President Giscard d’Estaing, President Pervez Musharraf, President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Salman Rushdie, Jeffrey Sachs and Bernard-Henri Lévy.

Later in the month, on November 7th, Sanders will partake in THiNK 2013 in Goa, India. THiNK is India’s premier forum for bringing together speakers from across the globe in the areas of Science, The Arts, Economics, Politics, Pop Culture, Medicine, Business and Media. THiNK Speakers from past years include Bob Geldof, Frank Gehry, VS Naipaul, Tom Pritzker, Aamir Khan, and Thomas Friedman, along with a host of political ministers, actors and directors from across India.

A successful serial entrepreneur, Jerry Sanders was featured in the Harvard Business School Case Study titled “Jerry Sanders”. He is also the host of the radio talk show “The Devil’s Advocate (Where every caller is wrong)”, and the founder of a privately held incubator, San Francisco Science™, which has a compelling record in creating intellectual property and in taking early stage ideas to “exit”.
