The leadership challenge, at all levels of society, fascinates him and he has pioneered a new way for business owners to exit their companies without the need for external finance.
As the country entered lockdown he founded a charity and small business support network called Sofie Enterprises. The society of free and independent enterprise aims to founders of organisations through peer-to-peer learning and friendship.
A passionate libertarian and one time democrat he is excited by the opportunities that these current, troubled times present. An Ivory Tower Moralist and eternal optimist, James is convinced that “The world belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Eleanor Hajee is a founder of OneMindCAN (2021). An environmental & social justice campaigner for 15 years with an interdisciplinary academic background (BSc biology, post-grad in the Green Economy inc. sustainability science, biodiversity & ecosystems, International trade law and systems analysis) has given her a holistic understanding of how we transition to a truly just, ethical, ecologically sustainable, self-governing community-based system and local economy. One that aligns with natures principles, where the health & well-being of Earth and humans are put first and will ensure that the decision-making process remains anchored to our local communities.
Our vision is that we recognise the abundance and potential in ‘we the people’, that each individual is valued, and supported to be able to make a contribution to the life-force of the community. OneMindCAN have brought through a simple self-governing proposal for Community Assemblies. The blueprints and accompanying frameworks create a complete subsystem that empowers communities to self-organise, self-lead and anchors the decision-making process at the local, area and National level back to our communities. The 25 sector system is run in circles of 5, 7 or 12 community representatives; tasked with over-seeing Community Steering groups to bring through the community manifestos, strategies and local action plans, to ensure all are contributing their piece to the whole, and that community objectives and needs are being met.
Furthermore, OneMindCAN have brought through comprehensive strategies and an initiative to launch the Community Abundance Network, a sovereign community system (the bridge) to help us unplug from the corporate power-over structures and relocalise our production and services to seed our New Earth economy.
I have been self -employed since my early 20’s, my first business was to build one of the largest private event security companies in the UK.
Prior to moving to the UAE 15 years ago I was acting on behalf of a select number of private equity investors with investments. My main business for the past 15 years has been financial services, specialising in offshore advice, offering mainly fixed income structures.
I devised and built https://inoneplace.com/ in 2016. I do a lot of offline and to a lesser extent, online networking and found many flaws in the competitor’s processes. In One Place was designed to address some of those flaws and is ultimately set up long term as a media company, similar to Google, it is designed to attract users and offer various ways in which brands can market themselves through advertising.
I have been using a combination of In One Place and my financial services experience to slowly build a number of business partnerships within the platform, these are known as The Networks.
I am a registered and licensed football intermediary, so I have been slowly
developing good connections within football and other sports.
A long-term project that we are working on as a joint venture between
the sports intermediary and In One Place is The Football 7s franchise – to get people networking while playing football.
In addition to the sport agency side of the business, I also have strong
connections within the entertainment industry.
Jason’s extensive experience in creative business development and management have put him in the ideal place to recognise the flaws of the society that we live in and to develop new systems that can replace them, working with the Republic of England team.

For the last two years Debbie has been one of the key activists that helped start actions to resist the attack on our rights during the lockdowns for covid. She has been arrested five times for protesting during lockdown and has faced trial for four charges.
Debbie is currently waiting for a date for judicial review and high court appeal on the right to protest during lockdowns and her conviction for filming Gloucester hospital during lockdown.
Debbie recently started the ‘Keep it Cash’ campaign; a street based grass roots initiative touring the UK to energise and kick start communities to take action to save cash.

Harry has, for years, begged for natural and scientific knowledge. From an educational viewpoint he was a clean slate. He had a simple education and never went to college, university, the Royal academy of science, etc etc. From just six years old, he experimented with everything he could lay my hands on. He smashed open his first etcha sketch within hours just to find out how it could draw as if by magic! More recently he desperately wanted to understand and turn knowledge into technologies that can help all life to heal and flourish. There is a great awakening happening now and it covers every field and subject for all life on this earth. He is a simple family man with a beautiful wife and child but feel privileged and humbled to be entrusted with knowledge that has laid foundations for not just helping to heal people but changing our whole environment to a healthy “feel good” place to enjoy. He is grateful that someone somewhere presented some amazing and natural technologies that have proven to be awe inspiringly real. Subjects such as cancer, asthma, the weather, how to restructure water, how to make plants grow naturally at almost twice their current pace and size, reverse vaccine damage, and much more. His prized desire is to see this earth being converted into a paradise full of healthy fulfilled people on a beautiful healthy planet. He has two sayings Make Earth Great Again” M.E.G.A. and “Only Results Count”.
