Why not do a dodo?

The demise of the dodo was a tragic story. It endured terrible existential threats and was unable to respond. You can read all about it here.

The tragedy of the dodo.

This website is our contribution to the fight to ensure humans don’t go the way of the dodo.

Don’t do a Dodo was created by Charles Bradshaw-Smith and Nigel Timperley.

Between us, we have well over forty years’ experience in the energy industry, working at senior levels.

Charles Bradshaw-Smith is currently working as a ‘smart energy’ entrepreneur, using local renewable energy to build resilient communities and social capital. He previously worked as Head of Innovation in E.ON’s engineering division.

Nigel Timperley is an experienced Programme Manager, who has delivered large bespoke IT and engineering systems development programmes & projects since the early 1990s. He has worked in the energy industry since 1997, also for E.ON, and continues to do so, in a consultancy capacity.

We’re both convinced that climate change can be beaten – by changing hearts and minds first. And this is best done by communities of people working together.

We met at E.ON and have remained firm friends for the best part of 20 years.

We’re on LinkedIn here and here and can also be reached by email at thedodo@dontdoadodo.com.
