In this episode, we are joined by Azarel Chamorro. Azarel is the Smart Mobility Lead at Mirai Share and transport consultant based in Japan with passion for Mobility-as-a-Service, public transport and new mobility technologies.
I have been an avid LinkedIn follower of Azarel's work and commentary on mobility for some time now. When I shared with him that I love how he brings fun and excitement to mobility he quickly responded, "I bring no fun to mobility, mobility brings fun to us!" And this is very much the tone of the conversation.
Over the next hour we're lucky enough to leverage Azarel's International experience in everything from mobility startups to public or established companies to cover everything; from life as a mobility consultant during global lockdowns, how the world class Japanese railway system was largely founded on their research tours to early 20th century Europe and trends to look for in the next 12 - 24 months.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. Please share you feedback with me on your favorite social medial platform.
