Who we are
At ActiveC we practise what we preach. Our office is a virtual one; we use online collaboration tools ourselves every day to get the job done - finding innovative solutions to our own challenges gives us the edge when it comes to helping you get the results you need.
Founder and CEO
James is a serial entrepreneur and ActiveC is his 5th business. He began his life in business setting up management systems for his father on a Vic-20 while still a teenager. James has been involved with learning technology throughout his career and is a strong proponent of the power of learning within business. He has spent a fruitful career developing e-learning tools and materials as a business owner, CTO and Consultant.
James is equally enthusiastic about motor racing, and had a successful career as a racing driver before technology took pride of place as his main focus.
Elliot’s prime directive is to make things work. He spent his early childhood dismantling household objects to see what makes them tick.
This led him to a career in technology, where he is now an expert in putting things together. With a background in sound engineering, corporate events and IT systems across a number of sectors, Elliot is well placed to understand both the technological and real world challenges involved when developing our solutions.
In his spare time Elliot can be found underneath a plethora of computers and cables, producing music or sound engineering at festivals.
