Island Influencers

Sep 27, 2023

In this week’s episode, I’m joined by Island Influencer Greg Ellison, the founder of AI Strategy Ninja.

With an illustrious 25-year career in the financial services sector, including the last 15 years at the helm as CEO, Greg is now channeling his expertise towards helping businesses harness the exciting opportunities of AI.

A lifelong advocate of continuous learning, Greg embarked on his educational journey with a Business Studies degree from Swansea University, followed by an MBA from Henley Business School.

He's a distinguished Chartered Director and has enriched his knowledge with courses at Oxford Said Business School. Most notably, he recently completed the 'AI and Business Strategy' program at MIT in America.

Greg's professional life brought him (and his wife and children) to the Isle of Man in 2006 when he assumed the role of Head of Banking at Barclays Wealth, overseeing operations in Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man.

In 2021, he launched the island's inaugural digital bank, Capital International Bank, while achieving an impressive threefold growth in the Group's profits.

I hope you enjoy our conversation as Greg delves into his entrepreneurial aspirations, shares his career's pinnacle moments, his most significant sources of inspiration, and his visionary plans for AI Ninja—ultimately, “embedding AI into the heartbeat of IT systems.”
