The Unicorns Podcast connects you to some of the best and brightest founders, CEOs, executives, business owners, innovators, entrepreneurs and inspiring leaders who make things happen and inspire others.

Host Justin Kelly, former broadcast journalist and PR veteran, chats with leaders from across Australia and internationally on business strategy; what it takes to build a successful company; how to overcome challenges, and advice for those on a similar journey.

In this episode, Justin talks with Kerry Plowright and James Harris from critical weather event and monitoring company Aeeris (ASX:AER).

Aeeris provides protective assets and location-aware early warning services for severe weather, all-natural hazards and identified threats to business operations. Aeeris delivers time-critical information geographically to those that need it, when they need it, over multiple channels.

The business specialises in protecting people, property, infrastructure and business operations across Australian & New Zealand markets, monitoring all hazards and threats nationally 24×7, 365 days per year. It identifies and tracks severe events in real time, warning those to be affected via push notifications, SMS, landline, email and Twitter – accurate to 10m of where people are located.

Aeeris works with its customers to understand their individual needs. This involves gaining an in-depth understanding of how their businesses operate and what the primary risks are posed to them by severe weather, hazards and other threats. This tailored approach helps to save lives and protect property and business operations.
