If you can name it then James Duchenne has done it. From aeronautical engineering to a masters degree in law to a role in commercial waste management. He has a resume which is both diverse and interesting. Lately James has been working on a brand new startup called mplifyr- a one-of-kind rewards platform that allows businesses to build their own, customized rewards program. We talked to him about mplifyr and how its all going.
James Chung, the founder of Lash Creative is extremely direct. He doesn’t mince words and when he asks a question, you can see his brain ticking over with pluses and minuses, trying to discern the point. As he himself shrugs ‘I’m a bit of a skeptic’. But this is a good thing in a town where people will tell you what you want to hear rather than what you need to hear. We sat down and talked to him about being successful, keeping clients happy and voice recognition.
