ABOUT ME. ALI BULLOCK.
SPEAKER AT DAVOS
It’s been a pretty wild ride over 40 years. I am the co-owner of The Solar Branco Eco Estate on São Miguel, building a leading Eco Hotel here in the Azores. I am also the creator of Baleia Gin, and The Gin Library, the world’s largest private collection of gin. My charitable activities include the patron of The Ocean Azores Foundation, helping to safeguard and promote the Azores as one of the world’s most important whale sanctuaries in the world. Previously, I worked for companies including Nissan, Red Bull Formula 1, Cathay Pacific, WWF, WSJ, Motorola, Samsung, KPMG Consulting and Kelloggs.
(And yes that is a private jet I used to move my 5 rescue dogs to the Azores.)
OCEAN AZORES FOUNDATION
The Ocean Azores Foundation was created in the Azores for the ocean that surrounds us. We aim to invest our resources in selected community projects that will help drive lasting social and environmental change, focusing on the protection of the waters that surround the Azores Islands. This will be achieved through multi-year partnerships and providing funding for organisations that promote marine sustainability and sustainable tourism.
This work will help to increase protections for cetaceans in the region, and ensure their long term survival. The foundation will focus on funding projects that include marine conservation, reduction of plastics, and related ocean education and research.

ME VS GREY ADVERTISING
Days after Grey Singapore had been accused of running a scam in the name of philanthropy, the company has decided to return their Cannes Lion award.
Grey for Good, the philanthropic division of Grey International had developed an app, ‘I SEA,’ intended to aid refugees trying to escape their war-ravaged homeland by sea. One would think this win would be celebrated and the app made good use of, but sadly that was not the case. Of the many people pointing out inconsistencies in what the app claims to do and others accusing Grey Singapore of capitalizing on this tragedy to gain fame – things seem to have gone sideways in colossal ways.
