Mobile First or AI First?

For several months, I and the team at LEAD Resources have been recommending that entrepreneurs think mobile first, when building products and services; we have mentioned this at masterclasses and on the #SMEClinic radio program. With the advent of the fourth industrial revolution and the seemingly prevalence of artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies of this generation, I think it is imperative for the maxim […]

Beyond Oil: Transportation in Africa by 2030

Technology holds enormous potentials in every sector of the economy. Transportation 2.0 is another catchment area we must tilt our education and governance to affect. India recently unveiled plans to use only electric vehicles by 2030, without depending on any petrol or diesel vehicle. Countries in Africa – Nigeria especially – must start to plan towards a post-oil economy. By 2030, electric and solar vehicles, […]

One of the skills important for preparing for the future is empathy. We need to build empathy into our values as leaders.

Our world becomes better – the relationship between humans […]

How Virtual Reality Can Help You

How Virtual Reality Can Help You

My first encounter with Virtual Reality – without the real immersion – was earlier in 2015.

On Perseverance and Little Big Things

Keep doing what you do, as long as it makes positive sense! Over the last few weeks, I have been having conversations about  perseverance, failure and excellence. I heard humbling experiences of friends and colleagues as we all shared moments where we learned from failure and not-too-good moments. When some of these people talk about the successes of what they do, it seems they had […]
