Africa Digital World - Unblocking The Chain for a better future

On this episode, we had John Lombela - an International Speaker, Entrepreneur,Investor and Business Consultant. John talked to us about Blockchain and digital currencies, and answered the profound question - "What is money and what is a currency?".
This was not a technology debate,
but rather a practical discussion on the business applications
of Blockchain and digital currencies. If you have been trying to figure out what Blockchain is and how it relates to Bitcoin, and everything around these 2 phenomena, this is a "must-see"!
John generously shared practical applications of Blockchain technology in various industries; tips that you can explore further and consider for your business or personal development. Maybe more importantly, John shared HOW and WHY
"Blockchain is the cure for Africa".

Africa Digital World - New World

This is our debut episode. We reflected on some of the major highlights of the digital revolution, albeit humorously, through the lens of Nas' 1999 song - New world.
We spoke about the purpose of the podcast - to provide a platform for discussing the impact and influence of technology on economic development and entrepreneurship, in Africa.
Discussions on "Digital" in Africa are existential; We posed questions like "If Google stopped allowing Africa to use it's services, what recourse would Africa have?".
We also made the argument that "digital is not about gadgets, it's about the mindset", and gave a brief overview of Digital Thinking, covering the following aspects;
Customer Centricity,
Agile, and
Design thinking.

For ANY business to be sustainable in the digital era, it has to practice and apply Digital Thinking.
