Every week brings with it a level of discourse on the show that has a way of overwhelming me.
Take this week for example.
Dayo Osikoya is a software engineer and CTO at LinkDirect Systems. He has over a decade of experience in various sectors – from consulting to oil and gas to telecommunications. He joined me to speak about what is feels like, as a foreigner, to be embedded in the Ghanaian technology eco system.
Then came Kingsley Abrokwah, a career tech enterpreneur with the sole aim of using technology to impact lives and create wealth and the brain behind KudigoApp. Kingsley spoke candidly about things young entrepreneurs need to know when they step out to pitch at international contests.
Packed with that, Ernie Ofori who is the Technical Director at the Kofi Annan ICT Center also shared some wisdom on what exponential technology and innovation is all about; including its six D’s.
Regina Honu, CEO of Soronko Academy and Soronko Solutions joined me for a conversation about a pertinent part of tech education and sensitisation: tech and coding for the disabled.
Fatima Tambajang, Lakeshia Marie and Ivy Bakely were on hand to share their top tech trends from the past quarter with us. There was everything from sponsored data, bitcoin and blockchain to chatbots and AI.
When the chief doer join you on the show, you know sparks will fly.
And they did.
My guest, one of the founders of Dreamoval was Derrydean Dadzie. We talked about open Technology, API-driven government-led innovation, how open government initiatives are and incursions on the technology transformation agenda.
Farida and Jeff were on hand to serve us some top tech trends and a good dose of mobile applications for the week.
Another engaging week of technology conversations on #CitiTrends continues the discussion on the National Digital Addressing System, this time with the technology as the main focus.
Alex Brahm, CEO of Hubtel, joined the discussion on the phone.
