Show Promos1Every week brings with it a level of discourse on the show that has a way of overwhelming me.

Take this week for example.

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.

Then Jeff also came along.

What a show! Press play and enjoy.
