Big thank you to Marieme Jamme, Ed Scotcher and everyone at Africa Gathering for inviting me to speak there last week. There were some amazing stories from people making shift happen in Africa. I was particularly mind blown by the work of Teddy Ruge and Project Diaspora. Truly inspirational work. Someone I referred to in my talk as an 'Antibody'. Was also great to meet Bill Liao after so long, another antibody doing some amazing work with Neo.
My talk was on how entrepreneurs should look at completely different models of organisation, wealth distribution and ownership in order to avoid the inevitable inequality that arises from Western models of capitalism. Ironically, it's in America that we're seeing these new models spring up as credible alternatives to command and control organisation.
A very eclectic mix of people with Nick Tadd epitomising the edgy, frontier nature of the atmosphere and ambience at the event.
