This week, Adrian speaks to Michael Ekow Richardson, a British-Ghanaian, Husband and Father, and also the Co-Founder of Destination Africa, an online and in-person community dedicated to empowering and inspiring the next generation of Africans and more.

With a background as a software engineer and professional basketball, Michael decided once he became a father to apply his passions to inspiring and empowering the next generation of young leaders. These days, Michael uses his IT skills as the technological mind behind all things Destination Africa and on the odd occasion, you’ll find him coaching on the basketball court.
