EP 310 - Founder and CNO of Kleos Advisory, Tedd George is back as we revisit our incredibly knowledgeable conversation with him for EP 71 which we did very little justice the first time round with too much editing!

So here we are for round 2 - The Director's Cut.

With two decades of expertise, Ted delves into a wide range of topics including Africa's digital transformation, innovation, and the continent's resilient entrepreneurial spirit. We also discuss how sustainability and climate change impact local economies and the significance of contextual insights in implementing strategies.

Tedd advocates the power of learning from failures and how these experiences fuel innovation. He also emphasises the art of storytelling, effective communication, and the need for clear, intentional writing.

A must-listen for anyone interested in digital economies, entrepreneurship, and the craft of storytelling.
