Is Data the new Gold?

As the 4th Industrial Revolution beckons, wealth and power are no longer defined by access to natural resources, but by access to data and the ability to analyse and use it. This has major implications for individuals, entire nations and the continents at large as companies like Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google increasingly become more dominant in the affairs of the world than some nations. Andrew and Rori are joined by Bosun Tijani, CEO of Co-Creation Hub and author, Uri Bram, to understand how the control of data will impact our lives and geo-politics in general around the world.

How Do We Rethink The African Healthcare System?

It’s the age old story... African President falls sick, African President gets onto a plane to some country in the first world to get medical attention. If those tasked with stewardship of our public health systems are not confident enough in them to put their own lives in the hands of those systems, what about the rest of us? Rori speaks to Professor Yap Boum II, Africa head of Epicenter - the research wing of Doctors Without Borders - to discuss what is required to transform the African health system.

Beyond The Guptas: What South Africa Should Be Focusing On

It appears that beyond capturing the state, the Guptas have successfully managed to capture the collective attention of the whole country. In a time when the Guptas seem to be all we ever talk about, Andrew and Rori speak to Luke Jordan (CEO, Grassroot) who believes that in obsessing about the Guptas as we do, we are removing our eyes off some other very important issues that also deserve as much, if not more attention than the Guptas.

Do Good People Finish Last?

We talk to CEO of Letsema Holdings Derek Thomas. Letsema used to be McKinsey's BEE partner until the Gupta-backed Trillion took their place. Derek talks about the trials and tribulations of being an ethical company and ethical leader, as well as what it's like to be a black-owned professional body not doing work with the SOEs. It's a very frank discussion with a leader who walked away from corruption and chose the righteous path. The question is though, did he finish last?
