The Best Interviews – 2013

Radio-Education-rLearning“Those who keep others ignorant fall victims of it. you can’t fly higher than the sky you’ve built.”
– Alsu Ekinadose Odemwingie

“We believe there has simply never been a better time to invest in Africa and in the African people. When we look at the world, many see China or the BRICs as the next big opportunity for growth. At Microsoft, we view the African Continent as a game-changer in the global economy.” Fernando de Sousa

“My joy is that I never give up regardless of the pressures that the business world places on me personally and progress wise. I do know I am in Africa and that means I have to endure certain setbacks but the spirit of the entrepreneur is only ignited when you see hurdles, if it was smooth sailing then I would be more afraid. If you don’t bump on individuals and issues then you are not alive.” Alsu Ekinadose Odemwingie

“Make Everybody Equal in Front of New Technologies.”  Koffi Sénamé AGBODJINOU

” The number of engineers per million of population in South Africa, which hosted the 2010 World Cup, was approximately 473 in comparison to 3,306 per million of population in Japan, which co-hosted the 2002 World Cup. Although the numbers are improving, the number of black engineering graduates in 2005 in South Africa was 24.7%.” Dr. Kimani Toussaint Jr.

Here are the best interviews of opinions leaders, entrepreneurs, and activists I’ve spoken with during the last months.
