Please post questions in the chat or to me directly for the Q&A session that will follow subsequently.
what are seasons like in Kenya?
is the younger age why tech has been so much more implemented there ? or more government ?
are more young people being drawn to the country or is it that Kenyans are staying (less brain drain)
What did you enjoy most about working in Nairobi, what was most challenging?
whats your favorite Kenyan/Swahili food?
Many people associate Kenya with safari and tourism, as you indicated. Approximately what % of the Kenyan economy is tied to tourism?
I actually had the pleasure of visiting Nairobi last year and was amazed at how environmentally conscious they are especially having visited other African countries. Can you speak more about the sustainability work being done in the country?
Are Kenyans excited about the pervasiveness of mobile tech and payments, or is there any backlash against "big tech"?
Could you speak more about your work in Zambia? (asked by somebody who works there)
What do you see as Cellulant's defining attribute giving you a competitive advantage vis-à-vis Citibank, Telco, etc.?
Please remember to drop your questions in the chat
With such widespread saturation with connectivity and mobile usage in Kenya, what do you see as the next phase for mobile payments/Cellulant?
As CEO, where do you derive your inspiration and leadership qualities? Are there particular books and/or historical figures that influence you?
curious how conflict in neighboring countries affects any of business/growth plans
