2017 is the year of Drones

2017 is ripe for disruption in massive proportions. One is definitely drones. People who whine about loss of jobs for technology will be in for more bad news. Yes, drones will take away traditional jobs, but if you carefully watch below video, you will understand there is emerging demand for people who can handle drones, make [...]

Fear of other groups

Politicians know this well. Higher echelons of structured religions know this absolutely well. If you instil fear in the minds of a group ( religion, caste, race, nation etc) that others are not good, you gain control over the group. Carefully analyse all wars, riots, spread of wealth, or inequality in this world, you'd find [...]

A leader’s dilemma on team building

We want teams to explore opportunities, yet we celebrate speedy delivery. We advise people to think as a 'group' but treat 'group think' as a cancer in the organisation culture. We want self motivated, initiative taking teams, but at the same time fear uncontrolled outcomes they bring in. We want people to meet, discuss and [...]

Startup Depression or just Depression ?

  'Although the truth is not always pleasant... it offers the recipient of that information the chance to change the outcome' ~Grace Choi Last week at Global Entrepreneurship Community , I learnt 'startup depression' is a common problem among startup founders and team members. We were in a circle, candid and open, our hearts swelled [...]

Can Social Enterprises attract millennials?

Today at the Global Entrepreneurship Community conference, I heard 2 questions from delegates that stood out because of its relevance and intensity. 'Why we have so much focus on tech startups, where are the non tech entrepreneurs ?' 'Can social enterprises survive in a commercially oriented, non compassionate environment?' One thing for sure- to thrive, [...]
