3 years ago · 28 min listen

Data is vital. So vital that, when there's no data network infrastructure where your business is based, you have to get it built yourself.

He spoke to AICPA & CIMA's Kyle Hannan shortly before presenting at the late 2018 AICPA 'Finance Transformation' conference in Johannesburg.
