I write and speak on customer experience (CX), technology innovation and evolutionary architectures and I am currently focused on digital transformation initiatives at MTN, an organization connecting people and communities across the Middle East and Africa through voice and data services and changing lives for the better in a bold new digital world. I am focused on the following areas;
Defining Architecture.I have been formulating IT strategies and designing solutions for a while. Architecting is a passion. "Defining" in this case means leading and executing the IT strategy, architecture, and delivery governance for value streams relating to digital innovation.
Writing & Speaking Engagements.Apart from publishing articles on journals such as the Cutter Business Technology Journal, I have spoken at a few conferences, most notably at The Open Group Conference, San Diego 2018 and SATURN 2016 (SEI).
Mentoring.Organizational psychology and design are fields that interest me as well. I mentor idealists and dreamers, showing them the HOW for the ideas that they create. Most recently, I was a growth mentor at the first Google LaunchPad Start hyper-accelerator program in Lagos. Launchpad Start is a free 5-day hyper-acceleration program for early-stage startups, with a focus on product, design, marketing, business & growth - helping startups validate their ideas and mitigate risk to build lasting sustainable companies. The program provides one-to-one mentoring from fully vetted professionals from a diverse set of backgrounds and companies, who are volunteering their time to turn ideas into viable businesses.
