I am proud to announce that I during this weekend have been aired a couple of times on CNN, presenting MYC4, on their ‘Marketplace Africa’ program.
CNN wanted me to give their viewers an introduction of MYC4, which I ‘gave my best swing’ sitting in a studio that was ‘at least’ 100 degrees Celsius (because of all the lights, machines and monitors) in Turner House in the Center of London in front of Mr. Max Foster and with cameras all over. That was something. Here is MYC4 explained with CNN’s own words; ‘It’s a little like a matchmaking service — except he doesn’t help people find love — he helps small businesses find money, by matching them with investors’. 😉
It was an unusual feeling that hit me, yesterday evening, when I sat with my family in front of the telly and suddenly both of my daughters yell; ‘Hey there is daddy!!’ Yes, I like CNN and especially because of the way they angle Africa in their Marketplace program series… It should be no surprise that MYC4 is fully aligned with their take on how new structures are needed in order to get Africa to stand on its own two feet (nothing new here).
I am not sure whether the 5 ‘minuteish’ interview will be uploaded to the Marketplace Africa site, but I will do my utmost to get my hands on a copy to place here (if I am allowed, that is!).
All for now, I am off to Africa early in the morning – we have a large Partner Conference in Nairobi where we meet with all of our Partners from the five countries we are active in… we have done this before and it is truly interesting to experience how exchange of ideas, know-how, network, and commitment amongst Partners ignites a positive spiral. There will be external people/organizations attending the conference as well, people that have MYC4 in their binocular for strategic matters.
I assume, Ole will be posting about the conference that takes place end of the week…
