(after the Tony Blair interview)… I would ask every leader to ask the question of your irreducible core, and to stay true to that. 2 Kings 5, the story of Naaman. The great temptation for some of us is that we have to set our minds in the next 48 hours is to go out […]

If you ask me, I see opportunity. I see 900,000,000 customers and entrepreneurs. Can you survive on $1/day? We have those people. The […]
