"I FUNDAMENTALLY DISAGREE WITH YOU ON EVERY CONCEIVABLE LEVEL"

I know it is deeply crass to quote oneself but when watching back the interview I did with Takatoshi Shibayama recently I must confess to feeling a flush of pride at responding to one of his statements, around 34:24, with the phrase, “I fundamentally disagree with you on every conceivable level”.  Let’s be honest, you don’t get that level of candidness on the average panel discussion do you?


Takatoshi (Taka) is the co-founder & CEO of Blockshine Singapore, an organisation that provides enterprise solutions and advisory to implement blockchain technology for business.  A couple of months ago he invited me to be the inaugural guest on his Future Design podcast, billed as “discourses with visionaries".


I don't know about visionary but our discourse ranged from fake news to mindfulness with a fair chunk dedicated to my personal passion; content and storytelling.  Now, I appreciate not everyone has the time to sit around and watch or listen to me gab for an hour so I went ahead and picked out a few highlights you can jump straight to via the links below.


I really hope you find it both enjoyable and useful, it was wonderful to have the opportunity to go into such depth on something I am so passionate about.
