It was an absolute honor to be part of the Ideagen Global Acceleration Summit, where I had the privilege of engaging in a captivating interview with George Sifakis, the CEO of Ideagen.
In this transformative conversation, we delved into the depths of what drives me, the purpose behind my work, and the profound impact it can have on individuals and the world at large.
