It’s always a pleasure to welcome back Daniel Wagner to the show. Daniel has been a guest several times. He is a geopolitical risk expert, CEO of Country Risk Solutions, and has written several books on risk topics – including China Vision, AI Supremacy, and Virtual Terror amongst others.

In this episode, Daniel joins me from Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire where he is on assignment and we check in on the state of the world, primarily from the perspective of geopolitics. We recorded it about a month ago, October 2019. We cover an amazing amount of ground, including:

  • The China-US trade war;
  • Greta Thunberg and climate change;
  • The trend of “party over country” in the US and UK;
  • Donald Trump and foreign policy;
  • Sustainability;
  • China’s Belt and Road Initiative;
  • What’s happening in Hong Kong;
  • Russia and election security;
  • Eliud Kipchoge’s sub-2 hour marathon and the fervour this has created in Kenya;
  • Things you might not be hearing about, particularly with regard to Africa
  • Much more

Our free course module “How to Set Up Any Decision for Success” from our upcoming course How to Make Decisions With Calm and Confidence

Nov 12, 2019

Today we continue exploring data, ethics, technology, and risk. There is a continuation of some of the ideas in Ep. 117, and many alternative viewpoints provided as well.

My guest is StJohn Deakins. StJohn is the Founder and CEO of CitizenMe, a company that enables organisations to solve problems and build closer relationships with the public through ethical user data and research tools. His vision is to create a service for everyone that allows us to unlock the value of our personal data, for our own ends. This will allow us to take control of our digital identities and assert our rights. And, as you’ll hear our data is worth more than we may think.

StJohn is quite a visionary and has been ahead of numerous trends in the tech space for some time. We cover a lot of very interesting ground in this episode:

  • The origins of CitizenMe, and how its vision is to make the internet work as originally planned;
  • The organic data that is all around us as individuals;
  • How StJohn and CitizenMe help people interct with their data;
  • The Cambridge Analytica scandal;
  • Analog versus digital memories;
  • Dark patterns;
  • Problems with our education system;
  • Ethics and governance of data;
  • Adtech;
  • Much more!
