Management consultant, author and columnist Sunny Bindra is well known for thought leadership in Kenya and in the region. In this rare interview, Bindra discusses the need for businesses to have a greater calling than just to make money for the directors.

“Running a business is a big deal. It is not about enriching a few people. It should do that as by-product…but also do something useful for the world,” Bindra tells Salim Amin.

In this interview, Bindra talks about how the youth in Africa will be the beneficiaries of a reformed Africa as the continent continues to gradually change.

“It’s going to take time. There are no overnight changes…it took the West decades to be where there are,” says Bindra.

Bindra confesses that he is a “pure introvert”, and acknowledges social media is a great medium for introverts like him.

“I have met one or two characters who are very vocal on social media but if you meet them in real life, they are very timid,” admits Bindra.
