Oliver Fortuin heads up BT’s (formerly British Telecoms) operations in Sub-Saharan Africa, where he is tasked with leading the charge for a legacy ICT institution (that is nearly two centuries old) in some of the world’s most promising developing markets. Prior to joining BT, Oliver held executive positions at i1 Solutions, HP and IBM, and earned an MBA from the Open University, UK. In addition to chatting about his upbringing and his journey up the corporate ladder, the conversation touches on everything from macroeconomics to business challenges that keep Oliver and his team on their toes. Be sure to listen in if only to hear Oliver’s answer when asked (rather unfairly) what disruptive trend could potentially render BT redundant in the next decade.
