Disrupting for change
I am sure you have heard the term disrupt. But what does it mean to disrupt an industry? One of the biggest most defining disruptions for me, was when we visited Silicon Valley in San Francisco in 2011 and people were talking about a new app called Uber and how it was going to “disrupt” the taxi industry.
We like all the tech people in the United States was excited about it, however when we shared the excitement with South African colleagues, they said it will never work in South Africa. Low and behold Uber is now a multi-billion-dollar business and there is probably an Uber on my street right now. As leaders we need to look at ways in which we can disrupt industries and make the world better which is why my latest business venture Authority Digital Law Agency. We aim to make access to legal documents cheaper and faster and with the use of videos are able to give our clients the legal advice and guidance they need.
