Frazer Bennett, Chief Innovation Officer at PA Consulting Corp
Emmanuel Ashirifi is the founder of the Business Development Network Africa (BDN-Africa) and also a Business Development and Strategy Consultant. He has led a digital revolution in the insurance industry in some parts of Africa which has brought tremendous growth in the insurance offering and distribution. This solution is currently in 14 African countries enabling insurance companies to sell their products even through non-smart phones and zero use of internet due to the low internet penetration in most African countries.
