We are excited to speak to John Gaunt as our first guest on The Disruptive Podcast!
Growing up, his homeland of South Africa was still in the midst of apartheid so he followed what some would describe as, a rather unconventional career path. After being conscripted into two years of military national service, he went on a global hitchhike for 1 year, followed by attending university.
From this early experience, John enjoyed what he describes as an early gap year on his hitch-hike. He gained an appreciation for a disciplined attitude and a profound inner strength to know that whatever happened, he would be OK and finally get a top-class education.
What was to follow was an enviable career trajectory with our guest.
Proving to be a natural leader in his field of expertise, from his formative career days in Accenture, to now sitting on the board at leading Financial Services digital transformation consulting firm, Synechron.
In this episode, we discuss the digitalisation of the working world, the biggest dilemmas facing businesses, staying connected to your support network and much more!
