Riding the next disruption in banking!

 

The history of banking began with the first prototype banks which were the merchants of the world, who gave grain loans to farmers and traders who carried goods between cities. This was around 2000 BC in Assyria, India, and Sumeria. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

 

The world financial system and economy cannot function without Banks. At its most basic banks were principally allocate funds from savers to borrowers in an efficient manner. 

 

With Covid-19 and the near-collapse of the world economy, the Central and Commercial Banks are doing their best to relaunch the markets.

You must define and communicate your unique value proposition.

A New Education Order!

Uncategorized Sep 27, 2019

Medieval Education was often built around myth, magic and superstition. Mass education was originally institutionalise to provide resources for the then industrial revolution in creation.

The modern education system, successful till now, has been built over the last 300 years based on the needs of an era long gone. It has led to the quantifying and compartmentalizing of intelligence.

The current education system is caught in an old worldview that is getting out of sync with what humanity needs for this 4th industrial revolution.

If we believe that the education system is no longer meeting the need of the new world order, then it is right that we make an effort to put it right!

 HOW?

We all need to break the academic illusion that we are living with and start focusing to get each and every one the encouragement necessary to achieve their real ability, to bring their individual genius into recognition.

The challenge we face is no longer at the individual level, it is now about...

PWFO: Unlearning is the new learning!!!.

Uncategorized Sep 18, 2019

Mass education will continue to do well for most for many years to come. It is what is taught and how to teach that is creating a gap about finding a satisfying way of being financially independent and staying that way in a rapidly changing world.

More experts are now repeating that learning new skills involve unlearning old skills and habits that most of us have been "constructed" to be.

 The acceleration of digital transformation means that the goal posts continue to be moved, and the problem is that we do not even know what the medium to long term future holds for any of us.

 So what to encourage our children and ourselves to learn and unlearn to be ready: here are five habits that William Treseder has shared with us. With his permission, let me share these with you. See if you agree :

1.    Filling up the day with time-bound activities.

Just class in school was 45 minutes, or 60 minutes, we build most meetings for the same duration.

PWFO - teaching is about the teacher, and coaching is about the student.

Uncategorized Sep 17, 2019

The central education system most of us follow is based on the one the department of education of the country you live in has put in place. While modern mass education has served its purpose and continues to take millions out of poverty, it was thought of and built to meet challenges of a time gone by.

Over time a "STEM" based curriculum has become the preferred choice of most nations. STEM is basically to encourage students to focus on these following four specific disciplines science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Over the last 50 years, the percentage of students taking liberal arts degrees have reduced to a trickle. This is because our children and we were discouraged from pursuing their passions due to less perceived prestige and lower paying job opportunities.

Just like climate change, we just need to see what is happening around the world to know it is happening. Just like no charts or statistics are required to prove climate change, we can see that our society is...
