Jan 12 – Apr 13:  Mobile Fantasy Football Africa.

I started a mobile phone based fantasy football business in East Africa. Having successfully run the game for 9 months I took the idea to a major beer brand with a view to selling the advertising space available, they are currently in the process of taking the idea to the rest of sub-Saharan Africa.  I was responsible for all aspects of the business from selling the concept to media houses and mobile operators through to the accounts and forecasting. While I had control of the creative aspect, the actual code writing was done by my business partner.

Aug 11-Jan 2012: New York Bay International

Who specialise in cash delivery and FX in the developing world and conflict regions. I was responsible for starting a new office in South Sudan. This involved negotiating with the Central and commercial banks to obtain the licences and services we needed in order to conduct the business. Once this was completed I was required to find an office, staff, new clients and contractors as well the ensuring we conformed with the local rules and regulations. There is also a sub focus on searching out business opportunities in the regions in which they operate.  I also made brief visits to Libya and Afghanistan in order to further the cash delivery business.
