Caught up with Chris in a coffee shop in Knysna this morning for a fascinating conversation.
Chris heads up Accelerate Cape Town, a "Business Think Tank & Catalyst for Economic Growth in Cape Town". It was formed by the major corporates headquartered in the city to ensure that Cape Town remains a vibrant business hub.
We spent a lot of time discussing how big business could both grow the economy, and grow the economy inclusively, and brainstorming initiatives for this.
Chris also sits on the board of "Cape Town World Design Capital 2014" and we talked about the role that this could play in promoting Cape Town as a centre of excellence for innovation.
