Yawe's Hard Talk Ep 18: Death By Text.
NOMOPHOBIA is a psychological condition where people have a fear of being detached from their mobile phones. In this day and age, most of us depend on our devices for information and connection but have we taken it far. You are in a meeting but you are constantly checking your phone, you are driving and checking your messages once you hear that ding notification. In this episode, Yawe gives his opinion on best phone practices and takes us back to his experiences during the landline days and why we ought to be doing better. Production is done by Aqute Media.

Yawe's Hard Talk Ep 17: A Nation of Roofers.
At times there is a misstep in our planning processes. We have succeeded in the execution of mobile money transfers. But what of the logistics in instances where delivery of goods is required. Are our roads of good quality or do we have enough vehicles? This is a misstep. It is building the house starting with the roof. Production is done by Aqute Media.

Yawe's Hard Talk Ep 16: On Google Stealing My Client.
Most times when systems are working just fine we sometimes do not have regular checkups or look into improving the systems. They say if it is not broken don't fix it. Well, complacency comes with repercussions. The worst part is we realize that we are in trouble a late. In this 16th episode, Yawe goes back to when google destabilized him and how late he came to this realization. Production is done by Aqute Media. Connect with the host: https://twitter.com/coachyawe

Yawe's Hard Talk Ep 15: Going Down Memory Lane.
This episode is slightly different. It starts with a trip back to when I started my career in ICT. With 30 years of experience, I look at how we approach technology now in areas like the banking sector and reflect back to the initial days and see what progress has been made. Most importantly what more can be done? The journey most definitely continues and in years to come, we will look back and assess what more was done to build on the structure that we have presently.

Yawe's Hard Talk Ep 14: Politics Abhors Technology.
Since we are just a few months away from a general election let us look at our political systems and the efforts made toward implementing technological processes in governance. Undoubtedly little has been done and deliberate or not the fact remains that we can do more. So is it a lack of willingness, lack of infrastructure, or both? Well, listen to this 14th episode and find out why Yawe believes there is more that we can do, how we can do it, and why we need to do it. Production is done by Aqute Media.

Yawe's Hard Talk Ep 13: Digital Data HATES Humans.
At times we find ourselves meddling with fully automated systems. Call it itchy fingers or we are just used to doing some things manually hence it is hard to accept that systems can work perfectly without our manual input. Automated comes from the Greek word automatos, meaning “acting of oneself. So the next time you meddle with digital data ask your self are you allowing the system to act by itself as it is supposed to? Produced By Aqute Media.

Yawe's Hard Talk Ep 12: Techie Till I Die
There are a number of reasons for techies to ascend the corporate ladder. It might be time to step in into managerial positions while others take up the positions to help other employees or departments with tasks and projects. This episode covers a situation where the organization does not seem to come up with any other way to reward the techies other than a pay grade through the ascension of an employee to higher ranks. Also, the common concern by individuals of how long is too long to stay in one position in a company is also a factor to consider. Yes, employee promotion comes with an increase in salary, responsibilities, benefits, a better parking spot, you name it. This is good but the questions that this episode seeks to answer is: Can all these upgrades or benefits still be implemented without adulterating the core function of a techie? Also, is it time to restructure some departments as some functions are provisional? Production is done by Aqute Media. Connect with the host: https://twitter.com/coachyawe

Yawe's Hard Talk Ep 6: A False Sense Of Security
The guards at the entrances of almost all our buildings in the major towns heightened their searches after terrorist attacks. So much attention is put on what is coming into the building and forgetting about what might be taken out. It is commendable but the nuts need to be tightened further. The same situation is seen in our organization's effort to protect data. Listen to this episode and get to know where to keep your focus and how a false sense of security is detrimental to your organization. Production - Aqute Media.
