Here's some information about our guests:
CEO & Founder, Conker Group
Co-founded Logobrand, an outsourced field sales & marketing agency, in 1990. Stepped back after 20 years by promoting a colleague to the MD role, but 3 years later created Conker - an apps and data business - due to boredom. In parallel to Conker, I helped take Wefarm from concept to over 1 million African farmers using the service; we raised over $15m in grants and VC funding. Now I'm focused on the bunny.money startup - I've been advising them for over 5 years. After bunny.money gets VC funding, I expect it will be Audacity next for VC funding.
CEO & Founder, Syncresis
Christopher G. Fox, PhD, Managing Partner, Syncresis®. Fox has a career-long history helping people translate their ideas into clean, clear communications. He is a visionary communications and marketing executive who is passionate about ideas, while at the same time committed to getting things done.
As Managing Partner of Syncresis, a strategic communications firm focusing exclusively on financial services and fintech, Fox focuses on thought leadership, content marketing, communication strategy, and online marketing program management.

He then delivers on that plan by developing content that captures his clients’ unique value and expertise.
