Nnamdi Oranye is one of the most admirable fellows I’ve ever met. Well-natured, rich in manners, generous in spirit, kind eyes, warm smile, warmer laughter and a deep voice.
Nnamdi has a deep, smooth, memorable voice. His speaking is quintessentially eloquent. Very articulate with perfect diction.
As a professional, Nnamdi knows what he wants. He’s done remarkably well compared to most of his peers, not that he has it in him to make comparisons. He is who he is, comfortable in his own skin and running his own race.
Nnamdi is the author of a book titled, “Disrupting Africa: The Rise and Rise of African Innovation.” He is currently based in South Africa and is a regular media contributor on all things technology and innovation within the African context.
Being such a delightful soul, Nnamdi shared with me a little about his job, talked to me about his dreams of becoming a jazz guitarist and he was open enough to admit that he does have flaws as a person.
Here’s more on him:
Name: Nnamdi Oranye
Occupation: Business Development Manager
What exactly does your job entail?
My role as a Business Development Manager pretty much entails meeting prospective clients to identify how we can assist them in operationalizing new technology deployments. In simple terms, that means helping clients make constructive decisions before spending millions of dollars on new technology.
What was your upbringing like?
Nationality is Nigerian but I was born in the United Kingdom, lived and schooled in Nigeria in my pre-teen years, went to university in Botswana, migrated to Australia and worked there for under a decade, and now I live in South Africa.
