Podcast – Episode 77:
Connecting People to the Digital World

Using technology to bridge the gap between nationsworld

Tech leaders are committed to solving problems that pester man on a daily basis while also focus on improving the livelihoods of people – but what about the ones that have no access to tech? To the internet? To the millions of gigabytes of content on the internet? Enter Andrew McCaughan, CTO at BuffaloGrid.
This techie is hell-bent on bridging the gap between developed and emerging economies, by working on a tech solution that will allow people to connect and gain access to the amazing world of the internet, or as he likes to put it “connecting the next billion”.

As a leader, you’re on the peak, and while peaks can be a lonely place, they don’t necessarily are – there’s tons of people in similar positions like you, both in terms of title and conditions. Reach out, and you’ll find what you need.

TC sat down with Andrew to learn more about his goals, his journey from techie to tech leader, and how he manages his teams and makes sure they feel they’re in the right place, doing the right thing. 

Key takeaways from this podcast: 

  • How being straight with what you can and can’t do breeds trust and support  
  • Why it’s okay to ask for help, even as a leader 
  • Why leaders should sometimes see themselves as facilitators
