Supply chain tech and VC specialist Brian Laung Aoaeh, CFA returns for his long-awaited sequel to the laugh-filled first episode ( https://www.whitelabelamerican.com/ep-15-what-is-death-the-world-is-a-supply-chain-ft-brian-laung-aoaeh/). So although we did get serious a few times while discussing the pandemic, laughter was never far behind as it is and will always be a part of our stories.
First, we began with confirmation that I was not late to this recording unlike our first recording when all my ancestors, ex-girlfriends, and village people combined to make me late at a record time to my own recording. Such has never repeated itself again, still baffles me to this day.
Brian touched on how he and his co-founder Lisa, became a team with their shared interest in the supply chain. Brian would give us more insight into how they were willing to put the supply chain community that they had built to work and save as many lives as possible earlier in the pandemic to no avail.
We dived into the West African and by extension African space when it comes to embracing the supply chain (none of us can survive without it). How just by doing the basics of upgrading our infrastructure would be more than beneficial to the host countries, it would be great for neighboring ones too as the supply chain is an economic multiplier if you just get the basics right. Brian also shared how his journey into fatherhood has been going, his culinary tastes haven't reduced, nor has his taste in music.
There's a lot more to Brian and I highly recommend that you check out Brian's first appearance on White Label American (Episode "What is Death"). I hope to have him back again as we have so much to talk about.
Make sure to check out Brian's article on Freightwave from 2020 on modernizing Africa's logistics capacity (link below).
