AFDA Durban’s Head of School of Business Innovation & Technology, Arish Sirkisson, has recently launched an insightful weekly talk show on MegaZone Radio – an online radio station based in South Africa. Unwrapping the topic of “Innovation and the Future”, Arish, who is better known by his stage name Lx SETH, is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer and academic.
“The world has changed; we are now in a constant mode of evolution. If we analyse the world a decade ago and look at it now it is a very different place. I’m concerned with what the world will look like in the next decade. We need to stay ahead of that curve”, says Arish.
Owning numerous businesses in a variety of sectors, Arish boasts an inherent entrepreneurial spirit. He advises that: “Disruptive technologies are making some business models obsolete, business needs to understand that they need to keep their business models fresh and up to date. The reason many companies go out of business is because they are too slow to react to technology and innovation. The show aims to perturb the young entrepreneur and guide the business man in a very digital age”.
To listen to Lx Seth in action, tune in via http://www.megazone.fm every Wednesday from 1-2 PM. Lx Seth will host a weekly guest, where more innovators from AFDA are set to feature!
