Alan Knott-Craig Junior Shares the Seven Career Lessons He’s Learnt So Far

MobinomicsAlan Knott-Craig Junior, former CEO of Mxit and co-author of Mobinomics: Mxit and Africa’s Mobile Revolution, has shared seven of the career lessons that he has learnt on Ventureburn.

Knott-Craig highlights the importance of communication and recommends taking risks, which he categorises as being financial, emotional and reputational:

When I think of the factors that led to any successes (or failures) in my career thus far, the following come to mind:

1. Communicate

If you can’t effectively transmit the picture in your head into the head of the person you’re communicating with, you’re dead. This is the key to getting people swimming in the same direction, and it applies to customers, staff, partners, suppliers and shareholders.
The more people swimming in your direction, the more likely you are to reach the other side.
