This week Hashem is joined by Richard Windsor, founder of Radio Free Mobile which focuses on research & analysis across the digital & mobile ecosystem. Richard shares his thoughts on the current technology landscape—the handful of companies that dominate the sector (known as Big Tech or FAANG) and the prevailing mood in the US pushing to regulate them which surfaced during the recent US Senate Hearings. They also deep dive into business models such as Tik Tok, cloud kitchens and Radio Free Mobile's own model, and how Richard intends to monetize his expertise for the benefit of the consumers of his independent research.
Hashem speaks to Ahmad Al Marri, founder of Dubai-based ice cream brand Canvas Gelato.
Hashem and guest host Samantha Wood aka FooDiva catch up with Issam Kazim, CEO of the DTCM, which helped catapult Dubai from the early pandemic days to the other side of lockdown. They also talk about the impact of MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants and The Michelin Guides on the F&B and tourism sectors.
Hashem catches up with Mohamad Orfali, TV celebrity chef extraordinaire, restaurateur and co-founder of the award winning Orfali Bros restaurant in Dubai.
