30. Pamela Watson — The Remotest Book Launch

Stories of COVID™

Pamela Watson lives in London, UK.  She traveled to Australia for a nation-wide book tour just after the UK launch as COVID-19 was ramping up.  One by one, her events were canceled, and the state borders began closing while she and her partner were traveling between events.  They made the quick decision to turn around and barely made it back to Perth in time for shelter in place to go into effect.  Along the way, they saw the attitudes of people change from welcoming to xenophobic.  Pamela describes this adventure as well as the decision to host the remotest book launch in the world in this episode.  Interviewed 22 April 2020.

A Woman Who Speaks for Africa's Future - Pamela Watson

AfricanPod Business Forum

Pamela Watson was born in Perth, Australia where she loved to see the golden sun setting across the Indian ocean to Africa. She followed the trajectory of the sun to Africa, and when she arrived, she did the unthinkable by riding a bicycle all by herself across the continent, traversing a distance of more than 14 thousand kilometers. More than just a bike rider and adventurer, Pamela is also an Author, Entrepreneur and Management consultant in Africa’s toughest business environment – a place called Lagos, a megacity in Nigeria. She knows all about the legendary scams for which Nigeria is famous, but Pamela Watson says Lagos, Nigeria and Africa have a lot more good news stories than the world knows. She describes Africa as having some of the most productive, resilient and creative people on earth. It is a picture she paints most beautifully in her book Gibbous Moon Over Lagos. My thoughtful business conversation with Pamela Watson reveals her mission is to transform views and ideas about modern Africa and encourage business and social enterprise for a continent with a promising future. My name is Phillip Nyakpo, your host on AfricanPod Business Forum - and here is the full interview in which Pamela Watson talks about growing up in Perth, Australia with dreams of Africa in her heart. -----AfricanPod Business Forum is produced by AfricanPod Media in Perth, Australia - the silicon valley of Mining, Energy and Business. Subscribe free to our audio Podcast.
