Season #4

In this episode, Mikal Minors, Bermuda’s leading AI Strategist, shares his journey from a troubled teen to a successful entrepreneur. He leaned into self-discovery at a young age to overcome adversity and he shares deeply personal stories. 

Mikal discusses the role of AI in business and shares how businesses can integrate AI for better efficiencies and customer service. We also touch on the longer term implications and benefits of AI in education. 

Mikal's love for being an entrepreneur stems from the freedom and flexibility it provides - and his intention to build a legacy.
