Welcome to The Tech Issue.
In this issue we explore both the benefits of, and boundaries needed around technology. The pace and speed with which tech can support businesses to scale, individuals to optimise their time and now with the ability to harness AI, it can create something truly amazing.
For our cover, we partnered with MAXION, the matchmaking concierge scaling both regionally and globally. With Valentine’s
Day around the corner, Christiana Maxion, Founder of MAXION, shares personal insights that kick-started her career in building long-lasting human connections through tech and why the app she is launching is changing the dating game.
We look at AI-backed wearable fashion brands for the tech aficionado in Into The Future, Georgiana Huddart of Hunza G discusses building a one-size-fits-all swimwear brand on the principles of inclusivity and sustainability in One Size Wonder, and Chief of Fashion and Retail at Sela’s Mwaz Store, Aram Kabbani, shares the concept’s journey of opening the first ‘phygital’ store in Riyadh.
Tech-driven wellness is also a focus and we have doubled down on listening to what it takes to be the best in this arena with interviews from Head of Project Management of Lanserhof Group and Director of Lanserhof at The Arts Club, Eva Maria Hasenauer, who discusses delivering a level above the rest in Level Up to TikTok and Meta’s take on unlocking social media’s evolution and innovation potential in Vision and Voice and inspiring women we know who share how they leverage technology to ensure they use their time productively in Optimize.
Harnessing the power of tech is beneficial but keep your boundaries clear.
