Here’s a tricky question for Patrick Grove: how long can he survive without access to the Internet? “I guess the litmus test is how quickly you turn your phone on after a flight once your plane lands,” says the Co-Founder and Group CEO of Catcha Group, raising an eyebrow at the prospect of not being tethered to a Wi-Fi or data connection. “Someone like me – I’m already turning it on as the plane’s descending or when we hit the runway! Before people stand up and grab their luggage, I’ll have caught up with everything and cleared all my messages.”
Patrick Grove: persistent, resilient and entirely accustomed to moving at light speed.
