WEBINAR ALERT! Digital Skills Enhancing Human Capacity - 4 August at 11AM SAST

An important conversation has emerged – centred on the key question of ‘how do we equip people with the knowledge and skills to fully exploit the opportunities offered by tech-centred, digitally driven societies?’. Digital skills training and education are tools central to answering this question.

Join Africa Tech Festival & Connecting Africa, in partnership with AWS, as we explore how digital skills can enhance human capital and help realise the extraordinary potential of intelligent, 4IR-ready African workforces.
