Shownotes

Africa’s most powerful resource is its people. In a world of shrinking working-age populations, favorable demographics point to substantial opportunity within Africa. But there is no guarantee that the demographics will translate into greater prosperity. Join us in this session, as we tackle some of the more pressing questions related to Africa and the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Does Africa have the capacity to educate the young while delivering on the growing needs for upskilling and reskilling the workforce? How is technology changing the mix of knowledge and skills that African organizations need? What are the specific sector needs, such as health care, government, and finance? How are new technologies, and increasing experiences in using them, creating new opportunities that make education both more effective and more accessible? 

Panelists:

Rebecca Harrison: CEO and Co-Founder - African Management Institute, Kenya.

Enase Okonedo: Deputy Vice-Chancellor - Pan-Atlantic University, Nigeria.

Nick van Dam: Chief of the IE University Center for Corporate Learning Innovation, IE University, Spain.
