Africa week 2021
TransformELT were delighted to be invited by the Department for International Trace (DIT) to take part in Africa Week 2021.
This was a 5-day virtual event identifying opportunities for UK companies in selected African markets. Across five key sectors, the event showcased tangible business and partnership opportunities, helping to develop relationships between UK companies and African stakeholders and promote knowledge sharing.
In addition to a wealth of on-demand presentations, there was a series of live presentations and panel discussions throughout the week, both exploring business opportunities available and providing practical advice and support on how to maximise export success in African markets.
Sharing their expertise of working in the region for the Education sector focus day, Alan Mackenzie and Sarah Mount spoke to David James (UK Export Advice) on their experiences of working in Gabon and Cameroon. The resulting podcast is available here:
The day involved a number of live presentations from across the region, culminating in a thought-provoking panel presentation facilitated by Alan Mackenzie. Post COVID – Is Digital the Answer?
We would like to extend our thanks the DIT for organising the event and to all of the presenters and delegates we had the opportunity to meet.
