COVID-19, jobs and a jittery economy are among many factors that have stoked conversations about the competencies needed to thrive in a digitally transformed reality. What skills will be needed to create jobs in this economy? How do we ensure that we nurture entrepreneurship in South Africa?

These are some of the questions, our CEO, Dr. Kershen Pillay will be asking an online panel on 9 June 22 from 11:00 – 12:00.
