“We are excited to host this inaugural event and the opportunities it presents, and are delighted to announce the confluence of key policy makers and ICT thought leaders at the Summit,” said event organizer and Complink Managing Director Simon Nyamuda.

Mr Nyamuda said notable speakers, such as Econet Wireless Zimbabwe Group chief executive, Douglas Mboweni, Group CEO of MorniPac International Whisper Rukanda and Compulink Co-Founder Edward Nyamuda had confirmed their participation at the Summit, which he said will be officially opened by the Minister of ICT, Tatenda Mavetera. 

“Along with the Hon Tatenda Mavetera, who will officially open the Summit, the event will also bring tech entrepreneur Tawanda Chihambakwe, MD of Eskill Trading Brett Hensberg, STEMLady Holdings CEO Sicelo Dube and Deputy Director of Research, Innovation, and Education 5.0 at Arupe Jesuit University Prudence Kadebu, among other speakers,” he said.

Nyamuda said the Summit’s agenda would span diverse topics crucial to navigating the complexities of the digital age and aims to equip delegates with invaluable insights and strategies to succeed in a rapidly evolving digital landscape.

“Topics to be addressed at the Summit will include artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, drone technology in agriculture, empowering women in STEM, change management, digital transformation, cyber security, the Internet of Things, and career guidance for technology students.”

He added that the organizers hoped the summit would serve as a catalyst for individuals and organisations “to redream and rethink the vision for digital transformation in Africa”.

“By providing a dynamic platform for dialogue, collaboration, and learning, we hope to empower participants to embrace change, drive innovation, and chart a course toward a prosperous digital future,” Nyamuda said.
