Global technology training company elev8 has recently launched its new academy in Lagos with a series of online events focused on digital transformation in Nigeria.

The Knowledge Based Economy – A Pathway to Nigeria’s Digitally Enabled Future provided an opportunity for business leaders to participate in Nigeria’s digital dialogue with industry experts, technology trailblazers and government leaders.

C-suite executives and digital leaders across Nigeria were invited to join elev8 for a special series of events exploring the impact of new technologies and digitalization, as well as the potential risks to economic growth, such as Covid-19.

Digital enablement is increasingly becoming a hot topic for global businesses. In the next few years, the digital economy is projected to be responsible for a quarter of global GDP. Across the world, it is widely reported that businesses are accelerating digital adoption to establish a competitive edge, drive growth and ensure efficiency.
 

A pathway to Nigeria’s digitally enabled future


The event commenced with the release of a cutting-edge research report. Produced in conjunction with BusinessDay Research and Intelligence Unit, the report examines the impact of digital transformation on Nigeria’s economic growth over the next three years. It finds that for Nigeria to compete on the world stage, investment in new technologies and skills is essential in supporting a transition to a knowledge-based economy. elev8’s launch within the country aims to support this transition, providing valuable technology and digital skills training in its new Lagos academy. 

Participants at the online events were able to experience some of elev8’s expert training in an exclusive masterclass session. Digitize or Die, looked at the digital strategies and tactics deployed by leading market players, hosted by award-winning technology and digital innovator, Sabine VanderLinden.
