Last month, the African Leadership University presented an opportunity for 2 students to accompany our Founder, Mr. Fred Swaniker, to the DLD Conference in Munich. After submitting a blog post entry, I was one of the students selected to attend Europe’s hottest digital innovation conference. As someone who has always been passionate about digitally transforming Africa, I saw this exceptional opportunity as the first step to meeting and learning from like-minded people.
DLD stands for Digital, Life and Design, and this was evident throughout the entire conference — from the speakers and attendees to the marketing collateral. The connections made and insights gained from the conference have all contributed to my personal and professional growth. These tie in perfectly with my mission to redefine sustainable electricity (energy) production, whilst encouraging tourism and wildlife conservation. To find out more about my experience before, during, and after the conference, please check below.
