African Youth and Talent Summit heads into its 3rd year after a successful 2017 & 2018 edition that saw over 1,000 attendees majorly from African countries including, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Somalia, Togo, and Zimbabwe, and had a global online reach of 2 million.
The annual summit is arguably Africa’s largest Youth and Talent Development Platform. The summit returned to Nigeria on 24th August, 2019. The AYTS program focuses on youth, personal development, ideas, trends, insights, business agriculture, and best practices to transform communities across Africa.
The summit was organized in a bid to educate youths with skills for continental development across sectors of the African economy, to unite Africa’s youths towards building a strong relationship for continental growth through ideas shared from the summit, to present a positive development framework to the AU countries, ministries of youths, the government and public universities within the continent and to learn from renowned and qualified experts on various career developments for the betterment of our continent.
The theme for the AYTS 2019 was “The Role of Youth in Building Africa’s Economy”. The summit was held on Saturday August 24, 2019 at D’Podium International Event Centre, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria. It featured A-list facilitators, industry instructors and panelists from across Africa. The Keynote speakers included Prince Siita Sofo (CEO, The Investor Consult, NTV, Ghana); Tumi Phake (Founder/CEO, Zenzele Fitness Group, SouthAfrica); Clara Chinwe Okoro (COO, Brandworld Africa/Founder, My Beautiful Africa). There were also sessions of discussions on Personal & Leadership Development, BusinessDevelopment and Business Communication.
The vision of African Youth and Talent Summit network is to educate Africa’s youths with personal, business, leadership and talent skills and to provide them with opportunities for development of the African continent, and this, the panel discussions attacked critically, achieving best results. It can be said that the participants expressed happy moods as the summit was a gateway to becoming skilled African youths, networking with youths from around Africa and participating in continental discussions for youth development.
Meanwhile, it was a moment of enlightenment and hopeful excitement as DSIgate educated African Youths on the need to learn a skill, integrate human knowledge and acquire adequate vocational training in skills, raw materials, machinery and equipment. It is only with skilled men that materials can be harnessed, manipulated and transformed into products.
With quality skills acquisition programs, countries like America, Britain, Germany and Japan have rehabilitated drug addicts, school dropouts and several destitute who eventually contributed meaningfully to the economy and the development of high volume of productivity in their countries.
Education, they say, is expensive, but knowledge is free. It is for that purpose DSIgate has learnt to make knowledge available to millions through educational method and thus filling the vacuum of scarcity of knowledge and skills. And it is of no doubt that this is a major solution in reaching that goal of Building Africa’s Economy, which is the objective of the African Youth and Talent Summit 2019.
Heavy thumbs-up to the conveners, Matthew Onwuka and James Jibunna for their great works and responsibilities on positively contributing immensely to our continent, as the summit recorded a massive number of participants in attendance, which shows that despite the odds, thousands of African Youths are passionate about building a better Africa.
