Impact Borderless Digital invites you to the Inaugural Zoom Forum on 29th May 2020 from 1100H EAT.
“COVID-19 has been a disruptive, distractive, destructive, and distancing disease. Riding the wave of the Digital Transformation, we can together disrupt business as usual to turn the crisis into a new normal of progressive and borderless work culture,” – Nashon Adero, Founder, IBD.
Come May 29, 2020, Impact Borderless Digital (IBD) will hold a Zoom workshop facilitated by the Founder, Nashon Adero. It will be co-facilitated by Sote Hub Manager, Harry Mwailengo. This virtual event follows the pre-COVID-19 face-to-face Youth Talent and Career Fairs IBD held across six Kenyan counties, the latest being the overwhelmingly attended seminar at the Desert Rose Hotel, Voi-Kenya, held on February 22, 2020. The inaugral IBD nationwide TV broadcast series, Talanta Talks, was also aired live on January 30, 2020.
TOPIC: TALENTS, SKILLS DEVELOPMENT AND RESILIENCE DURING AND AFTER COVID-19
The IBD speakers will share on Borderless Learning Resources, the Digital Economy, Digital Fluency, and Global Citizenship. Join an interactive session with a progressive international audience of students, young professionals and scholars drawn from Africa, Europe, Americas, Asia and the Pacific, among others.
