Challenges faced, future projects, and the way forward

“But then, these challenges build us for the future”, he said.

“The way forward is to continue building COSDEF Group LTD to be a thriving innovative institution in Africa and driving innovative change in the business ecosystem across the continent”, JAVNYUY reaffirmed.

“As people, technologies, businesses, workplaces and lifestyles continue to evolve; professionals will need to evolve along with them. The strong purpose of the fellowship is to take professionals through the process of laying down the groundwork for what is coming and how they can take advantage. The fellowship desires to ensure that professionals are empowered, not replaced, by the disruptive new technologies that are rewriting the marketplace”, JAVNYUY disclosed.
