Vodacom Business says its digital transformation workshop series will again take place next month, following a successful debut year.
Introduced in 2019, the Fast Forward Series aims to enable South African companies to enter the business sector with the appropriate tools, skills and insights to succeed in the fourth industrial revolution (4IR).
Furthermore, it targets small, medium and large enterprises, public and global organisations, and offers industry trend updates and workshops, as well as innovation sprints, developer series and hackathons.
This year, the series will extend physically into the Western Cape and digitally on Vodacom’s flagship video-streaming platform, Videoplay, according to a statement.
Fatima Hassim, managing executive at Vodacom Business, explains: “This series is designed to promote business growth and strategic decision-making in an ever-changing environment for both C-level executives in large corporates and owners of small businesses.
“Vodacom Business understands that entrepreneurs often need digital solutions and resources for their businesses to thrive in the market today. With ‘unicorn companies’ that change the game and disrupt industries, business strategies need to constantly evolve and as such, there is a definitive need for entrepreneurs to acquire new skills to regain their competitive advantage.”
