Themed; Turning Accelerated Disruption into Opportunities, the forum hosted the technology C-Suites from across the East African region to harness the power of disruptive technologies in order to better shape business experience.
Speaking at the forum, Laura CHite, CEO CIO East Africa, appreciated the contribution technology has made in strengthening different businesses across the region and globally.
