Thomson Reuters Spurs Business Expansion in Africa
In October 2017, Thomson Reuters will host the sixth annual Africa Summit, a forum for the continent’s best thinkers, visionaries, and thought leaders to discuss key challenges and opportunities, including how to address disruption and engage in future-proofing businesses.
“As digital technologies continue to transform the economy, many leaders and businesses are struggling to maximise the potential opportunities that lie within such disruption,” says Sneha Shah, Thomson Reuters’ managing director for Thomson Reuters in Africa. “Many businesses feel that technology disruptors are a direct threat to the future of their business; but disruption is not so much about new inventions, rather a change in the customer experience. It is for this reason that we need to bring together regulations/policy, technology and people.”
Those encouraged to attend are members of the financial services industry, investment community, and public- and private-sector industries looking to expand in Africa.
