The CIO awards Africa program has expanded its reach beyond Nigeria to Ghana, Egypt, South Africa, Senegal, and Kenya, embracing the entire African continent, the organiser has said.
The Awards Africa had its first edition in 2020, with objective to recognise outstanding individuals and organizations that have made remarkable contributions to the business world through the innovative use of technology.
The creative mind behind this innovation, Abiola Laseinde, CEO Edniesal Consulting and Convener CIO Club Africa and CIO Awards Africa, said this year’s expansion into other African countries marks a significant milestone in recognizing and celebrating the incredible tech talent that spans the African continent.
According to her, the CIO Awards Africa is delighted to be associated with technical partners, such as Deloitte, and KPMG, who play a pivotal role in ensuring the integrity of the awards’ processes. The award will be held later this month in Lagos, she said.
The event is known for bringing together a diverse group of industry tech leaders, including Group CTOs, CIOs, CISOs, CDOs, Heads of IT, and CEOs/COOs with technology-focused roles, to share insights and network, basically pioneers behind digital transformations.
