Ignite Conference 2022

This week, Lighthouse Africa Social Enterprise will be holding its Ignite Conference 2022, where it aims to spark major conversations around speed and strategic executions.

The global pandemic has reshaped the entire landscape of personal life and business, blurring the lines in the process and putting some people under the bus while promoting others who have so far adopted technology.

The focus of IGNITE 2022 is to help attendees craft effective winning strategies around technology and combine them with the necessary speed of execution to ensure survival, growth, and success.

Those who have, in the past, learnt to navigate the new terrain are reaping the benefits of the new normal, while others who have not are losing out daily.

Understanding how technology has impacted the present will help individuals and businesses craft effective strategies and execute them with speed.

The conference is going to be online and onsite. Attendees can register to join onsite in Abuja or stream from anywhere in the world.

Date: January 20, 2022.
