Gauteng-based consultancy Thinkroom Consulting has organised a seminar in Windhoek that was held jointly by Bank Windhoek and Microsoft. The seminar was aimed at facilitating innovation and collaboration, primarily by offering networking opportunities and a platform for exchanging ideas. 

The seminar’s theme was consistent with current trends across Africa. The continent is well on its way to becoming a major economic centre in the global economy, and most experts have recommended a combination of collaboration and innovation in order to accelerate progress.

Specifically, the seminar was held for entrepreneurs who are looking to share their ideas and meet possible business partners. The turnout was satisfactory, given that 50 entrepreneurs from Windhoek attended the event, which was organised collaboratively by Microsoft and Bank Windhoek.

The results were also reportedly satisfactory. Attendees related that they had gathered a substantial body of knowledge form the seminar, equipping them with considerable tools to drive growth in their companies. Microsoft’s presence among the organisers was also no coincidence, given the current market for skills.
