BECOME A SPEAKER

CMS Africa is welcoming speakers for the summit. Something you need to understand is that CMS Africa relies on funds to make the event happen. We therefore may have difficulties catering for airfare and accomodation. It is therefore important to understand that we only guarantee (1)event ticket for the speakers and (2) food during the three days.

New Technologies 

Big Data

Today, big data has become capital. Think of some of the world’s biggest tech companies. A large part of the value they offer comes from their data, which they’re constantly analyzing to produce more efficiency and develop new products.

Fintech

Mobile money has transformed the financial landscape in sub-Saharan Africa. According to the 2017 GSMA Mobile Economy Report, forty-three percent of the population in sub-Saharan Africa has access to mobile phones. Financial technology (fintech) services like peer-to-peer mobile payments have made financial services much more accessible

Cloud Computing

With cloud computing, you eliminate those headaches that come with storing your own data, because you’re not managing hardware and software — that becomes the responsibility of an experienced vendor like Salesforce. The shared infrastructure means it works like a utility: You only pay for what you need, upgrades are automatic, and scaling up or down is easy.

Social Media

It’s easy to see that social media marketing is a key element for success in marketing and many marketers realize the potential for business growth using the platform. However, some of these professionals are unsure of which tactics to apply and if they are effective.

Business & Strategies

Marketing & Communication

Your small business is chugging right along and your marketing efforts have done pretty well, but you’re ready to take things to the next level. You wonder, what do marketing professionals do that I could implement in my company?

Startups

Startups are the lifeblood of our economy and innovation across the globe. They create jobs, new products, dreams, and disruption. They are led by entrepreneurs who work hard to bring their ideas to life. Often overshadowed by failure, they persist and can change the world.

Branding & Design

As a business, you may be competing against big brands with devoted customers and unlimited marketing budgets. That’s why you have to find ways to differentiate–with a solid brand building process of your own.

 

Financial Success

A general rule in your financial success in business is that you cannot increase profits directly, only indirectly.  You cannot just say that you are going to increase profits of your business without some specific strategy.
