The Zimbabwe Australia Alumni Association (ZAAA) will hold a workshop on Friday, September 30, 2016 in Harare, the country’s capital.
The event is in collaboration with the Australian Embassy and it is a capacity building workshop for its members.
This will be the first of such workshops to be held by ZAAA and the Australian Embassy.
The theme of the workshop is ‘Industry Insights’ and will focus on building entrepreneurial skills and capacity.
The programme will be facilitated by young, successful Zimbabweans including Chiedza Danha and Ellinah Chipumha (co-founders of Unplugged); Busi Bango (Executive Director, Empretec) and George Munengwa (founder PRO Air Zimbabwe).
The facilitators will share their knowledge and provide tips to the future business leaders of Zimbabwe.
ZAAA was launched in April 2013 and has a membership of approximately 100 active members.
The Association creates opportunities to form people to people connections and expand networks.
As well as strengthening local networks and building interpersonal links, alumni have the option to access professional learning and development opportunities that will allow them to take full advantage of the skills and the relationships they have built during their time in Australia.
It also helps maintain and strengthen people to people links between Australia and Zimbabwe.
