DSAA Talkshop Ghana – A Member’s Point of View

The DSAA creates a platform where companies can truly connect.

The Digital Skills Accelerator Africa (DSAA) membership comes with multiple benefits, including support with the development of training programmes, research and consultancy services – and access to the DSAA company network. A network, where companies exchange knowledge, create synergies, and offer mutual support. This year’s DSAA Talkshop series is an example of how DSAA creates a platform where companies can truly learn from each other.

The DSAA Talkshop last 16th of February placed its focus on Ghana – inviting inspiring speakers of DSAA member companies to share their stories and experiences in setting up DSAA projects in the respective country.

After a short introduction round, AmaliTech had the pleasure to kick off the session with a presentation, held by Matthew Darkwa, Director of Operations. The focus was placed on key challenges and learnings when setting up a training academy and service centre in Ghana – including the importance of location and infrastructure, finding the right talent, and overcoming cultural differences. Subsequently, short breakout sessions offered participants an opportunity to engage in conversations about the key takeaways of the presentation and share their unique experiences.

The second half of the DSAA Talkshop continued with a presentation from eServices Africa held by Kojo Hayford, placing a focus on the creation of diversity in a Ghanaian workspace – a discussion, that was then continued during the second break-out session.

For participants, the blend of active listening and engaging conversations in smaller groups offered great opportunities:

  • to learn from other DSAA companies
  • know that companies face similar challenges and get inspired by their input
  • create new, fruitful connections

For AmaliTech, it was a chance to engage with further companies in Ghana that are creating training and employment opportunities for the youth in sub-Saharan Africa. We are delighted to have been part of this session and look forward to the DSAA Talkshop about Senegal and the Ivory Coast on the 16th of March! Register now and get to know more about the DSAA.
