What are the skills we need for the future? Meet Joyce Mbaya-Ikiao, Founder and CEO of Zydii – the digital learning platform contextualized for the African learner.

During our conversation Joyce reveals that she really believes the future of work is multi skilled. Being able to use and engage with technology, harness your personal skills and work productively remotely will be vital if we are manage our time and stay useful for the companies of the future.
Joyce explores with us what she would like to see as a result of COVID-19: “The pandemic has taught us that parents need more support. Employers need to be more understanding about letting people work from home.”
And what the death of George Floyd has meant to her: “For me personally it was a recognition that something so sad and painful can bring humanity together.”
Listen to Joyce’s honest thoughts on how business funding is allocated in Kenya and what we can do to change it.
Joyce’s resounding sentiment – “I’m an optimist! We must rebuild better. Embrace the challenges we are facing and believe in yourself.”
