AFRICA DATA FORUM
ALL THINGS DATA CAPE TOWN CONFERENCE
HOSTED BY THE CITY OF CAPE TOWN

28 – 29 AUG 2017

VENUE:
 Council Chambers, 6th Floor, Podium Block
Cape Town Civic Centre

The Cape Town Africa Data Forum Conference showcased Data use cases and techniques that drive the greatest business value. With an emphasis on real-life implementation of analytics technologies, this practical business forum provided bold vision from leading innovators across the data-driven spectrum. It comprised hundreds of C-suite executives, business strategists, data scientists and analytics professionals to leverage the opportunity to harness your data for competitive advantage.

Our Workshop environment break away sessions (which consist of smaller groups of delegates), allow facilitators to deliver the theory component whilst allowing delegates , to engage in practical exercises. The close interactions with other delegates from differing companies generate conversations and allow the delegates to actively participate in the sharing of powerful information. This type of learning process can be very effective when used over short periods of time. They create an effective learning opportunity for those delegates who learn more effectively from direct interaction.
