Foremost ICT training Institute, New Horizons Nigeria will join other think-tanks in the industry to delve into, and proffer solutions to issues relating to IT Governance and Business Productivity in the digital age.
The event which comes under the 2018 Leadership and Technology Summit is billed to hold on April 19, 2018 in Lagos and has its theme as: ‘Leading for Optimal Performance in the Digital Age’.
The event is geared at helping Nigerian businesses understand the future of learning and integrating innovations in Leadership and Change Management for maximum business productivity. Participants will further x-ray how information technology governance and risk management impacts on their business productivity in the digital age.
In partnership with Logical Operations, a leading global publisher and certification company from Belgium, the summit will look at situational leadership, IT governance, risks and compliance amongst others and expose top decision makers, training directors, human resource directors, CIOs, CTOs to the latest technology innovations driving maximum business productivity.
Managing Director, Logical Operations, James Varnham, said top on the bill is the unveiling of the Center for Leadership and Development to facilitate IT Governance, Risks, Compliance and the five most important technology innovations driving business productivity. Other facilitators include Myles Runham (UK), a global expert in digital learning, integration and development, who will speak on Leadership, Change Management and the future of Learning in a Digital Age.
Runham was a one-time head of interactive learning and digital academy, BBC, and former CEO of Ask.com Europe while Group VP, International Operations and Franchise Development, New Horizons International, Michael Smith (USA), will anchor the session that dwells on: ‘Center for Leadership and Development: A powerful tool for growth for you and your organisation’.
Speaking on the need for such interactive, Managing Director, New Horizons Nigeria, Tim Akano, said: “in this digital age, the quest for quality and revolutionary leadership skill across every strata of the corporate world cannot be overemphasised. Thus the reason why New Horizons is introducing new paradigm in the teaching of leadership courses both for ICT professionals and non -ICT professionals.”
He further noted that it has been discovered that 80 per cent of project failures in organisations, including government agencies, are a result of poor leadership skills, and not just due to lack of technical competence. “Therefore, we would like all business managers and senior government officials to take the New Horizons opportunity and get empowered with the new set of skills required to thrive in the new normal world of uncertainty and constant change”, he said.
New Horizons Computer Learning Centre has grown to become the largest independent IT training company worldwide Since 1982, offering more courses, at more times and in more locations than any other computer and business training organization.
