Born, bred and formally educated in Africa, I have directly engaged with policy development processes globally, building capacity and strategy, and enabling the implementation of strategies as it relates to Internet governance and the digital economy.
From making a case for the role and inclusion of youth globally who are primarily at the forefront of the digital ecosystem, to helping governments shape the policy and regulatory environment as it relates to the role of intermediaries, content creation & sharing, data privacy and cybersecurity, my work requires intense interdisciplinarity.I am a key opinion former and connector in the area of Digital Public Policy in Africa and beyond with extensive cross sectoral networks and know how on the digital economy in Africa – and in reverse how those with interest on the continent can and should position themselves to sustainably grow the Digital economy. An against all odds connector of disparate thoughts. My experience spans both the public and private sectors consulting for a range of international institutions including AfriNIC, the World Bank Institute, IICD, Mindset, UN-GAID, UNECA, SchoolNet Africa and MTech Communications.
I initiated, managed and or led delivery on projects and initiatives for ICT & development, ICTs & Education, the Information Society, Internet Governance, Telecom Value Added Products & Services within Nigeria, South Africa and across over 30 other nations globally.
