Register for the upcoming Business Day Focus 4.0 Conference on April 18.

Technology plays an increasing role in our 21st century lives, and innovation is happening at breakneck speed. But how is all this change impacting how we live, how we play, and how we do business? Is our future being positively shaped, and is technology steering us toward sustainability or creating a world that is more fair?

Are disruptive technologies all they’re cracked up to be? From AI revolutionizing decision-making to blockchain transforming transactions, and 3D printing redefining manufacturing, this discussion unveils the immense potential and challenges of cutting-edge tech in revolutionizing industries. Uncover the dynamic landscape of disruptive technologies and its impact on business logistics, disruption, challenges, and opportunities in shaping our future.

We will also dive into Fostering an enabling environment for Green Energy Financing. Every country has a different Energy Transition pathway; the key priority is to ensure everyone’s access to energy. Amongst other factors, access to financing remains a critical unlock across the continent. In addition, how do you advance South Africa’s priorities in the Just Energy Transition, and what does the financing landscape look like.
