Technology Strategy and Sustainability Consultant
The YES conference offers a platform that brings together a diverse group of professionals, entrepreneurs, students, and educators who are all passionate about energy issues in Africa. Through engaging panel discussions, interactive workshops, and networking sessions, I will be able to connect with like-minded individuals, learn from their experiences, and establish meaningful relationships that can foster collaboration and innovation in the energy sector. I believe that YES presents a unique opportunity for me to enhance my skills, expand my network, and gain valuable insights from fellow African energy leaders. Furthermore, the YES conference offers valuable opportunities for professional development, including sessions on business readiness, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills. These sessions will provide me with practical knowledge and tools that I can apply in my career, making me a more effective and impactful energy leader. As an early career professional in the energy sector, I am passionate about contributing to the growth and development of Africa's energy industry. I have a proven track record of success, including winning the "City Winner" award during the 2020 Multi-City Challenge Africa, hosted by the United Nations Development Programme and the University of New York in collaboration with African cities, for my waste-to-energy model. This model is currently being implemented in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia.
