The Africa-America Institute is pleased to be associated with Homecoming Revolution, the Brain Gain company for Africa, on their upcoming Speed Meet New York event which matches top African professionals with employers operating on the African continent.
The event will be held on 25 September at the Thomson Reuters Building in Times Square in New York.
Homecoming Revolution’s event brings together pan-African corporations and US-based African professionals to connect and learn more about career opportunities in Africa in an interactive setting with a fast-paced, high energy format.
As corporations in Africa increasingly look to build their talent pipeline, Speed Meet New York offers access to highly-skilled African professionals who are interested in returning to their home country.
Attendees will hear employer presentations, inspirational speakers and a wide-range of stories from Diasporans who have returned home.
Workshops, practical relocation advice, and information on buying property and moving services, will take place throughout the event.
An evening cocktail event will expand networking opportunities for African professionals to connect with opinion leaders, corporate leaders, media and other key contacts.
