The COVID-19 pandemic showed governments, development agencies and businesses around the world the critical importance of integrated digital infrastructure that connects all key services and sectors, and enables the rapid dissemination of vital information.

Our experience encompasses some of the least and the most developed economies around the globe giving us valuable insight into a journey that is always complex and multi-faceted, regardless of available resources. We specialise in precisely the kind of multi-sector stakeholder engagement, advocacy and mobilisation that inclusive digital transformation requires. We couple this with our experience in policy reforms, standards and compliance, and our understanding of capacity building and right skilling for the “Future of Work” to deliver effective transformation strategies and implementation roadmaps.
