Held in Johannesburg on 30 August, our first NetSquared Gauteng event took place alongside ORT SA.

 

Marcelle (ORT SA) welcomed and introduced Ariellah (CEO of ORT SA).

 

Ariellah spoke about the educational programmes they have available and the importance of education. ORT SA Academies focus on:

 

IT
STEM
Skills & Enterprise Development

 

Arnold Netshambidi (Executive Director, Phambano Technology Development Centre NPC) introduced NetSquared Gauteng: NetSquared is a collective community that has a global presence and is an official programme of TechSoup global. NetSquared was started by TechSoup Global with the aim of bringing nonprofits together by means of monthly networking sessions that provides training in relation to the tech products available on the programme.

 

Our speed networking session was enjoyed by all in attendance. Each delegate was given a colour coded card and had to network with other delegates that had matching cards. Numbers and email addresses were exchanged and fun was had by all.

 

Arnold then spoke about Phambano Technology Development Centre NPC Programmes and TechSoup South Africa and hosted a question and answer session with demonstrations. Nonprofits in attendance were introduced to donated and discounted software solutions available and had the opportunity to learn more about each Tech donor.
