How To Grow & Empower Local Design Talent

Continuous Design
UXDX Community Africa 2022

With the competitive global jobs market, many local talents are lost to international organisations. But with a growing design community, how can you harness homegrown talent and retain them for local organizations?

In this talk, Dumebi will discuss different strategies to empower homegrown design talent. Focusing on the importance of bootcamps and mentoring, he will touch on:

  • The strength of the local talent on the technical aspects of design (using tools);
  • The lack of understanding of methodologies and design thinking and how you can improve this in your organization through trainings and mentoring; and
  • The future of young designers in Africa
