17TH – 19TH NOVEMBER 2020  

The III will be there!

This Expo will deliberate on the need to foster the culture of creativity and innovation in Africa leading to impactful development and addresses the exponential changes needed to improve significantly continental economic standards. It seeks to mobilize a network of innovators, researchers, investors, inventors driving business developers for networking and crosscollaboration. This is an initiative led by the Organization for Creativity, Innovation, and Invention Promotion (OCIIP), Nigeria. We partner with the world’s leading innovation and creativity providers from the academic community, Innovation agencies, government parastatals, and industry to promote the works of creativity, innovation and inventions across Nigerian and the global innovation ecosystems. The key features of this Expo are the keynote presentations, panel discussions, exhibition, and presentation of prizes and awards to outstanding innovation.
Wendy Mahoney is an Executive Consultant to the Institute of Inventors and Innovators and an Innovation Specialist. She is the CEO of Newmella Holdings (Pty) Ltd (based in KZN) which is a global Culture Transformation Consultancy for Inclusive Innovation. She will open the conference on November 18th and her subject in the Health and Wellness sector is Inclusive Mindsets for Inclusive Innovation in Africa.

Essentially says Wendy “an inclusive mindset precedes the realisation (or actualization) of a continent focused on inclusive innovation. An inclusive mindset is able to see beyond its own lens of the world and is able to tap into infinitely more possibilities, it understands that problems do not have boundaries and sees the ecosystems within which they reside. They are able to innovate for profit whilst simultaneously adding value to all stakeholders so that the ecosystem thrives. This is the only sustainable business model for the future.”
