Meet Vanessa

Entrepreneur, Marketing & Digital Transformation Specialist, Teacher, & Founder @ Ztallion.

In 2017 I became one of Google's first success stories in Africa on the Google Digital Skills Program before going on to become a Google partner representing Francophone Africa and managing several Google programs in the region.

Since then I have been privileged to train thousands of young African entrepreneurs and business owners across several African countries including Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, Rwanda, Cameroon, Mauritius, Niger, Mali, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Cote d’Ivoire, DRC and a host of others.

In 2021, I joined the African Centre for Career Enhancement & Skills Support (ACCESS) Program, an initiative of the University of Leipzig (Germany) as;

  • a member of the Capacity Building Pillar Team (for Benin),
  • a contributor to the ACCESS research pillar team working on creating an employability handbook for Africa.

Since then I have completed several research work on "Employability within the African context and building capacity building programs for the African market.

These experiences have helped me understand the digital (skills) gap that exists in Africa, especially in Francophone Africa , the needs, and the kind of support we need to provide to them - both in the entrepreneurial and educational sectors.

My work is simple

Create a framework that simplifies the learning process for you, and provide you with the tools, resources and support to do the things you need to do and succeed at it.
