Meet Vanessa

Entrepreneur, Marketing & Digital Transformation Specialist, Trainer, & 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, South Africa and a host of others.

In 2020, I started my journey as a Scholarship Student on the  African Centre for Career Enhancement & Skills Support (ACCESS), and in 2022 I was appointed as one of the Program Coordinators in Benin. 

Thanks to the ACCESS program, I have completed several research work on "Employability" within the African context, built capacity building programs that support Lecturers and instructors in HEIs (in Africa) create significant learning experiences for their

students, and designed a framework that tackles the  Employability problems faced by undergraduate students in Africa.

All these experiences, have helped me understand the skills gap (both digital and soft skills) that exists in Africa, especially in Francophone Africa, and the kind of support needed - 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.
