Absa’s WorkInProgress launches Wise-Up Wednesday Sessions


A problem shared is a problem halved. This is why WorkInProgress (WIP), an Absa innovation lab, will be hosting a webinar series titled Wise-Up Wednesday Sessions, featuring the real-life successes and lockdown challenges of South African small and medium enterprises as from the 1st of July 2020.

Charmaine Lambert, Head of WIP said while there have been many casualties of the Covid-19 lockdown, there have also been inspiring stories of hope, persistence and innovation.“It’s been a dark time for many small business owners. Our intention with this webinar series is to provide inspiration and guidance by providing a platform for SMEs to share their stories,” said Lambert.

The webinar series will kick off with Abe Cambridge, CEO of The Sun Exchange, followed by Freya Bell-Dreyer,WIP General Manager, who will talk to Cambridge about running a peer-to-peer, crypto-enabled business and the opportunities that come with solar infrastructure in Africa. The Wise-Up Wednesday Sessions will run weekly on the WorkInProgress Facebook page: @WIPCapeTown.
