The Talent Economy Podcast


The Future of Work in Africa

Season 1, Ep. 44

Much of the conversation surrounding the staffing industry and the future of work has been centered on the US and Europe. Today, Paul is speaking with Yasmin Kumi, founder of Africa Foresight Group (AFG), and Rasheeda Seshie, AFG’s partner and chief people officer.

AFG is the leading platform for freelance consulting services on the African continent. Over the past three and a half years, the organization has evolved into a fully female-led business that runs a network of more than 100 consultants, helping midsize and enterprise companies.

Yasmin and Rasheeda, who both held prior roles at McKinsey, speak candidly about

their vision for AFG, how the organization came to be, and why talent networks are uniquely positioned over traditional consulting to address the needs of the African continent. They also speak to how AFG is working to attract and nurture key talent and the opportunities available to those engaging in the talent economy across the continent.
