The distribution patterns of the global working-age population are starting to change dramatically. North America and Europe both have aging populations and by 2040, the African continent, with a projected population of 1.1 billion, will have the largest workforce globally.

So how are African countries preparing, and what opportunities are there for employers to tap into this mega talent market?

My guest this week is Hilda Kabushenga, CEO of The African Talent Company. The African Talent Company is a group of pan-African businesses working together to bridge the talent gap in Africa via career development and recruiting solutions. Hilda gives us a unique insight into the current African talent market and its incredible future potential.

In the interview, we discuss:

• How will global workforce demographics change over the next few years?

• Reskilling for the future for jobs where there is demand for talent

• Making interventions around the right skills, democratic access to opportunities, and job creation.

• How does upskilling work at scale?

• Delivering courses on WhatsApp to deal with data availability issues

• Opportunities for global employers to access African talent

• The potential impact of AI

• What will things look like by 2050
