To help its Nigerian customers and partners to quickly acquire new knowledge and master new technologies in the rapidly changing IP technology field, Huawei Technologies has established its global IP Club carnival in Nigeria.
At the maiden event which held in the Oriental Hotel, Lagos, Li Wei, Director of Marketing & Solution Sales Department, Huawei Nigeria said: “Technology is changing every day. Today we are experts in a certain field, but tomorrow we may be greener hands in another field. Technology is the cornerstone of our career path. Fast technology development means that our career is full of uncertainties. With this in mind, Huawei constantly thinks about how to help our customers and partners to quickly acquire new knowledge and master new technologies in the rapidly changing IP technology field. Doing so helps to survive despite fast-paced technology development.
“This is why we launched our IP Club globally in 2018. Joining IP Club brings a lot of benefits. We can discuss with like-minded technology fans about the latest technologies, learn from others’ ideas, and share our opinions and insights with people in need. We can learn together, make progress together, and respond to opportunities and challenges brought by the digital transformation era to practitioners like us together.”
