It has been another year of continued learning despite the global situation. We extend our gratitude to various individuals that have shared knowledge with our community through our virtual BIMTalk sessions. Thank you for your contributions to the growth of our community.

With the understanding of the effect of geographic exclusion on accessibility to learning and knowledge acquisition, #BIMTalk is a periodic learning-based virtual program dedicated to exploring various areas of knowledge on BIM and allowing maximum access to different individuals spread across Africa. Leveraging the potentials of digital technologies, industry experts are invited to present to our community and members across Africa to enable continuous knowledge improvement.
