The leaders of the tech industry & academia get together under one roof to propel the tech industry of Pakistan at DirAction’s Focus Group!  

Pakistan’s IT industry has proven itself to be the most promising industry in terms of economic contribution post-Covid, however, it is still far from its true potential. For the industry to perform at its best and catalyse its growth, it is necessary that the youth of Pakistan are equipped with the emerging and most demanded tech skills as required by the industry locally and internationally.  

The objective of the Focus Group was to bring together the best minds of the IT industry of our country to bridge the skills gap between the industry and academia.  

Where Nabeel Qadeer (CEO, DirAction) emphasied upon the need of directing more & more youth towards technology & coding skills, Sarfraz Raza and Dr. Agha Ali Raza (the key contributors in the curriculum designing of DirAction Tech) shared in detail the elements that make DirAction Tech's training the first-of-its-kind & unique.  

Honoured to be joined by Omar Salman (Additional Director General, Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB), Adeel Sarwar (Director HR, PITB), Umar Zafar (CEO, Emblem Technologies), Dr. Zartash Uzmi (Associate Prof. CS, LUMS, & Co-founder Confiz), Haris Naseer (Head of Business Development, Infotech Group), Hafiz Idrees Butt (CEO, RLT Square), Bilal Anjum (Global Head of Solutions Team, Teradata), Faisal Bhatti (HR Business Partner, NETSOL Technologies Limited), Dr. Faisal Kamran (Co-founder Addo AI & Associate Prof. CS, Information Technology University), Dr. Mohsen Ali (Ass. Prof. ITU), and Hassan Raza (Founder, Techtitans Pakistan)  

A special shout out to LUMS for being our venue partner.
