As the world comes to a standstill and individuals and businesses adapt to the new normal, enforced quarantines and self-isolation has forced even the most traditional industries to engage with digital technology. 

In fact, it has encouraged a bout of fresh thinking, and a wave of motivation where people now have the undivided time to explore suppressed passions, skills developments and side projects that were previously tossed to the wayside in the business of everyday life. 

It’s important to use this unprecedented time in a way that will leave us better off going out than we were coming in. Continual self-enrichment and education will enable us to shape the next chapter of our lives – post covid-19 – on our own terms and pursue ventures we were never able to before. 


The beauty of technology is that the avenues for remote learning and online education are immense. To this end, Fast Company SA, in partnership with the Red & Yellow Creative School of Business in Cape Town, is giving away free online courses during this period of isolation in a #LockdownLearning initiative. 

Four lucky readers will stand a chance to win a course of their choice to the value of R15 000 each. To enter, simply comment below this post on our social media (Facebook or Twitter) to tell us why deserve a Red & Yellow course. Then make sure you have subscribed to the Fast Company SA newsletter on our homepage. Don’t forget to follow Fast Company SA and Red & Yellow School on Facebook and Twitter. In addition, each new subscriber will automatically receive a voucher of R1500 towards a Red & Yellow online course. The competition will run from Monday 6 April to Monday 4 May 2020. One winner will be announced every week.
