Speakers

The theme of our 2018 conference is “Re-Imagining Growth in Africa”.

The aim of this year’s conference is to highlight Africa’s growth potential by considering how to translate economic growth to the broader population in order to drive inclusivity and create impact on the ground. In particular, we will focus on models and structures unique to the continent and discuss the leapfrog methodologies that have spearheaded growth on the continent thus far.

Through eminent dignitaries and luminaries from a wide cross-section of sectors such as Finance and Investment, Energy and Infrastructure, Entrepreneurship and Technology, and Social Innovation, the 2018 Business in Africa Conference seeks to provide a platform to demonstrate and discuss how multinationals, financiers, non-governmental organisations, entrepreneurs, and students can make an impact in their chosen field.

Throughout the conference, we hope that panel members and participants alike are inspired to consider how they can not only create meaningful impact, but also inspire and motivate others to strive to do the same.
