Since 2012, the AFRICA CEO FORUM has brought together more than 5000 business leaders, investors and high-level policy makers from across the continent and around the world. This year, the AFRICA CEO FORUM is taking it further still by launching the AFRICA CEO NETWORK, the first community of influential business leaders on the continent.
The AFRICA CEO NETWORK aims to strengthen networking among influential decision-makers in Africa via a digital platform and regular regional networking events.
Abidjan, Casablanca, Lagos, Nairobi, Kinshasa, Accra, Addis Ababa, Douala, Dakar, Johannesburg: in all four corners of the continent, the AFRICA CEO NETWORK is represented in each of its hubs by a duo of ambassadors, acting as spokespersons for the network and first local contact points for future members.
Toyin Sanni, CEO of Emerging Africa Capital Group and Maher Jarmakani, CEO of Jagal, will have as primary missions to co-build the events which will mark the life of the hub around key themes for local and regional economic development and to work towards the network's growth by participating in the recruitment of new members.
The maiden event of the Lagos hub will take place next June 27. Expert will share insights about possible solutions that can be implemented to tackle Nigeria's power deficit.
At a time when the Free Trade Area is being put in place, the AFRICA CEO NETWORK is giving substance to the AFRICA CEO FORUM's vocation of reinforcing regional integration by promoting business relationships between decision-makers from every part of the continent.
