The Africa Forum London 2019
The Africa Forum is a premier event for those curious and excited about Africa. It is an excellent opportunity to learn about the challenges and opportunities on the continent. Come listen to distinguished speakers who are helping to shape the future and trajectory of this abundant continent.
The Africa Forum is a platform for eminent and emerging leaders from different sections of society from around Africa and the Commonwealth to deliberate on the role of leadership in creating a more sustainable continent and future. ALEF serves a platform for intergenerational exchange of ideas and opinions about practical challenges facing the continent, and an opportunity to enable the next generation of African leaders.
TAF is intended to be a multi-stakeholder gathering, aiming to integrate different African communities to talk about the current issues in Africa and provide them a platform to share their advice and experience.
With keynote addresses, interactive discussions and thought-provoking dialogues, as well as breakaway sessions, to enrich the participants' overall knowledge and propose a substantial agenda for action, The Africa Forum brings some of the powerful leading voices from across the continent and the Commonwealth under one roof to churn out promising ways to secure Africa’s future and contribute to next phase of growth and development on the continent.
The Forum features fresh, actionable and inspiring leadership content from a world-class faculty. Participants forms a dynamic and enthusiastic international community of global problem solvers for Africa.
While providing a platform to discuss critical issues pertaining to the development of the continent and the role of Africans in the diaspora in driving the much needed change in African communities, the Forum also offers a platform for young leaders to explore their beliefs and sharpen their skills, while affording them an opportunity to develop systems thinking and gain skills to participate in processes on a local and global level, on the side-lines of the Forum.
We invite you to leverage the Forum as a resource to transform yourself, your community and Africa.
