The focus on the stakes and challenges of a continent in transition and key sustainable development issues such as managing resources, carbon footprint and social inclusion will enable participants to acquire a greater understanding of new high performing business models that are more sustainable and inclusive.


Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.Jack Welch

  • Anticipate and understand current geopolitical, economic, technological, social and societal changes
  • Imagine innovative and effective business models from an economic, social and environmental perspective
