LBS Africa Business Summit

May 7, 2016 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

| £50 – £200

The London Business School Africa Club is excited to present its 15th Annual Africa Business Summit scheduled to be held in London on Saturday 7th May 2016. In keeping with the London Business School’s tradition of substantive thought leadership, this year’s summit theme inspired by the Swahili phrase ‘UKWELI’ will explore the new realities of doing business in Africa. The summit attracts circa 400 delegates each year and provides a platform for a frank debate on effective strategies for sustaining the continent’s positive momentum. While a growing labour force and a large and emerging consumer market holds the promise of significant further growth opportunities, Africa’s resource dependent governments are fighting to manage the impact of falling commodity prices and depreciating currencies.

Keynote addresses from a diverse and distinguished roster of high calibre leaders with significant experience on the continent offering practical insights: opportunities, challenges of doing business, individual market characteristics, and best practices. The day’s proceedings will culminate with our first ever Alumni awards ceremony during a seated Gala dinner reception with live African entertainment for a chance to deepen connections in a relaxed setting and carry on the day’s active debates. The ultimate networking and learning opportunity for students and professionals with a passion for doing business and investing in Africa.
