Forum celebrates the bold visions of business people in Africa, including Trevor Manuel and Dolika Banda
|With a burgeoning youth population, stabilising political landscape, and an abundance of natural resources, Africa is often hailed as the next global economic powerhouse.
The Oxford Business Forum Africa (http://www.Oxfordbfa.com) will explore the reality of business in Africa and the true opportunities and challenges to starting, consolidating, and scaling businesses there. By learning directly from leading business people working in Africa, the Forum focuses on understanding the interconnected nature of business, the diversity of markets and consumers in African countries, and the innovative approaches business adopt to maximise their impact.
The theme ‘Unreasonable Africa’ celebrates individuals who are finding solutions and opportunities beyond the expected, who are challenging the status quo, and whose bold visions and decisions have led to exceptional successes.
Key sessions of the Forum will be livestreamed and people all over the world can participate in the discussions by submitting questions to twitter; more information is available here: http://www.APO.af/lIZkl0.
Hosted jointly by Saïd Business School (http://www.SBS.ox.ac.uk), Oxford University, and the Oxford Business Network for Africa, led by current Oxford MBA students, the Forum will convene over 30 speakers from pioneering start-ups, leading financial institutions and corporate companies, NGOs, and government.
