The 4th edition of the Under 40 CEOs forum – tagged “Not Business as Usual” is set to hold virtually on December 18th, 2020.
The year 2020 can be aptly described as a year of disruption. This disruption is a pandemic-led one – significantly changing the dynamics of businesses and their operations across the world. This reality has facilitated the bankruptcy of several businesses in Africa and has also accelerated the growth of some ‘outliers’.
Even though there have been breakthroughs in research on the Corona Virus Vaccine, the World Health Organization has projected that the world would still have to grapple with the health impact of the pandemic for the next couple of years. This is even truer for several African economies that are slipping into recession and economic crisis.
In order to harness the lessons from the failures and successes of organizations in this period, Under 40 CEOs is organizing a virtual forum that brings together business leaders across various economic sectors to draw insights and share recommendations on what business operations within the African context should and can be in the next few years. This would also provide a platform for local and international collaborations leveraging technology to aid business sustainability.
The 1-day, single panel session event will have over 5,000 delegates from across Africa.
Speakers include Dr. Ola Brown(Flying Doctors, Nigeria), Patrick Buchana (AC Group, Rwanda), Yawa Hansen-Quao (Emerging Public Leaders, Ghana), Kamil Olufowobi (MIPAD, UN), Aisha Pandor (SweepSouth, South Africa), Emile Kinuma (TransUnion, Rwanda) and Familusi Akin Babajide (Executive Director for Africa at Under 40 CEOs).
The Keynote speaker is Vusi Thembekwayo (Impact Investment Fund, South Africa) and the host is Fade Ogunro (BookingsAfrica.com).
The grand finale of the Under 40 CEOs 5th Anniversary Jumpstart Fund where 5 winners will leave with $1,300 each will also take place at the event.
