In recent years, a myriad of conferences and "talk shops” on Africa have been convened across the globe; this remains an on-going trend. The discussion mostly majors on the opportunity fever that has caught the world.
Africa is undoubtedly the world’s next economic frontier- the growth statistics are colossal, and there is an outlandish influx of foreign investors seeking to explore the beehive of opportunities locked in the African Soil. However, these opportunities are not without huge challenges. Some companies have crossed the chasm- haven evolved into domestic and regional giants, while some other companies are in the process of breaking into the big league, yet, majority have struggled under the heat of the complexity and complication of doing business in Africa.
How do we convert these vast business opportunities into successful ventures and further actualise tangible developments for Africa? How do we leapfrog these challenges? How do we make our SMEs more competitive and position them successfully against the influx of global players? These are answers that participants will get at LBS African Business Conference.
ABC seeks to bridge the gap between future business leaders (an emerging crop of high potential young entrepreneurs) and successful business leaders who have risen above the daunting challenges of doing business in Africa and have metamorphosed into entrepreneurial prodigies. The conference will set the pace in creating a prosperous future for the continent. The Conference will also be a rare opportunity for participants to gain key insights from, and engage with prominent Business Leaders, Senior Public Sector Representatives, Investors and the Academia who are shaping Africa.
Keynote speakers will include Aliko Dangote, Chief Executive Dangote Group and Tony Elumelu Chairman of Heirs Holding Limited.
