As an industry leader, you are responsible for creating and ensuring the future of your organisation. Thus you chart direction and strategy and ensure that an appropriate and effective organisational culture exists for the attainment of the strategic goals and objectives.

Today’s global, interconnected world calls for senior leaders who are uniquely attuned to the economic currents and market shifts that could advance – or undermine – their firm’s long-term sustainability.

The Global CEO – Africa Programme has been designed and developed to further equip CEO’s and industry leaders within Africa to capitalise on the opportunities within the continent and to master the various challenges within Africa, while still capitalising on global opportunities and experience.

This programme has been designed to provide the opportunity to further understand global trends, opportunities, challenges and solutions.
