Africa CEO Forum: The Family Business Summit
More than 150 leading African family business leaders and shareholders will share their current and past experiences in order to turn the crisis into a source of opportunity.
This online event, scheduled to be held for the first time on 1 and 2 October 2020, will give family business owners and leaders from more than 30 African and international countries the opportunity each year to interact with one another as well as with recognised experts, exchange ideas and best practices, and forge ties for future business partnerships.
Over the course of six hours of conferences, themed workshops and networking events between economic leaders, the who's who of the African family business world will also delve deeper into, through a practical approach, a number of key issues still facing them today: corporate governance, family governance, financing, generational handover, talent management, transaction structuring, etc.
Ward Center Executive Director Jennifer Pendergast will provide the Keynote Address entitled: CONTINUITY AND LONGEVITY: WHY FAMILY BUSINESSES WITHSTAND CRISES.
