The speaker series provides our young leaders with opportunities to engage with dynamic and inspirational leaders who are having profound impact across different sectors and industries in Africa and the world. We believe that exposure to such leaders will create defining moments in the leadership journeys of our students and will effectively reinforce the life skills and lessons they need to transform Africa. Recent guest speakers have included Former South Africa Deputy President, Phumzile Mlabo-Ngcuka; former Anti-corruption Commissioner for Sierra Leone, Abdul Tejan-Cole, and Ghana’s most respected CEO, Ken Ofori-Atta. Click here to see our Guest Speaker Brochure.
