    The Africa Forum Canada 2018

    The Africa (Business and Leadership) Forum is a platform for eminent and emerging leaders from different sections of society from around Africa and the Commonwealth to discuss leadership and innovation in Africa. TAF serves a platform for intergenerational exchange of ideas and opinions about practical challenges facing the continent, and opportunities available on the continent.

    Through this forum, CAFI draws together African business, political and societal leaders with global preeminent companies and policymakers in order to forge stronger trade and investment ties. The Forum aims at bringing together shrewd entrepreneurs, key opinion leaders and social influencers, CEO’s and selected politicians and non-governmental organizations to develop fresh commercial and social concepts that shape business, as well as economic thought and institutions.

    A convergence of young African leaders, Africans in diaspora, international business leaders and innovative entrepreneurs, distinguished leaders from top companies, innovative start-ups, government, and civil society from across Africa to have an inspired and focused discussion on enterprise, growth and leadership and doing business in/with Africa, the Forum features fresh, actionable and inspiring leadership content from a world-class faculty. Participants forms a dynamic and enthusiastic international community of global problem solvers for Africa.

    TAF is intended to be a multi-stakeholder gathering, aiming to integrate different African diaspora communities to talk about the current issues in Africa and provide them a platform to share their advice and experience. The Forum is also an opportunity to enable the next generation of African economic and political leaders

    With keynote addresses, interactive discussions and thought-provoking dialogues, as well as breakaway sessions, to enrich the participants’ overall knowledge and propose a substantial agenda for action, The Africa Forum brings some of the powerful leading voices from across the continent and the Commonwealth under one roof to churn out promising ways to secure Africa’s future and contribute to next phase of growth and development on the continent.

    While providing a platform to discuss critical issues pertaining to the development of the continent and the role of Africans in the diaspora in driving the much needed change in African communities, the Forum also offers a platform for young leaders to explore their beliefs and sharpen their skills, while affording them an opportunity to develop systems thinking and gain skills to participate in processes on a local and global level, on the side-lines of the Forum.

    We invite you to leverage the Forum as a resource to transform yourself, your community and Africa, while also connecting with Africa’s decision makers.
