Talent for Africa: In the Global Setting – Coming Full Circle

As we come full circle in the final session of the forum, we will be wrapping up these important conversations as we discuss Africa’s leadership, management, and entrepreneurship capacity in the global setting.  Africa is a changing environment as the young talent seeks greater education, entrepreneurs are hungry entering the fourth industrial revolution, and government solutions are leaning towards the sustainable formal economy.  Africa is rising as a global player and is a true beneficiary in the global arena and we are here to celebrate that, as well as help the rest of the world to benefit from it.
