The 3rd edition of the Africa Directors Summit will equip executives, board members, directors and governance professionals with the knowledge required to help them excel as stewards who can promote long-term and sustainable value creation for their respective organisations.

Drawing on thought leadership from world-renowned experts and leading practicing directors from across Africa and beyond, the event integrates academic research with a deep understanding of the emerging issues that boardrooms face today.

The event will also feature panel discussions devoted to emerging issues in the field of corporate governance, which include sustainability and ethics, as well as strategies to address today’s corporate risks; shareholder activism, the disruptive impact of technology and cyber risk; and corporate social responsibility.

Delegates will get an opportunity to interact with fellow peers in the governance space; and to learn from insights provided by top governance experts with world-class experience in corporate governance.

Held annually, the event is a must-attend for current and aspiring governance professionals and chief executives, as it gives everyone a chance to gain valuable insight from fellow professionals while also having the opportunity to share their own best practices.
