We are also the organizers of the young CEO’S business summit (YCBS), designed for pioneering CEOs who aspire to conduct their businesses in tandem with global best practices. These CEO’s focus more on creating value for all of their stakeholders and then fulfill deeper purpose of their organization which is giving back to society and making it better than they met it. They consciously integrate and cultivate cultures that support people to learn, grow, develop and flourish. With collaborations from young CEOs across Africa specifically from Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Gambia, Mali, Malawi, Botswana, Cape Verde, Ethiopia and that of our counterpart from UK, Asia, USA and Europe, we are set to explore international idea exchange, Collaborations and synergies that will guarantee business excellence for our continent and the rest of the world.

 

The YCBF is committed to inspiring young business leaders around the world, equipping them with relevant business and social skills necessary to command collective positive actions that will improve the state of our world. The YCBF engages young political and enterprise leaders alongside high net worth business and political figures who act as mentors, panelists and keynote speakers supporting the forum to shape global business agendas.

 

Participating CEOs gain perspective on their own current leadership challenges, looking both at their personal styles and the global strategic context of their industries. Matching individuals with the best in the industries or sectors of interest is our own strategic posture to guarantee value for all our participating CEOs.
