The summit offers a mixture of informal networking and expert insight, with panels, interviews, round table discussions and strategic socialising opportunities.”

The aim of the summit is to help families connect and network, to learn from each other and to prepare for the future and the challenges to come.

Our programme reflects this aim, presenting a mixture of topics including Citizenship by Investment, the potential role of Dubai in the success of African business, and a look at why Mauritius can be considered the Switzerland of Africa.

We will also consider the roles of sport, tourism and manufacturing on the African economy, and the value of building business partnerships between African countries versus creating partnerships with nations outside the continent.

Esteemed Speakers, some of which include:

We have welcomed royalty and world-renowned business icons to address an intimate gathering of delegates, interspersed with unparalleled networking opportunities.
