Our flagship event of the year will be hosted by the British Trade Commissioner for Africa, Emma Wade-Smith OBE, at her official residence in Illovo. She will be discussing the UK's approach to international trade in Africa, including the impact of Brexit.

We are also pleased to have Neliswa Fente as a special guest. Neliswa Fente is a co-founder of SpringAGE, a youth-led innovation consulting firm, recently acquired by Deloitte, which brings together dynamic young people in South Africa to find innovative solutions for corporations. Neliswa, who is a Mandela Washington Fellow, and was selected as a World Economic Forum Global Shaper, will be sharing her perspective on leading and engaging millennials.
