Our Africa Keynote Speakers

The continent of Africa is the second largest in the world, covering 10% of the earth’s land, and it’s predicted that by the end of the century a third of the global population will live in Africa. States like Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Nigeria have some of the fastest GDP growth rates in the world. Ethiopia has a predicted growth rate of 8.5%, over three times more than the US economy (2.8%).

Our keynote speakers on Africa can offer their first hand experience and insight into one of the world’s most fascinating continents, sharing their views and predictions on the future of Africa, in terms of manufacturing, science, trade and politics. Let them give your audience a fresh view of their fascinating continent, a region of the world which faces hardships and crisis, but is underpinned by resilience and determination.
