All is now set for the maiden edition of the Africa Workplace Leadership Summit set to hold on 23 June 2022 at BWC Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos and being put together by Fox Leadership Institute.
The event will see African business leaders in the public and private sectors converge in what is being described as an “exceptional and unequivocally epoch-making summit.”
Attending the in-person summit will be entrepreneurs and founders, executives and business leaders, thought leaders and experts, who will gather to discuss issues hindering productivity in the workplace and proffer solutions that are workable in the African context.
Godswill Erondu, convener of the Africa Workplace Leadership Summit, said, “Recent data by Gallup show that African organisations are losing about 84% of their workers’ potential. Which means that business leaders are getting much less results than they could generate in their workplaces.”
Through keynote presentations, panel discussions, and award winning interviews the summit will feature discussions bordering on critical issues about leadership in the workplace, with the goal being to engender action toward the creation of a workplace safe, secure and conducive for great work – a workplace where workers are inspired to unleash their potential and flourish.
In a statement made available to Business A.M., the organisers said the Africa Workplace Leadership Summit avails business leaders a chance to collaborate and strengthen their competitive advantage across their individual value chain, adding that, at the end of the summit a white paper will be released that business leaders can implement in their workplaces.
The organisers said they will produce Africa Workplace Magazine which will contain the presentations, panel discussions during the summit and more.
“The time has come to revolutionise workplaces in African organisations such that innovation is increased, productivity improved and optimal performance experienced,” said Godswill.
A partial line up of expected speakers and panellists in the Summit include Mandisa Makubalo, founder and managing director, Unlimited Experiences, South Africa; Emmanuel Michael, head, people and culture, Letshego MFB, Nigeria; Leslie George, lead consultant, Orizon Boon, Nigeria; Spencer T.
