About

The Utility CEO Forums are closed door boardroom meetings, by invitation only and facilitated under Chatham House Rules. The interactive and collaborative platforms foster dialogue through confidentiality and trust, allowing utility CEOs an opportunity to tackle the most pressing topics and challenges they are facing. The Utility CEO Forums pave the way for transformation by discussing issues of strategic planning, financing models and regional centres of excellence throughout Africa.
