The 7th edition of the Pan-African CEO Forum will take place at the CTICC in Cape Town, 14-16 May 2019.  

Do not miss a one of a kind forum in 2020! The African Legal Support Facility and the African Development Bank are collaborating with the Utility CEO Forum: Africa in 2019. They are helping us to ensure all Power Utilities CEOs on the continent participate in this decisive forum. They will share insights and brainstorm with the CEOs around burning issues for the sector. Edison Electric Institute will host Utility CEOs from the USA and Europe for an exchange session on “Things they wish they’d known”. Among other sessions, there will also be a coaching session with a leadership expert.

“It was one of the best forum I have ever attended. The networking and resource presentations were just fantastic” William Liabunya, CEO, EGENCO, Malawi (2018)
