The African Business Leaders Forum 2011 is designed to help business leaders in the public and private sectors to understand and strengthen their resolve to fight poverty and under-development on the continent. It will also provide a platform for business leaders in Africa and the Diaspora to share insights and debate business development options. Participants will have the opportunity of learning from the experiences of renowned entrepreneurs and prominent world-class business leadership experts. The high-level networking sessions also provide opportunities for strategic business partnerships among delegates.

Speakers at previous ABLF sessions included past and present African Heads of State, Government Ministers, top-notch business executives, entrepreneurs and CEOs from the African continent and beyond.

Aside the knowledge building and high-level business networking opportunities presented by ABLF, there will also be an international exhibition, which your outfit could take advantage of to present its unique selling propositions to an exclusive and well-defined group of organizational and individual consumers.
