SVAI (Shared Value Africa Initiative) is excited to invite all CEOs and executives to the 2021 CEO Connect Roundtable on 4 June! Themed 'Competitive Collaboration in Africa - One Africa, One Voice', this high-level leadership engagement platform aims to bring business leaders together for vital discussions reflecting the current regional, continental and global context and the drive for economic recovery and growth.
This year, the Shared Value leadership community is set to discuss the importance of purpose-driven leadership and the role and responsibilities of business in creating sustainability, contributing to economic recovery and assisting to secure a future for all, with a focus on action points from our leaders to grow Africa’s economy in line with the goals and objectives of Agenda 2030.
The event will be in the form of a roundtable discussion with Professor Mark Kramer delivering a keynote touching on 10 years of Shared Value and what is next for business and the Shared Value community. In addition, since 2021 commemorates the 10-year anniversary of the development of the Shared Value Business Management concept, the CEO Connect also forms part of a global celebratory programme in recognition of this milestone.
