  • The Global Leadership Africa Summit is a critical platform in reshaping Africa’s narrative, particularly in the West. The conference provides a unique opportunity to learn, network, and connect with members of the diaspora with a shared interest in Africa. The Leadership Africa Summit is intentional about setting the stage and contributing towards Africa’s economic, social, and cultural development through dialogue and empowerment. I look forward to participating each year.

  • Anyone taking time to attend the Global Leadership Africa Summit will agree that it is a very positive learning experience, with programming well aimed to enhance skills and inform attendees of terrific opportunities in local, national and international business. The networking opportunities are impressive and for the City of Omaha, this event is a signature and visible attraction that highlights opportunities that have too often been overlooked. The event and regional attendance were impressive. Don't miss the next one.

  • Global Leadership Africa Summit was a phenomenal all encompassing conference. Bringing not only the community together with one goal of improving and empowering the continent of Africa. Boris Kodjoe’s exceptional keynote speech was not only moving but a powerful testament when action and unity can coincide together.
