Our Impact

I was honored to be asked to speak at such a fascinating event. The Leadership Africa Summit demonstrated inspirational content, quality education and inclusive fellowship. The Summit was so impactful that I took away more than I contributed.

The Leadership Africa Summit was one of the most significant events for Omaha in 2019. The diversity and inclusion - through programming, speakers, and logistics - was well planned and implemented. The national and international speakers brought an inspiring and global perspective. The Summit is a must-attend event for 2020!
