IoD Online: IoD Africa SIG (special interest group) round table

09 Dec 2021
Online webinar, Online
Please join us for the inaugural meeting for the IoD Africa SIG (special interest group)
After Brexit, and as Britain recovers from Covid-19, global markets will be even more critical to UK British businesses – and Africa’s emerging markets offer huge untapped potentials.

That’s why the Institute of Directors (IoD), founded in 1903 and awarded a Royal Charter to support, represent and set standards for business leaders nationwide is seeking to strengthen links with Africa with the creation in 2021 of a Special Interest Group Africa.

The group is designed to stimulate business opportunities, increase business networking, and grow awareness of the IoD brand and British businesses across a continent made up of 1.2bn potential customers and 24 English speaking countries. 

We will be holding bi monthly round tables and invite members from across the country to join in the discussions.  Please join us for our first event on 9th December where the inaugural Chair,  Joel Popoola of IoD Yorkshire & Nth Est and Biyi Oloko, Ambassador, IoD Berkshire will be joined by our IoD Board member,  Amaechi Nsofor, amongst others

Book your place now to join the discussion and connect with other members interested in Africa.
