2019 theme announced for FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit

2019 theme announced for FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit:

The fourth annual FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit – hosted by KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Government – will focus on innovation and non-conformity with its latest theme, ‘New Wealth Creators’. A selection of the continent’s most influential women in business, sports, science, entertainment and leadership will engage on this topic at Durban’s Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre on Friday, 8 March.

“This year we want to turn the spotlight on those forward-thinking female entrepreneurs who are making a significant impact in some of the more unconventional sectors,” explained Methil Renuka, Managing Editor of FORBES AFRICA and FORBES WOMAN AFRICA, and this year’s host. “These women are pioneering within industries, as well as pioneering industries themselves, tapping into previously unknown sources of income and transforming the world as we know it. Guests will get a full day and evening to hear these stories and engage with these inspiring women.”

Some of the emerging industries that will be explored by these ‘New Wealth Creators’ include, among others:

· Virtual and Augmented Reality
· Medical Marijuana
· FinTech
· Biotechnology
· Content Marketing
· Green Energy
· Drones
· Mobility Technology
· Gaming Platforms
· Security
· Agritech
· Mining
· Recycling Waste

The panel of speakers has been carefully selected to reflect the summit’s core values. Each woman has made a significant impact on their chosen sector by achieving financial success, creating jobs, developing sustainable initiatives, displaying sound management practices – all the while retaining integrity, vision and leadership.

Since its inception in 2016, the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit – hosted in association with ABSA and the IDC – has grown, with the 2019 edition set to be the biggest summit yet. There are a number of invited speakers who will be addressing an anticipated audience of some 500 leading women during keynote talks, panel discussions and one-on-one interviews.

“The summit was established to celebrate the many accomplishments of women on the continent and, in doing so, provide others with inspiration and support to continue breaking barriers across industries,” said Renuka. “These ‘New Wealth Creators’ are visionaries, shaping our narrative in new territory and I look forward to learning from them.”

In addition to the daytime networking, attendees to the summit are invited to the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Awards’ – a glamorous gala dinner celebrating who have made a remarkable impact in the business, sports, science, entertainment and leadership categories. The gala dinner will take place at Durban’s Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre from 6.30pm.
