Your Summit Host: Coach Africa

We believe that deep down in our lifetimes, we all want to grow into the person we are destined to become and that growth equals happiness. The problem is that access to support in our personal development journeys is very unequally spread geographically and we are passionate about changing that.

Coach Africa is a personal development platform where businesses and individuals worldwide can tap into the rich expertise of African experts. Hereby 1) supporting individuals in their personal development journey, 2) improving workplace wellness and diversity & inclusion worldwide, 3) strengthening the private sector whilst enabling African changemakers to tap into global markets and building a next generation of African female leaders.

Whilst building more inclusive companies and societies, we leverage business as a force for good, as we believe we can all change the world through ‘good business’.
