We will be hearing once again from Mr Michael Stone about the Archbishop Tutu Leadership Fellowships, the goal of which is to nurture and enhance leadership capability across Africa, with particular focus on Africa’s most promising young leaders.

At this event last year, Michael was introduced to Ms Samah Salman, who was successfully awarded a place on the programme and we will also hear a few words from Samah about what she has gained from having the opportunity to be a part of this programme.

AfLI’s aim is to create a network of high potential young Africans who have attended the programmes, and who are expected to rise to top leadership positions in their sphere of activity over the next 5-20 years. AfLI will provide leadership learning activities that enhance their experiences, insights, tools and confidence, and provide a support network that will better enable them to become drivers of the transformation of Africa.
