Legatum Lecture: Defining the Legacy of the Next Generation of African Leaders

Legatum Lecture: Defining the Legacy of the Next Generation of African Leaders


Fred Swaniker, Founder and CEO, African Leadership Academy

Due to improvements in leadership and governance, Africa today sits at an inflection point, with many believing the continent is on the cusp of rapid economic growth. In this lecture, Fred Swaniker, founder & CEO of the African Leadership Academy, will share his views on what the next generation of African leaders must do to ensure that Africa's rising flame does not burn out, but rather continues to grow from strength to strength, and how the West can play a role in this increasingly bright African future.


Seed Grant Poster session and reception to follow immediately after lecture.
