AIESEC Alumni Africa & Middle East will hold its first joint Regional Congress on March 15-18, 2018 at Radisson Blu, Ikeja GRA with the theme, “Positioning for global impact – Leadership and economic synergy in a transforming world.”
The congress is an annual event, significant in setting the necessary framework and action plans that will guide programs and activities for the year with over 200 delegates in attendance from the region and the international body.
Confirmed Speakers for the event include the CEO of Just Food Ltd Tunde Ogunrinde, Founder Keexs (The Footwear Brand) Jide Ipaye and Moses Babatope, Group Executive Director/COO, FilmOne and co-Founder of Filmhouse.
Sponsors of the event include Digital reality, Just foods and Afex Commodities Exchange Limited.
The theme was borne out of a need to look outwards and become significantly involved in global citizenship and leadership, creating transformation within our different localities as well as globally.
From leaders of large industries and organizations to entrepreneurs, we are seeking ways to synergize our various strengths, spur innovation and create positive global impact in leadership, business synergy across regions and service to humanity.
During the course of the congress, the INSPIRE AFRICA project will be launched at the Gala Night Dinner/ 70th Anniversary celebration on Friday the 16th of March an event that is scheduled to start at 7pm. The project proposes to inspire, engage and influence public students in secondary schools and tertiary institutions through storytelling.
With the help of successful opinion leaders and captains of industries, AIESEC Alumni Nigeria plans to reach over 1 million students across the country within the first year of the Inspire Africa Project thereby addressing the 4th and 8th Sustainable Development Goals of ‘Quality Education’ and ‘Decent Work and Economic Growth’.
A subset of the project will involve grants of learning tools to secondary schools such as books and computers loaded with a comprehensive coding curriculum.
