Municipal Leaders Forum

What is the Municipal Leaders Forum?

The Municipal Leaders Forum is a peer-to-peer learning platform. The regulatory framework is changing in South Africa and Municipal Leaders have a lot of questions on how they can best manage their electricity departments moving forward. For two days, this new Forum aims to support municipal leaders with:

  • Exchange of best practice from other municipalities in South Africa as well as the African continent and internationally
  • Leadership and industry expertise so they can face the upcoming changes with confidence and with the right partners by their side
  • Tangible and practical solutions that Municipal managers can feed back to their teams

Why Partner With Us    Become An Expert Partner

  • New technologies, regulations and business models now mean Municipalities are facing unprecedented disruption in their electricity revenue models. The Municipal Leader Forum has been specifically developed to allow the leaders responsible in this crucial local government space to expand their skill set, equip them to be proactive rather than reactive and take advantage of the incredible opportunities created by this disruption.
