Utility CEO Forum

What is the Utility CEO Forum?

The Utility CEO Forum is a peer-to-peer network event for African Utility CEOs. The closed-door gatherings enable discussion and collaboration and provide relevant strategic insights to tackle their challenges. The confidential, by invitation only meeting provides CEOs with a platform to explore opportunities and strategize for the future.

The Utility CEO Forum supports CEOs in their daily responsibilities with leadership and industry expertise through post-forum reports, monthly newsletters and tailored content developed with and for the members.

The Forum will consist of one pan African Forum hosted in a hybrid format as part of Enlit Africa (7 - 9 June 2022) and will include additional digital touch points throughout the year.

The Utility CEO Forum is a year-round exclusive series of engagements between our expert partners, African Utility CEOs and IPP CEOS from all over Africa.

The Utility CEO Forum will be taking place from 7 - 9 June 2022.
