“The Africa Soft Power Summit is pivotal in reshaping the conversation around Africa’s growth and the sectors that power this transformation. In addition to leveraging the power of Africa’s creative and tech industries to deliver tangible opportunities for our young people domestically, we know that these sectors can help retell the narrative about modern Africa on the world stage, and allow it to contribute a unique and insightful voice across both the public and private sectors globally”, says Dr. Nkiru Balonwu, Founder, Africa Soft Power Group. “With the summit, we are also ensuring that the continent is part of the wider global conversation around the key intersectional issues of our time. This gathering is more than a summit; it’s a testament to Africa’s growing global influence and innovative spirit”.

Over four action-packed days, the Summit will host three key events: the Remarkable African Women’s Leadership Conference, the Creative & Innovative Industries Conference, and the Africa Soft Power Gala & Awards.
