A growing Pan African Leadership Platform



A few weeks back I launched a pan African leadership platform. I did not know how this will be received. I was so pleased to receive the statistics after the first month. The key highlights are: 

  • More than 3000 new users 
  • Attracting more younger leaders 
  • More women users 
  • Interesting split in traffic sources
  • A growing geographic spread 

A huge thank you to the amazing leaders and young leaders who were part of our inaugural leadership conversations. The feedback has been overwhelming positive, thank you for walking the first tentative step with me. 

This month I am proud to present to you some amazing leaders and young leaders from across Africa and beyond. Here is our list of impressive leaders:
