What is the Utility CEO Forum?
The Utility CEO Forums are exclusive, by invitation only, gatherings of African Utility and IPP CEOs within the power sector. The forums provide a unique, dynamic and safe space to discuss challenges from peer to peer, to network and to share best practices in an environment both relaxed and challenging at the same time. The networking and learning platform indeed challenges leaders to lead by example and to look at problems innovatively with a collective approach.
The CEO Forum team engages with CEOs throughout the year to support them 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 Utility CEO Forum has been successfully running since 2012. Over the years, 64 Utilities have attended our forums. The platform has been growing consistently with a record attendance of 31 Utility CEOs from 17 countries who attended our latest forum co-located with African Utility Week.
When and where do the forums take place?
The Utility CEO Forum: Africa, our pan-African forum welcoming CEOs from the entire continent, is always co-located with African Utility Week every year in May in Cape Town, South Africa. Four regional forums are organised throughout the year to continue the conversation at a regional level. Regional forums might rotate depending on the Host Utility.
