WHAT IS THE MUNICIPAL LEADERS FORUM?

The Municipal Leaders Forum is a networking and peer-to-peer learning platform that will launch for the first time from 18-19 November, one week prior to African Utility Week & POWERGEN Africa from 24 – 26 November 2020.

• 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 feedback to their teams
