FORBES WOMAN AFRICA LEADING WOMEN SUMMIT TO BE HOSTED IN DURBAN IN 2019

FORBES WOMAN AFRICA announced its fourth annual Leading Women Summit, which will take place on International Women’s Day on 8 March 2019, and will be hosted in Durban, South Africa.

Following engaging discussions with the KwaZulu-Natal Convention Bureau, the event, which was hosted in Johannesburg since inception, will move to Durban, bringing this much-anticipated gathering to the East Coast.

The FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit celebrates doers and doings; it’s a source of inspiration and support that connects and empowers women around the continent. Across industries and generations, women are addressing today’s most pressing issues through the lens of opportunity, breaking barriers to drive progress within their respective arenas. This invitation-only event is expected to bring together visionaries, nation-builders, innovators and connectors who are shaping the female narrative in Africa.

“In its debut year, in 2016, the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit brought together just over 100 women at the cutting-edge of their professions and industries, to stage a gathering unlike any other in South Africa. With speakers from across the continent, the Summit was an instant hit and has grown year-on-year, both in terms of attendees and support, to become a must-do calendar event for leading women across industries in Africa and beyond.”

– Editor of FORBES AFRICA and FORBES WOMAN AFRICA, Methil Renuka

On par with its international sister events, the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit empowers through knowledge, taking the path less traveled and offering participants an event unlike any other.

“We are excited to be bringing this one-of-a-kind event to KwaZulu-Natal and offering attendees a two-day experience unlike any other they have seen before.”

– Editor of FORBES AFRICA and FORBES WOMAN AFRICA, Methil Renuka

Featuring keynote talks, panel discussions, one-on-one interviews and interstitial spotlights, the 2019 FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit will bring together the voices and insights of a diverse range of female luminaries.

The FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit has become synonymous with wide-ranging programming designed to inspire action and fuel creative fires that span five core pillars: Leadership, Business, Sports, Entertainment and Science. The Summit will showcase women of impact who are not just raising powerful questions, but who are also answering them by leveraging their platforms to lead transformative change.



In addition to the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit, attendees will also witness the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Awards at a glamorous gala dinner hosted at the Durban International Convention Centre. The FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Awards have shared the stage with Africa’s largest business recognition, the All Africa Business Leaders Awards in partnership with CNBC Africa to date, and now, the celebration of women’s achievements has reached a tipping point, where it will hold its own.

Having recognised Wendy Appelbaum, daughter of Liberty Group founder Donald Gordon and the Owner and Chair of De Morgenzon Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, as well as Phuti Mahanyele, Executive Chairperson of Sigma Capital to date, the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Awards will celebrate on its own stage, those women who have defined an industry and are leaders amongst equals across a handful of individual categories.



The gathering promises to be the biggest to date with invitees including a diverse group of stakeholders from the worlds of corporate Africa, technology, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, media and entertainment. FORBES WOMAN AFRICA’s event management division ABN EVENT PRODUCTIONS, will once again be producing the event.

Additional speakers will be announced in the coming months on the FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Leading Women Summit website. Visit here for more details: www.leadingwomensummit.co.za
