AVIATORS AFRICA has announced its 3rdLeadership CEO’s Forum come October 27th and 28th, 2021 with plans to change the narrative on how decision and policy makers conduct aviation business in Africa
The hybrid event which holds at the Radisson Blu Anchorage Lagos,,Nigeria has theme as Corporate Governance structure: A Pathway to Sustainability in Africa Aviation will host leaders and CEOs in both the public and private sectors in African Aviation.
According to the host of the event and Chief Executive of Aviator’s Africa, Toni Ukachukwu, the plan is to get decision makers across Africa together to discuss on the challenges and proffer effective solutions that would lead to the sustainability of African aviation.
CEO Aviators Africa, Toni Ukachukwu Ukachukwu said that the team decided on the theme as there is quite little or no corporate governance structure in African aviation and the event is set to bring it to the fore.
“Corporate Governance structure is a challenge but we have not been paying a lot of attention to it but in our 3rdLeadership CEO’s Forum we intend to horn in on it and get a positive direction and use our platform to project whatever solutions we come up with. So it’s a platform open for stakeholders especially leaders to discuss the problem and look for a way forward,” he said.
He also stated that without the leadership being involved, it becomes difficult to achieve some of the set out goals for the industry, explaining that things like SAATM, AfCFTA would not be actualized without the willingness of the political leadership.
On the Aviators Africa Tower Awards, Ukachukwu explained that there are three categories of awards. The first is the changemaker award for individuals, second is for aviation brands and the third is for two individuals (a male and female)who will be inducted into Aviators Africa hall of fame.
Voting opens on the 15th of September on its website www.theaviatorsafrica.
