I have just accepted an invitation to speak in the 2019 Horasis Global Meeting. The event is co-hosted by the Portuguese Government and the City of Cascais. From the invitation letter:
I take great pleasure to invite you to speak at the 2019 Horasis Global Meeting to be held in Cascais, Portugal over 6-9 April 2019. Under the theme Catalyzing the Benefits of Globalization, the Horasis community of more than 600 selected world leaders (including several heads of governments) from 70 countries will gather for an unparalleled experience devising novel ideas to sustain and nurture our development in the future.
Attending this invitation-only event are prime ministers, presidents, chairman of major global banks and CEOs of many Fortune Global companies.
The annual Horasis Global Meeting is one of the world’s foremost gatherings of business leaders who interact with key government officials and eminent thought leaders.
Horasis is an independent think tank based in Zurich, Switzerland. It holds invitation-only meetings of global business leaders. From its Wikipedia page, the think tank has been dubbed “a kind of junior league World Economic Forum for the emerging market set” by The New York Times.
It would be a fascinating moment to spend the days with these world leaders as we continue to deepen our thought-leadership in Africa and beyond.
