Is this you too?

“There needs to be a critical mass in society where people are prepared to speak up because there is always a cost to doing the right thing, not just individual costs but there might be business costs as well. So, it needs strength of character and support from an organisation or from others to be able to do it.”

“I just want to see how we can move things forward – because I don’t think anything should be this hard.”

Quotes from research conducted with Nigerian female C-suite executives, entrepreneurs and governance professionals in Q4, 2020

Recognise and Prevent Conflict of Interest

With Pamela Watson, Founder of Butterfly Coalition and Olatowun Candide-Johnson, Founder of GAIA Africa and guest panellists.

Conflicts of interest exist in African business, often unrecognised for what they are and misunderstood as to why they should be stopped. After all, shouldn't you help your sister?

Our panel will discuss conflict of interest: how to recognise it, the consequences of failing to eliminate it without exception and how to prevent it recurring in your small and large businesses in Africa.

We invite you to offer your experiences and point of view to our discussion during our Q&A.
