Utility CEO Forum

CEO Forum


The Utility CEO Forums are closed door boardroom meetings, by invitation only and facilitated under Chatham House Rules. The interactive and collaborative platforms foster dialogue through confidentiality and trust, allowing utility CEOs an opportunity to tackle the most pressing topics and challenges they are facing. The Utility CEO Forums pave the way for transformation by discussing issues of strategic planning, financing models and regional centres of excellence throughout Africa.

“The forum is beneficial because it raises awareness of the
issues faced by Utility CEOs. It was a great forum.”
Joel Kontchou, CEO, ENEO, Cameroo


The 7th edition of the Pan-African CEO Forum will take place at the CTICC in Cape Town, 14-16 May 2019.  The two programmes for power and the water utility CEOs run in parallel and attendees come together for social and networking events.
