Updates from #ALN2014: AAE finalist workshops

Today marks the first day of workshops for the AAE finalists. [Don’t remember who they are? Learn more here and vote for the people’s choice award!]

This afternoon, they participated in a workshop with ALN’s anchor sponsor Omidyar Network on the topic of succession planning for African businesses. Susan Phillips,Omidyar Network’s Vice President of Human Capital, led the session, which prompted discussion around long-term strategy.

ALN partner ABAX Corporate Services also led a workshop for AAE finalists on company governance and management. The session included case studies on some of the work ABAX has done with existing clients from across Africa.

In addition, interviews with AAE finalists continued. The ALN team asked the finalists questions about the paths they followed to create successful ventures on the continent.

We’re looking forward to the arrival of ALN members tomorrow!
