The Business of Education, 2018

Why the Business of Education?

Whether or not we live in Africa, all of our futures will be affected by the success or failure of education on the continent. 

We started the Business of Education summit in 2017 to serve as a true channel for proffering solutions to problems in our education system in order to build a great future for the coming generations.

At the inaugural edition, hundreds ofschool leaders and other education stakeholdersin attendance were immensely impacted and they left the event's venue with a stern commitment to making a difference in our education system. Our 2017 speakers and panelists included Prof. Chris Ogbechie, Mr. Lanre Olushola, Dr. Sanyaolu Adebodun, Mrs. Biola Alabi, Mr. Raghav Lal, Mr. Darrell Mcgraw and many others.

Our Focus this Year

This year’s edition promises to be bigger, better and highly insightful. Participants will be engaged by renowned educationists, thought leaders and experienced policy makers within and outside the country.

In preparation for the learning demands of tomorrow and beyond, it is imperative that all hands must be on deck. But what roles do we all need to play as stakeholders in the education sector? This year’s summit will sufficiently answer this question and provide the way forward in ensuring that the next generation of students our schools produce are Future Ready. Hence the theme: Future Ready Education: Roles of Policy Makers, School Leaders and Technology.
