About the Leadership Across Borders Programme

Future Leaders from Europe, the US and the UK will work in teams with entrepreneurs and leaders from start-up and medium-sized businesses from across Africa to explore the leadership challenges they are each facing, provide mentoring and advice and work together to develop innovative new ideas to help businesses and society.

A modular virtual programme to be run in June 2021 for up to 50 participants from Africa, Europe and the UK. Each module will last 3 hours and include inputs from experienced leaders introducing new leadership concepts as well as the chance to work in teams facilitated by accredited coaches.

A unique opportunity to think outside the box and work with leaders from around the world.”


Leaders in today’s world require personal strength, humanity and compassion to support the people in their organisation, their  customers and society as they confront the most challenging of times.

This means they need to understand themselves, their values, drivers and strengths. They also need to understand how they perform under pressure and manage their own personal derailers. 

By taking part in this programme, leaders will meet others from across the world and develop their awareness of the challenges other face as well as enriching their own understanding of themselves.

Agility, creativity and innovation

Participants will work in teams on real business challenges being faced in Africa, developing new and creative ideas to solve them.

Input from qualified coaches and experienced senior leaders will help them develop their ideas and understand how to innovate and build solutions that can help businesses and people.

Leadership development

Participants will be introduced to key leadership concepts including Agile Leadership, VUCA, and Innovative Leadership. These frameworks and thinking will help them in working on real-world challenges and developing real solutions together.

Collaborating with colleagues from different organisations and parts of the world will help develop new leadership perspectives and mindsets they can take back into their leadership roles.

Mentoring skills

The future leaders from Europe and UK will be trained in mentoring skills and use them to mentor participants from across Africa.

Mentoring is a vital leadership skill and participants will develop these skills and experience in an exciting and innovative environment.

We hope that these mentoring relationships will continue after the programme and that these skills will last a lifetime.
