Our advisory board is a new initiative for the Infrastructure Exchange’s Africa Road Infrastructure and Investment Congress 2019. The committee have been recruited specifically to help us improve our engagement with key stakeholders, better represent the voice of Africa when it comes to shaping the event’s content and various programmes and as well to advise us on navigating the ever changing political climate in Africa.
The advisory board will help the team through advisory panel meetings and calls taken on a regular basis. The advisory board will be present at the Road Infrastructure and Investment Congress in Nairobi, not only to advise us on site but also to assist on some aspects of the agenda and speaker profiling.
