Africa’s history is a long and fascinating one, but its future is shaping up to be even more interesting.

Guy Lundy | Economic Futurist

KEYNOTES:

Africa’s history is a long and fascinating one, but its future is shaping up to be even more interesting. During the ten years in which The Economist magazine moved from a cover story entitled “Africa: The hopeless continent” in 2001 to one entitled “Africa Rising” in 2011, interest in the last frontier of global business opportunities has skyrocketed.

Uncertainty about the future of the continent still abounds and the complexity of such a vast area consisting of 54 countries is not easy to digest.

Through his behind the scenes knowledge of the continent and his ongoing contact with leading figures, Guy Lundy-Futurist Financial Facilitator is able to present an idea of what opportunities exist, where they can be found, and how to avoid the risks that can trip you up.

Guy Lundy takes a look at what is happening in the world, on the continent of Africa and in South Africa and considers how the major trends affecting us at each of these levels can impact your business in the short, medium and long term.

Threats and opportunities can both be turned into business prospects.

Guy Lundy – Futurist Financial helps his audience see how innovations develop and how the continuous reinvention of the global system can provide your business with the chance to go from strength to strength over the next 5-10 years.

Globalisation is a reality and companies all over the world are increasingly considering emerging markets as their primary source of new business.

New entrants from abroad will eventually challenge companies operating only in the local market.

With stellar economic growth taking place across Africa, therefore, South African companies are increasingly considering expanding their operations to other countries.

However, a bold move into unknown territory can put great strain on the local operation and introduces many unforeseen risks.

In Going Global, Guy Lundy builds on research that he has conducted into lessons learnt by 15 leading South African companies that have developed a multinational presence and offers valuable insight into how best to approach the process of international expansion.
