Foster-Pedley says Henley Africa is delighted to be the research partner for the awards. “Henley has been involved in growing business leaders in Africa for the past 26 years. Our vision is to build the people, who build the businesses that build Africa. We are therefore very pleased to partner with CNBC Africa, who has its finger on the pulse of Africa’s business news.”
Henley will be encouraging its students, alumni and clients – many of whom are prominent leaders that are making a difference in their industries and communities – to enter the awards.
