WealthFest Africa (WEFA), a state of the art, virtual platform with high-level speakers, exhibitors and sponsors from different fields, bringing together delegates across the world. WEFA 2020 is more than a masterclass, with the opportunity of forming strategic alliances across Africa for trade. With an enabling environment for trade in Africa, it provides for disruption of the African narrative, strategically shifting focus from "aid" to "trade". 

By bringing together Africa’s best minds, WealthFest Africa is determined to influence the people of Africa to step out and take up the various opportunities available for wealth creation. The time has come for a move from aid to trade so that we can liberate ourselves from handouts to creating generational wealth.

Our vision is to see an Africa free of aid with wealth-creating opportunities for every African entrepreneur across the continent. A wise man once said the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the second-best time is today; The best time for Africa to have a platform that can bring us together unite, innovate and do business was many years ago actually BC! the next best time is TODAY.

I am here to help you on that journey. I assist ambitious and heart-centred entrepreneurs and business owners from the Diaspora with fast market entry in Africa. I share strategies, action steps, and rare insights that immediately empower you to take leaps. And I help you build your network. You see, I want to challenge you to get much, much more out of life.

For many years, African economic development relied heavily on countries outside of the African Continent. Because of this, Africa was tied to the objectives and strategies  of many of these countries and business entities within these foreign countries. The focus was less on the good of Africa and its people and more on the needs of these countries.

Of course, there were and still are many Countries and organizations within those countries that ARE focused on the economic progression and health of African countries and their people.

Unfortunately, the source of money, corruption and power struggles within and among the African countries has been a cloud over the African potential and its future.

Are we now ready for a change? Are we now ready to "Reverse the Flow"? Can we now begin to build a stronger African-centric economy that is inclusive of the African people and less reliant on "others"? Is it time to now move towards building strong African-owned businesses that reach OUT rather than wait for others to reach in to their country? Are there business and economic models that may give us the answers?

According to the World Tourism Organisation, 1.5 billion international tourist arrivals were recorded in 2019 and the number of destinations earning US$1 billion or more from international tourism has almost doubled since 1998. However, because of the Covid19 pandemic, the global travel industry went down by 22% in Q1 and by 65% in the first half of 2020 when compared with 2019 figures. 

It is clear that the pandemic had a devastating impact on our industry but it also gave us the opportunity to "restart" and reinvent the way the world used to think about innovation in tourism. This session explores ways Africa can position itself as a destination of choice and how the current trends can be transformed into opportunities.
