Every great  leader needs to tell great stories. And every storyteller ends up telling stories about great and not so great leaders. Indra has told the stories of Nelson Mandela, Augusto Pinochet (the Chilean dictator), Mikhail Gorbochev (the Soviet leader who ended the Cold War), Kurt Waldheim (the head of the UN and President of Austria), Sadaam Hussein (the Iraqi leader)  and Margaret Thatcher (the Prime Minister of the UK). 

Indra will share what he has learnt about leadership, about storytelling and why and how the two are linked.

Talking Event: Dr. Lopez Galviz
Synopsis: Understanding the future of cities requires a sound understanding of their past. The longer the perspective we take to study cities the better. In this talk, Dr Lopez Galviz will focus on three cities at three different times in their history, namely, London circa 1851, Paris circa 1965 and Shanghai circa 2005 to explore questions such as: (a) how the future of the three cities was envisioned, understood and shaped in three different periods; (b) who has taken part in the process, through which mechanisms and with what consequences; (c) what role have technology and science played in urbanization and urban change; and (d) how is the future of cities today (in 2017) different from their future as it was seen 160 years ago.

Kwaku Bediako, is the young fashion designer brain behind the design brand Chocolate. Kweku started Chocolate as a one man operation but says his business has now grown into a fashion house capable of handling 1000 orders a month. In an interview with CNN’s Amir Gaftari on African Start-up, Kwaku Bediako disclosed that the idea behind his brand name chocolate is aimed at making people crave for his products the more. Kweku revealed that his love for the arts is more than that of money making him do what he does. According to him, business has to make sense for people to crave for it. Kweku's aim with the Chocolate is to build and empire and compete with foreign brands in the likes of Giorgio Armani and Prada.

Talk by Dr Andreea Zara
SIGN UO to attend Dr. Zaara's talk on: 

Causes and Causalities: An Aristotelian framework

 

Causes and causality are core in our explanatory attempts. While we use those concepts almost every day we rarely reflect on their meaning.

In fact, the way we conceptualize those concepts is tacitly rooted in the Newtonian paradigm which considers causes solely as efficient causes and implies a certain type of causality. Aristotle suggested a contrario that there are 4 types of irreducible causes and different causalities. This framework presents another world view and thought structure which enables us to enrich our analysis of social phenomena.

This presentation seeks to highlight the importance of taking time to think about the way we think and wishes to inspire to look for different perspectives.   

MORE ABOUT DR. ANDREEA ZARA:

Andreea Zara holds a PhD in Economics and Social Sciences from the University of Geneva, and is an expert on Organisational Studies. Her research and work experience spans from Switzerland to France to Vietnam to Romania to Serbia and she has done research on topics such as the Balkan Mafia in Serbia, Electricity distribution in Switzerland and industrial management in Vietnam.

Writing from Africa: Literature in Disruptive Innovation with Roshni Mooneram, Feminist Writer and Activist
Come meet Roshni Mooneram, a Feminist Writer and Activist among others, to talk about Writing from Africa: Literature in Disruptive Innovation. My journeys personal and professional have taken me to this conclusion: The seeds of things to come lie within us. At a time when we need to find creative, innovative solutions to global and local
problems under the constraints of limited resources, we cannot afford to not harness the full potential of every human being, every organisation, in terms of power, energy, intelligence. The question is
this, do we wish to just be born in the world and carry on playing existing and limiting roles pre-ordained by a static notion of culture? Or do we wish, rather, to create our place in the world? My philosophy as Communication Strategist focuses on bringing out the stories that allow my clients to create a new place for themselves. As per my training and international professional experience, I have a deep understanding of the subtleties of culture, recognising the spaces between the lines that allow us to hack creatively so new possibilities are born, placing individuals and organisations ahead of
the game. I bring my scholarly expertise and affiliation with the University of Nottingham to the different aspects of my work as communication strategist:

Trainer, Mentor, Writer, Researcher, Story-Teller, Public Speaker, Workshop Facilitator.

My training in linguistics and literature as well as my experience as published writer have equipped me with tools to articulate stories powerfully, bringing out the dream elements of an organisation to pitch the story in a way that makes employees want to co-create this vision with the owners and directors, and makes its clients empathise with the journey.

I am particularly interested in working with individuals and organisations who/which position themselves as visionaries, game-changers, cultural catalysts and are committed to creating value that is as
intrinsic as it is extrinsic.

Switch on your Observation Skills - WORKSHOP by Nir Hindi
Limited Capacity seats available

Observation skills is one of the basic skill required in the innovation process. This practical workshop highlights the need for observation and listening skills. We are all being taught how to read, write and even how to behave socially; yet, education systems do not teach us how to see. We look but we don’t see and that is a difference.

Observation skills can be enhanced with focused viewing of original works of art, describing, and then interpreting findings. In this session, we focus on viewing original works of art, describing, and then interpreting findings.

Renaissance of Renaissance thinking- Presentation by Nir Hindi, Founder of TheArtian

In this session, “A Renaissance of Renaissance Thinking,” we advocate for the connection between artistic talent and business entrepreneurship, two areas that fuel each other and provide an opportunity for mutual learning. By revealing trends and upcoming changes in the world, we highlight the importance of being creative and having artistic skills. Using examples of leaders in the business world that have already capitalized on art and creativity, we raise questions such as: is it the balance between the right brain and the left brain that made this person or company successful? How can we accomplish this balance? Why should we do it? These questions help to initiate a change in paradigm.

Smarter Transportation Solutions for Nairobi, Kenya: Challenges and Opportunities

 This presentation will discuss the current state of transportation in Nairobi, the challenges with implementing state-of-the-art smarter transportation solutions, and opportunities for collecting new data sources that can inform transportation planning efforts. 

Like many other African cities, Nairobi is now grappling with the challenges of rapid urbanization. Kenya’s population has increased by 55% over the last decade, and this combined with significant rural-to-urban migration in Kenya has resulted in critical stress on Nairobi’s limited transportation infrastructure. To mitigate these transportation issues, Nairobi County Government has proposed a number of transportation solutions, including bus rapid transit and arterial expansions. The challenge here is the lack of adequate transportation data for investigating potential travel responses to such investments. There is currently no on-going data collection system nor periodic planning effort to investigate the travel behaviors of Nairobi residents. This significantly constrains the ability Nairobi transportation planners to investigate (via scenario analysis and forecasting) transportation solutions that will best address Nairobi’s multimodal transportation needs.

Winning in Africa: From Trading Posts to Ecosystems - BCG
Mostly ignored by multinationals since the 1980s, Africa is now receiving their attention and investment. Awareness of the Africa opportunity is one thing. Winning in Africa is another. The continent remains a dizzying collection of emerging markets, each with its own unique business environment, risk profile, and potential. Many companies have been operating in Africa for decades and have learned the hard lessons that await newcomers. BCG conducted an extensive case study of those successful companies in Africa and identified key success factors. The BCG author team, Stefano Niavas and Takeshi Oikawa will introduce these key success factors with lively case examples and exchange views with the participants from ALC.
