With a desire to play a part in the new era of a burgeoning Sub-Saharan region, entrepreneurs and professionals are returning home in droves.

The key ingredient that many attribute their successful move home to, is their network.

#DestinationAfrica provides you with an intimate platform to build yours.

You are invited to join an audience of high calibre professionals working in banking and finance, energy, technology, marketing, and professional services within London’s Square Mile.

Set in the heart of London’s financial district, situated just a few minutes from Moorgate station, the Honourable Artillery Company (The HAC) provides the perfect setting for the next event in our series of evenings purposed for the fostering of new connections with the intent of future collaborations in the Sub-Saharan region.

The evening will include a relaxed talk and Q&A with Rashida Abdulai, CEO, Strand Sahara, a pan-African online legal service which leverages technology to provide easily accessible, world-class commercial and corporate legal support to small and medium-sized enterprises operating in sub-Saharan Africa.

Formerly a senior associate in the international arbitration practice at Hogan Lovells, Rashida has over nine years’ experience representing some of the world’s largest corporations.
