Augustine Blay, the President of Lead One Africa will be delivering a speech at a Forum for Peace and Development in Africa organized by the Prestigious Universal Peace Federation. The forum will take place on November 12th, 2015 at the Washington Times.
The speech by the President of Lead One Africa, will focus on four (4)main points:
- Factors that are responsible for the political and economical failures of African countries. The issue in Africa has never been about sustainability. Countries such as Nigeria, Congo, Egypt, Ghana, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, and others have proven their ability to sustain these failures and underdevelopments for decades and centuries.
- African countries are not poor because of their geographies or cultures, or because their leaders do not know which policies will enrich their citizens. To the contrary, African countries make policy decisions knowing very well the impact on the people but choose the options that enrich the few to the detriment of the population.
- Leaders are not born they are made. One of the key impediment of sustainable development is the failure to build leadership capacity of the next generation. Only 6% of Africans graduate from college. A very large proportion of African economies are therefore managed and lead by many who have not received formal leadership and managerial training.
- The advancement of technology, social media, and mobile phones have the potential of breaking the mold of the traditional African leadership styles. Africans may be able to escape the vicious cycle of underdevelopment into a new cycle of progressive development.
There will be speeches by other recognized Professionals who are actively working towards the development of Africa.
The forum will be held on Thursday November 12, 2015 at the The Washington Times, NE, Washington, DC, from 2 pm to 4pm.
Lead One Africa is a non-profit corporation focused on improving the achievement levels of African migrants through effective mentoring. Lead One Africa also works towards developing leadership skills in students in Sub Sahara Africa.
