    18th Annual Indaba Evening - October 31, 2019 - evening
    This is the premier African business networking event on the Canadian calendar featuring a who's who of senior business executives and government officials active, or interested, in Africa. Our keynote speaker for 2019 is Magatte Wade. Ms. Wade is passionate about entrepreneurship and creating high-end retail brands based on diverse African traditions that change the perception of Africa. She was born in Senegal, educated in France, and launched her entrepreneurial career in San Francisco. Ms. Wade is the founder and CEO of Tiossan, a high-end skin care products line, founder of Adina World Beverages, and an internationally recognized entrepreneur, business author and lecturer.

    Our Indaba evening features a high-level networking reception with an informal wine tasting and incredible African cuisine (food stations and hand-passed selections) and an authentic African sculpture and art market. The evening will be a celebration of our 25th anniversary, a combination of fun, food and excellent networking opportunities with leading business and community leaders active in Africa.
