Speaker(s) Leif Sjoblom, Professor of Financial Management, IMD

Professor Sjöblom is an expert in Financial Management, especially performance measurement and shareholder value creation. With 15+ years of experience with business in Africa, Leif has also been assigned as an Expedition Leader to sub-Saharan Africa, namely Kenya, within Executive MBA program. This topic will lie in the core of the meeting in Moscow.

Africa has been growing significantly faster than the rest of the world for the last 15 years, and will continue to grow for many more years. The population of 1 billion consumers, albeit low income, represent a significant business opportunity.

The session is about doing business in Africa, especially with the emerging consumer who lives on $1-2 per day. We will cover the general business environment (for those who don’t know Africa well), the multinational perspective, and the perspective of small local entrepreneurs.
