It’s more than an event; it’s a strategic move to position our current and future leaders to not only meet but exceed the aspirations of Vision 2030.”
The forum’s theme, “Positioning Potential Business Leaders Towards Vision 2030,” encapsulates the essence of the gathering. It’s a clarion call for action and collaboration among Zimbabwe’s brightest minds.
Here’s what the forum aims to achieve:

2. Role of Business Leaders Towards National Development: It will highlight the pivotal role business leaders play in national development, inspiring a generation to take the helm and steer Zimbabwe towards prosperity.
3. Developing Strategic Partnerships Amongst Economic Players: By creating a synergy between diverse economic players, the forum will lay the groundwork for strategic partnerships that promise mutual growth and success.
4. Access to Financial Markets and Opportunities Across All Sectors of the Economy: A key focus will be on demystifying the financial markets, ensuring that opportunities are accessible to all sectors, and catalyzing a holistic economic upturn.
5. Creating Platforms of Engagement Between Government and Economic Players: The forum will bridge the gap between government and the private sector, fostering a dialogue that’s geared towards sustainable development.
6. Leveraging Strategy to Propel Business Leaders to a Higher Level of Economic Interests: It’s about leveraging strategic thinking to catapult business leaders into a realm where their economic interests align with the nation’s growth trajectory.
7. Positioning Business Leaders on Both Local and International Platforms: Finally, the forum will serve as a launchpad for Zimbabwean business leaders, positioning them not just on the local stage, but also on the international arena, showcasing their prowess and potential.
