Jeremy Rifkin will be sharing his ideas and vision of the future with 800 delegates at the 2015 AFRICA CEO FORUM, including almost 500 top African CEOs.

Can he convince participants that the emergence of a new economic model based on “less financial capital and more human capital” is an exciting opportunity for the African continent? In a paradigm where consumers become producers, what changes will Africa’s private sector have to make? These questions will all be answered on 16 March in Geneva.
