The Business summit started 10 am sharp, with registration, networking and people energizing themselves with tea and coffee in preparation of the eventful day ahead. To kick start the Business Summit everyone gave a brief introduction of their occupation and who they were, there was an array of professions Introduced during this part, from builders to barristers. Not only was there a variation between professions but the locations people had travelled from was also widespread. Delegates who travelled from nearby north London to participants who travelled all the way from Nigeria. The Core theme was inward investment for Africa by Africans. This included Health and gender Infrasture as well as the all-important Wealth creation.

The Summit was led by GBP’s founder Sam Onigbanjo, who welcomed the speakers and commenced the event. Sam created GBP Business club as a platform to attract Senior level Professionals interested in transitioning to Investors/Business owners. The Social focus of the club is to increase the internal circulation of wealth within the African community.
The first speaker for the event was the Global head of equality and diversity for the British Council, Dr Fiona Bartel-Elis, OBE. Fiona, made an official welcome speech on behalf of the British council and went on to engage the audience with her speech on the importance of women in Africa and how women play a crucial role in building the continent of Africa. She drew inspiration from her own story as a woman with Ghanaian heritage. Her presentation fundamentally demonstrated the pivotal role African woman could play and have played towards the progression of Africa.

The second speaker Otunba (Dr) Wanle Akinbobye, the founder of La Campagne Tropicana, gave attention to what Africa can offer and his vision for the continent building. He demonstrated the potential of Africa by giving examples of his own business ventures within the security,tourism and entertainment sectors in Africa.

Dr Monica Alabi, followed Otunba with an energetic speech, which brought awareness to the amount of money Africans were spending on medical tourism which helps sustain foreign economies and depletes African resources. Dr Alabi, highlighted the opportunity in the health industry and opportunites to invest, create employment and huge returns on investment
