Board Training in partnership with Board Academy Europe and Africa

About Board Academy

Board Academy Africa is a subsidiary of Board Academy, a multinational firm with headquarters in Munich, Germany. A global brand and facilitator of a top executive and non-executive peer2peer learning and networking hub with a strong footprint in Germany, Spain, the Middle East, Singapore, Turkey and South Africa. 

Given the board's level of responsibility, every member must have the skills and abilities they need to carry out their role. Management committees/boards should have or ensure that all their members receive the necessary induction, training, and ongoing support to discharge their duties effectively.

Not only do we provide Board Training, Development and Placement, but we also bridge global operating companies with international operating boards and board personalities to anticipate future business needs and enable the network to connect the right people.

Through Strategic African Women In Leadership (SAWIL)'s partnership with Board Academy Africa and in line with #SAWILVision2030, we seek to close the diversity and inclusion gap that exists in Corporate Africa. 

The Board Academy programme consists of the following modules:

  1. Human resources, communication and organisation

  2. Reporting, accounting and controlling

  3. Risk & compliance

  4. Legal

  5. Corporate finance, M&As, restructuring

  6. Strategy, innovation management, digitalization
