The firm has also announced that it would be giving out three awards on the day in its inaugural Tower Awards.
The event which holds at the Radisson Blu Anchorage has theme as Corporate Governance structure: A Pathway to Sustainability in Africa Aviation will host top notch captains of industry as well as policy makers and those around leadership in Africa to draw from their depth of knowledge, strategies to curb this challenge in running aviation business.
According to the host of the event and Chief Executive of Aviator’s Africa, Toni Ukachukwu, the plan is to get leaders across Africa together especially the political leadership to discuss on the teething challenges and proffer effective solutions that would stand the test of time.
Ukachukwu said that the theme of the event is apt because as it stands, there is quite little or no corporate governance in African aviation and the event is set to bring it to the fore.
“ Corporate Governance is a challenge but we have not been paying a lot of attention to it but in our 3rd Leadership CEO’s Forum we intend to horn in on it and get a positive direction and use our platform to project whatever solutions we come up with. So it’s a platform open for stakeholders especially leaders to discuss the problem and look for a way forward,” he said.
He also stated that without the leadership being involved, it becomes difficult to achieve some of the set out goals for the industry, explaining that things like SAATM would not be where it is now without the willingness of the political leadership.
On the award, Ukachukwu explained that for an intro, Aviators Africa would give out three awards, one to an individual another to a brand and then recognize inductees.
He said the first award would be for change makers in the industry while the second will celebrate a brand and the third recognizes a male and female to be inducted in the hall of fame according to him, there would be voting for the brand via its website www.theaviatorsafrica.com and opens September 1, 2021 for two weeks.
Explaining the choice of male and female inductees, Ukachukwu said it was aimed at creating balance as there were also women in the industry that have worked assiduously and deserve the recognition.
