Fred Swaniker

The Ghanaian entrepreneur and leadership development expert was highlighted for his role in harnessing the potentials of young people across the continent. His profile was written by Ibrahim, a telecoms entrepreneur and chair of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.

“Fred understood that the key to success was not about leading the youth along a preordained path, but about allowing them to become authors of their own stories.

“That is what has inspired his educational initiatives: the African Leadership Academy, African Leadership Network and African Leadership University. Together, they hope to educate 3 million leaders of tomorrow. Fred has the passion, understanding and ability to take this great continent forward, through its young people.”
