AFFORD’s 18th annual African Diaspora & Development Day (AD3) took place on Friday 7th July 2018 at Chatham House: The Royal Institute of International Affairs. This years theme ‘From locally known to global brands – Where are all the global African brands?’ focused on the scalability of African businesses. We would like to say a big thank you to Chatham House, our speakers, guests and all who assisted in making AFFORD’s 18th annual African Diaspora & Development Day (AD3) such a wonderful and interesting event. The line-up for the event included AFFORD Chair, Mr Ade Adaramy and four key speakers: Mr Henry Thompson from Chatham House, Ms Rubelyn Alcantara from Uhusiano Capital, Ms Pumela Salela from Brand South Africa and Mr Paul Asquith from AFFORD.
