Global Keynote Speaker and one of Africa’s leading Futurists, Kwame A.A Opoku has been named among the 100 Most Outstanding Leaders of Tomorrow by the St. Gallen Symposium in Switzerland.
Leaders of Tomorrow are a carefully selected, global community of the most promising young talents. Each year, 100 academics, politicians, entrepreneurs and professionals around 30 years or younger are invited to challenge, debate, and inspire at the St. Gallen Symposium. By questioning the status quo and representing the voices of the next generation, the Leaders of Tomorrow are at the very heart of the St. Gallen Symposium.
Leaders of Tomorrow qualify based on their professional or academic merit through a strict hand-selection process. After the symposium, they join the Leaders of Tomorrow Alumni Community counting over 2000 members worldwide.
The St. Gallen Symposium is a global gathering of Leaders of Today and Leaders of Tomorrow that takes place annually in May at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. It is organised by the International Students’ Committee (ISC), a team of students from the university. Past speakers at the Symposium has included Jack Ma, Founder, Alibaba, Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media, amongst others.
The honor comes less than 5 months after he was named the African Youth of the Year (Male) at the 2017 Africa Youth Awards. Kwame A.A Opoku is a Futurist, Global Business Keynote Speaker, 2x Tedx Speaker, Brand Architect, Serial Entrepreneur, Social Media/Digital Marketer and the Founder of Institute of Future Learning and the Future Governance Forum.
