ABOUT

Membership Benefits

The CEO Business Club inherits a rich 30-year history of business networking and relationship building, deal making and investing. Allan Hamond, the founder of the Friday Club and a veteran of business networking in South Africa, Dr. Jeh Shyan Wong from Malaysia, a Singapore venture capitalist/private equity veteran investor, along with several business-people from various African countries saw the need during Covid 19 lock down to establish a Pan Africa business network that transcends national and continental  boundaries.  

Our mission is inspired by our history, namely, empowering and connecting business leaders across Africa and the World. 

We have a vision of establishing the most prevalent Pan-African ecosystem for accelerating business networking and trusted relationship building, deal making and investing.

The CEO Business Club offers an enabling environment for CEOs dedicated to improving the quality and profitability of their companies through quality relationships, opportunities and personal growth.

CEO’s and candidate CEOs face unique challenges in today’s business environment. To name a few, customer behavior patterns are changing, new market trends emerge, economic activities are down, consumer spending is down, competition is rife, marketing budgets are cut, and government policy and restrictions are not helping.

Being the CEO is a lonely job, with little support from stakeholders. VUCA factors challenge the abilities of CEO’s and aspiring CEOs to their limit.
