Future Leaders

The AOW Future Leaders Initiative is a unique platform for IOCs, Independents, Geo Companies and NOCs to bring and engage their future leaders with AOW at a preferential rate.

Launched in 2018, The Future Leaders Initiative is a catalyst to engage the next generation of leaders in Africa's Oil and Gas sector, by allowing current leaders to bring their protégés to the Summit and expose them to the current trends facing our complexed industry.

The Future Leaders of our industry are critical to the next 20 years of the oil and gas sector. As we move out of a cyclical slump in the market, it is key we keep our most talented people. This element of the programme will support the brightest talents from IOCs, NOCs, Oil Field Service Companies, EPCs and Geoservice companies to attend all content throughout the week at a highly discounted rate.


  • Develop: Offer your high potential employees the opportunity to develop their leadership capability at the continent's most prestigious oil and gas Summit.
  • Support: your future leaders to address the business-central challenges they face in today's complex markets.
  • Exposure: Put your future leaders in a collaborative environment with top performing industry peers across the supply chain.
