We believe a beneficial relationship between British and African business, as well as consumers and governments is crucial to prosperity in Africa.

Through corporate membership of the Royal African Society business people and entrepreneurs have an opportunity to learn and meet succesful business people and leaders making an impact on the continent.

Our business breakfasts provide a forum to meet, discuss and network with like-minded individuals and organisations - and opportunities for building relationships and recognition both in Africa and the UK.

Our links and knowledge of people, culture and business in Africa make us an invaluable source of contacts, networks and information for businesses seeking to expand, understand or increase their presence in Africa or build stronger relationships with their African consumers in the UK and abroad.

We nurture and welcome opportunities for partnership and collaboration with businesses in Africa and in the UK; find out about joining us as a corporate member today.
