Lagos, Nigeria – September 12, 2023: The Aspire Coronation Trust (ACT)

Foundation is gearing up to host the highly-anticipated 7th ACT Foundation Breakfast

Dialogue (BFD) on October 5th, 2023, at the prestigious Lagos Oriental Hotel, Lekki

Expressway, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The ACT Foundation Breakfast Dialogue has become a marquee event, drawing

luminaries from diverse sectors, to tackle pivotal issues surrounding sustainable

development in Africa. This year, the event takes on even greater significance as it

zooms in on the transformative potential of Economic, Social, and Governance (ESG)

strategies in advancing sustainable development.

Themed ‘Advancing Sustainable Development in Africa: Unleashing the Power of

Environmental, Social, Governance Strategies for Impact, this year’s Breakfast

Dialogue aspires to bring together an eclectic mix of leaders representing various

sectors, all poised to engage in a deep dive into how ESG principles can be leveraged

to propel the sustainable development of organisations and, consequently, Africa’s

broader sustainable development agenda.

Osayi Allie, CEO of ACT Foundation, underscored the significance of this event,

remarking, “The 7th ACT Foundation Breakfast Dialogue promises to be a game-

changer, offering a unique platform for leaders in the public, private, and social sectors

to decode the immense potential that Economic, Social, and Governance principles

hold for organisations of various scales. Effective implementation of ESG practices by

African institutions can make a monumental contribution to achieving sustainable

development across the continent.”

The event’s keynote speaker, Oyeyimika Adeboye, Managing Director, West Africa,

Mondelez International, will take centre stage to share her profound insights on this

pivotal subject. She will be joined by an esteemed lineup of speakers, including Marilyn

Obaisa-Osula, Associate Director, ESG and Sustainability Services, KPMG; Dr.
