2023 Advisory Committee

AOW: Investing in African Energy is evolving and expanding its Advisory Committee! Our 2024 team of advisors will gather leading public and private sector leaders from across the energy spectrum to give our community a true voice in shaping AOW’s agenda and purpose.

The development of our cross-disciplinary Advisory Committee allows us to identify the goals and ambitions of governments, investors and business in Africa and to shape and develop a programme to further achieve their objectives across the continent – acting as a catalyst to advance partnerships and investment at this critical time for the African energy industry.

Stay tuned for updates in 2024!

Africa Oil Week 2023’s advisory committee members:


Hear What the 2022 Committee Had To Say
AOW is an important moment in Perenco's yearly timeline. It is one of the few conferences we decided to participate in. But as we are more actors than followers,  I'd prefer to sit on the advisory committee and help the conference to be a success.
Benoît de la Fouchardière Group General Manager, Perenco
I accepted the opportunity to join the advisory committee because I saw a unique opportunity to contribute to and shape the discourse regarding the continent's oil and gas industry. Especially considering the profound emerging challenges facing many African oil-producing countries due to the energy transition in particular.
Kadijah Amoah CEO, Aker Energy Ghana
