Conferences and Business Events:

African Bankers Awards 2008 - Present

Christopher Hartland-Peel has been a judge for the The African Banker Awards since 2008.

The African Bankers Awards is a landmark annual event for African banking that takes place during the African Development Bank annual meetings. Organised by African Banker magazine and IC Events, the African Banker Awards celebrates excellence and best practices in African banking. It is designed to recognise the reforms, rapid modernisation, consolidation, integration and expansion of Africa's banking and financial system.

The judging panel for the African Banker Awards is made up of renowned individuals chosen for their expertise in the African banking industry. They are fully independent and therefore provide the programme with its rigour and robustness. The judges receive no personal or financial benefit from their participation and play their role purely to contribute towards acknowledging the highfliers in the African banking industry.
