MLC Overview

The Made-In-Africa Leadership Conference (MLC) is an annual gathering of African business owners and business leaders, Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) & Managing Directors (MDs), Owners of small and large businesses in Africa, the Diasporan Community who wish to return to Africa to do business and Executive Teams of organizations in Africa.

Our theory of change at BCA is that, a majority of leaders of organizations and institutions in Africa will be made aware of and given equitable access to the transformative services of knowledge-sharing and executive coaching. As leaders regularly access these services, they will be enabled to make optimal decisions; their organizations will be better placed to achieve their goals/visions; their communities will experience improved economic and social development; human development in Africa will benefit subsequently.

Why We Convene

To encourage and foster leadership growth among African leaders

While many are born with leadership tendencies, it takes conscious efforts to mold people into the right kind of leaders who exert the right influence and leave positive legacies. MLC offers the opportunity for leaders to unlearn, learn, re-learn, reflect and study from the experiences of people, both good and bad.

To spur intra-Africa trade and collaboration

The World Economic Forum has projected that The AfCFTA implementation, which started in January 2021, has the potential to increase intra-African trade from its current 18% of total trade to 50% by 2030 with the potential to lift 30 million people out of extreme poverty. However, achieving its full potential depends on putting in place significant policy reforms and trade facilitation measures. MLC brings together ambitious and daring Africans who are ready to take new routes through partnerships and collaborations to lift 30 million people and more out of poverty.

To increase productivity and production of goods and services in Africa

All of the resources that African leaders need to grow their organizations and institutions can be found in Africa. At MLC we meet and exchange ideas, learn from and challenge each other, and build the foundation for future business and alliances.

Esther Lehmann-Sow

Book Coach

My great passion is to come alongside talented and engaged women and men and create a growth-accelerating environment for themselves and their stakeholders.


I am an accredited Organizational Coach, ICF Associate Certified Coach and certified administrator of the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI). I have delivered extensive leadership coaching for both individuals, teams and groups in English and French. I am experienced in supporting organisations achieve their goals by providing advisory services and facilitating learning events (training, workshops, retreats…), both through face-to-face and online forums.


My work focuses on supporting leaders of international organisations in growing their talented women and men in a holistic manner. Many of my clients are working for mission-based, Pro-African organizations and operate in complex, high pressure environments. Staying productive and authentic in such settings while growing personally and professionally is a recuring challenge for my clients and one I am in a position to help them meet with confidence.


My career journey from junior contractor to global director in one of the world’s largest international humanitarian organisations (World Vision International), allows me to understand critical shifts that need to happen as employees move from individual contributor to manager, to leading other managers and, eventually, to leading through influence. Shifting perspectives, choosing what resources to draw from, seeing the wider system, dealing with organizational politics, thinking strategically while ensuring operational quality, dealing with different personalities, and producing results under pressure are complex demands with which I’m very familiar. I have supported my clients through challenges like these to successful outcomes.   


My background as a leader in Europe, Sub Sahara Africa and across continents qualifies me to help managers operating at strategic levels not to lose sight of operational realities. As managers become leaders, I encourage them to move from achieving results through direct management to achieving results through empowerment, delegation, influence and accountability. I understand the value of boards and partnerships, and work with leaders to identify ways that create, nurture, and leverage their collaborative relationships for mutual benefit.


Changing contexts, be they organizational, political, social or context-related require adaptability. I am experienced at coming alongside leaders to help them keep up with moving priorities and find appropriate responses during crisis situations. I train them to manage their and their team’s stress levels, to adapt to the new reality and to provide leadership that allows their team to emerge from the crisis stronger.


Having evolved as a female leader in a male dominated environment, I am committed to supporting organizations in promoting gender equity. Offering coaching as safe space and in a relationship of trust, puts women at ease to prepare for and adjust to the next level of their career. Frequently in coaching women in emerging demographics, we deal with self-imposed or learned gender-based limitations which can undermine confidence and compromise positive risk-taking. Gender equity means working with managers on deep systemic issues, to challenge biases and create a more inclusive work-place culture that fully values the potential of all members of the organization.


Throughout my career I have navigated the interplay of work and family life: raising three children, managing multiple moves, and adapting to new contexts. This personal experience offers a strong connection point with many clients who aim to expand their professional experience while honouring their commitments to their family. Exploring creative ways to rise to these challenges and finding new perspectives on the standards to which we hold ourselves accountable has produced transformative, empowering, and actionable insights for my clients.


I’m a German citizen who has lived and worked cross-culturally most of her life. I have a deep knowledge of West and Central Africa and have worked with colleagues and clients across all continents.

I understand the great potential diversity offers and the complexity it can create for individuals and organizations. I help people to increase their self-awareness, invite them to be curious and walk with them as they learn to navigate diversity with authenticity, insight, and skill. I also offer assessments of intercultural competencies to individuals and groups with a view to growing those competencies to support the realization of personal and organizational goals.


I enjoy coming alongside talented and motivated women and men who want to grow, as people and at work, to live an impactful life in this world.


If you’d like to know more about me, I invite you to visit my LinkedIn page and my website.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Her approach:
When coaching business executives, Flora use a mix of clear goal setting and a collaborative approach. She helps them define their goals, understand their current situation, explore different strategies, and commit to a plan. At the same time, working with them to discover what really makes them happy, find a balance between work and life, and adapt to their unique needs. It’s like creating a roadmap for success while also making sure they’re fulfilled and enjoying the journey. Flora is a pragmatic result-oriented coach who gains a lot of satisfaction from watching her coaches grow and excel.

Change is inevitable in life and today the speed of change accelerates daily, through coaching you can take a step back and work through that change. Flora firmly believes situations are like the iceberg, we only see 10% and we are not sure what lies below it. Coaching raises our awareness to what lies below, and if we have the courage to allow ourselves to be in the unknown, it is only then that a major shift happens.
