Rick Steves

FX and CFD brokerage Deriv has hosted their top-performing affiliates in Africa at a conference in Kigali, Rwanda.

The conference, filled with networking opportunities, knowledge-sharing sessions, intimate roundtable discussions, and social engagements, allowed Deriv team members from all over the continent to meet with the affiliates from their respective countries.

A total of 100 top affiliates from Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, Botswana, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Namibia, Kenya, Ghana, Cameroon, and Uganda attended the 2-day conference.

“Conference gave us insight into how our partners can network and feed off each other”

Godfrey Zvenyika, Head of the Deriv Rwanda office, said: “The management and Africa Global Partnerships team planned and executed this event to absolute perfection. This conference gave us insight into how our partners can network and feed off each other, resulting in them performing even better. It was a total pleasure watching the interactions and networking during this conference.

“The success of this inaugural conference has inspired plans for future events. This is the first of many to come, and I believe the conferences can only get better. We are already looking forward to the next conference in February 2023 for the Francophone countries.”

Isabel Gambura, Country Manager at Deriv, commented: “The conference gave us an amazing opportunity to connect face-to-face and share experiences with our affiliates, people we have been partnering with for years. In fact, one of our top partners shared a very touching story about how our partnership had allowed her to lead an independent life. It was truly great to see how our programmes impact our partners’ lives.”

The event ended with a gala dinner to celebrate the achievements of all the conference attendees throughout their Deriv partnership.
