Dr. Deanne De Vries
Author, Speaker, and Africa Advocate at


For 30+ years, Dr. Deanne De Vries, international best selling author of “Africa: Open for Business”, has been changing people’s and companies’ mindset about business in Africa as she opens the doors for entrepreneurs and companies to establish themselves in Africa by challenging outdated images and introducing them to AfriCAN: the can-do Continent.  This is helped along by her fluency in six languages.

As comfortable speaking at Madison Square Gardens and TEDx as she is interviewing Heads of State across Africa about political leadership for her PhD, or crossing on foot the South Sudan border with Uganda to understand the situation her truck drivers face daily, Deanne looks to understand the “why” of the on-the-ground reality so she can raise others up as well as introduce everyone to the ABCs of doing business in Africa and why now is the time to invest in this continent of opportunity.
