Becoming an Advisor

At Pengo Insight, we've built a network of Advisors that provide our clients with specific expertise, providing compelling insight into a variety of industry related topics.

    Once we have approved your application and your advisor profile is live on our platform, we encourage you to make use of your social networks to drive traffic to your profile on Pengo Insight by sharing and publishing content around your area of expertise.

What are the qualifications?

We recruit advisors with intimate knowledge and expertise on the African continent. We rigorously vet each advisor based on their specific expertise to ensure we curate and build a network that provides our clients with the fastest, most efficient route to answering their most pressing business questions. Once an Advisor joins our network, their profile will be made live and searchable by all approved clients and users. Our network includes current and former senior executives as well as uniquely talented changemakers who are transforming industries in corporate and entrepreneurial environments.

If you are interested in contributing to closing the knowledge gap in Africa by sharing your knowledge, please make sure to apply to be an Advisor.
