Since September 11, 2001; the world has never been the same either in terms of how people travel across the globe, do business or communicate with one another. In the wake of the attack that came at a period when there was expansion and increasing levels of economic and political integration among previously inward looking countries there has been several measures taken which has undermined global economic integration. The most affected continent is Africa.

Terror and pains have been unleashed on the civilized world under the guise of promoting one religion or the other. One religion that has allegedly been fingered in wrecking havoc on modern civilization and business has been Islam. This has generated a lot of questions and concerns whether Islam supports business or not, whether it is against profit making or otherwise and if violence has been the hallmark of Islam.

Prof. Akintola would shed more light on these pertinent issues while at the same time stressing that Islam does not promote violence but peace. We hope you will honor us with your participation in our flagship luncheon roundtable. We are confident that you will find that the event offers both a stimulating and informative discussion about Islam, profit, business and violence.
