Yutee Rone serves FASHION and brains at African energy week 2022

Yutee Rone shared glimpses of the four-day African energy week conference from the 18th to the 21st of October 2022. They held the 2022 African energy week in one of South Africa’s capital cities, Cape town.

We usually see Yutee Rone in her more popular element, fashion, but seeing her in the business element is simply giving. In her own words, during a visit to the YSL museum in Marrakesh,

“One of my most favourite thing while in Marrakesh (asides being a wedding guest) was visiting the Yves Saint Laurent museum. The museum, entirely devoted to the legendary fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent. Need I say more…. 𝐈 𝐟𝐞𝐥𝐭 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐚𝐭 𝐡𝐨𝐦𝐞 !”

A rundown of African Energy week by Yutee Rone

 We commonly spot her in several high fashion brands, like Valentino, Gucci, and her fashion line, Yutee rone. 

Besides the fashion and the aesthetic, the brand, Yutee Rone, is almost synonymous with travel. She gives travel bloggers a run for their money with luxurious trips to the most beautiful cities in the world. Although she has never shared her business savvy side of her until now. In her own words:

“I know I never showed this part of my life, business and love here but here’s 🥂to showing the strength in me and praying that in my little way, I encourage someone and be a part of the change and development of the world needs! While fashionably doing so 😀”

African Energy week as told by Utibe Rone, Director of UTM group

Exploring and investing in Africa’s energy future and balancing fossil fuel and renewables to address access to reliable power

As a director of a thriving oil and gas/energy company, having attended a few offshore technology conferences, relating it to energy transition to which gas is a cleaner entry, I understand the need for power generation and infrastructure development.

This conference was a collision of African countries, roundtable discussions with OPEC and African ministers, heads of delegations, keynote speakers from different oil and energy fields…

Awards… lifetime achievement etc with Nigeria being a lead as the winner of “National oil company of the year award and “Gas monetisation development of the year award”

There were too many many topics but to count a few… New take-off opportunities in a changing global environment and ways to attract new investments in under-explored areas were welcomed.
