Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) has joined forces with the SOAR Africa to host an African Leadership and Entrepreneurship Summit that will be held from 4th to 6th of September at the Kasarani Indoor Arena, Nairobi.
The Leadership Summit will be spiced up as it will have Bishop TD Jakes, Econet Group Chairman, Strive Masiyiwa, Head of Facebook Africa, Nunu Ntshingilia, and KCB Group CEO and MD Joshua Oigara who will headline as some of the keynote speakers at the three-day event.
SOAR AFRICA, a premier leadership and entrepreneurship summit whose aim is to create a progressive and thought-provoking platform where leaders and entrepreneurs have conversations that inspire economic progress for the continent, will curate unique themes through renowned keynote speakers, panel discussions, networking forums, Fireside chats, and intimate breakout sessions.
“SOAR Africa creates a space where we champion the right leadership ingredients, share learning, transfer knowledge and mentorship, and this is because we believe that only by pulling together will we ensure no one is left behind,” said SOAR Africa Director Ms. Joy Wachira.
Mr. Oigara said that the summit is consistent with the Bank’s strategy on transformative partnership and he looks forward to being part of a deeply meaningful exchange of perspectives and ideas for Africa.
“The Leadership Summit will encourage senior and emerging leaders across industries in Africa to work together on ideas to promote close collaboration on addressing local and global challenges,” Mr. Oigara said.
“We are happy to partner with SOARS Africa to host the inaugural summit. We believe it will provide a unique platform to discuss key issues to enable sustainable transformative growth and entrepreneurship across the continent.”
Leaders from business, government, and academia, as well as key decision-makers from the public and private sector, will have the opportunity to discuss and learn about some critical challenges arising in the continent, as well as innovative case studies and strategies to fast-track entrepreneurship and sustainable growth in Africa.
SOAR Africa Summit’s vision is to congregate Africa’s top corporate, social and political leaders to address their most pressing challenges and how to fix them.
On 5th of September, the summit will have an exclusive (Fireside chat) Dinner and this will be followed by a full-day conference on the final day in Nairobi.
