Uganda will on Feb. 20th at the Kampala Serena Hotel host a Strategic Leaders Summit themed, “Innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship development in times of uncertainties”.
Organized by Human Capital International (HCI), the summit seeks to create awareness among entrepreneurs, leaders, managers, academia and public officials to understand the strategies for taking charge and turning things around during times of uncertainties. This is in a bid to deal with the governance and entrepreneurial leadership challenges confronting Africa.
The event will host speakers including; Patrick Bitature, Ecobank Managing Director; Clement Doodoo, Msingi Africa CEO; Aggie Konde, to mention a few.
The summit will create a platform for participants to share experiences and recommended strategies for leading during uncertain times.
HCI Founder, Emmanuel Dei-Tumi, briefing the press, said, “The need for quality leadership mind-set and the collaborative input of civil society, youth groups and other corporate bodies in the effort to transform the fortunes of businesses, governance and institutions in Africa has become extremely crucial.”
“It is in this context that the Strategic Leaders’ Summit is focusing on how to galvanize entrepreneurs, leaders, managers and government to understand the strategies for taking charge and turning things around during times of uncertainties. This will ensure that our next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs become resourceful and key players in building our nations,” Emmanuel added.
The levels of quality leadership, innovation and creative thinking among Africans in the past were unparalleled, with the fight for political independence and economic emancipation. However, African nations seem to be losing all the post-independence verve and commitment and is increasingly falling prey to other foreign cultures, drifting off the cause of national development.
