KCB Bank has reaffirmed its support towards the growth for better leadership and entrepreneurship in the continent by sponsoring the upcoming SOAR Africa Leadership and Entrepreneurship Summit that will be held from 4th to 6th September at the Kasarani Indoor Arena.

SOAR Africa is 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.

SOAR AFRICA will curate unique themes through renowned keynote speakers, panel discussions, networking forums and intimate breakout sessions.

Bishop TD Jakes, Econet Group Chairman Strive Masiyiwa, Head of Facebook Africa Nunu Ntshingilia, and KCB Group CEO and MD Joshua Oigara are some of the keynote speakers at the three-day event.

“We are happy to be platinum sponsors to SOAR Africa inaugural summit. We believe it will provide a unique platform to discuss key issues to enable sustainable transformative growth in leadership  and entrepreneurship across the continent,” said Samuel Makome, KCB Group COO.

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.

Other SOAR Africa Leadership and Entrepreneurship Summit sponsors include Safaricom, Kempinsky, Standard Group and Mookh.

According to SOAR Africa director Joy Wachira, the event will create a space where we champion the right leadership ingredients, share learning, transfer knowledge and mentorship.

TD Jakes is the founder and senior pastor of The Potter’s House, a non-denominational megachurch in the US. He is also an author.

Masiyiwa, a Zimbabwean who resides in London, is one of the 20 african dollar billionaires according to Forbes. He is the founder of telecommunications conglomerate Econet and is worth approximately Ksh 237 billion. His firm was responsible for Kwese TV, but the telco has shut down its media arm.

Bishop T.D. Jakes and Masiyiwa are not new to Kenyan audiences as they are also part of the Global Leadership Summit which also hosts an event in Kenya annually.

Oigara said: ““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.”
