Utalii explains role in Global Entrepreneurship Summit

By Philip Mwakio | August 17th 2015

Kenya Utalii College (KUC) played a key role in the success of the recent Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in Nairobi.

Chief Principal Kenneth Ombongi said the college trained more than 800 participants from diverse service sectors who were directly and indirectly handling various aspects of the visit.

"Prior to the summit, the institution also played a leading role in the Pre-GES summit expo held at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) between July 22 and July 24, 2015 and which was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta," he said.

The institution also provided 50 students to the national GES secretariat who served as ushers throughout the event.

 "They formed part of the group that underwent rigorous training in different courses, Cultural Awareness, Destination Attractions, Airport Protocol, Government Protocol, Dignity, Confidence and Patriotism, Interpersonal Skills and Restaurant Etiquette," Dr Ombongi explained.

At the same time, KUC is preparing to host the EUHOFA Congress slated for November, 2016.

The Euhofa International is a prestigious association of hotel school directors and deans of hospitality colleges and universities who work continuously to ensure the highest quality of education in their institutions.
