“The commitment from our District Governor Patrick Obath was to ensure that the essence and objectives of the conference were maintained,’’ the Chairman of the 96th conference, Paul Kasimu, said.

Standard Group will live stream key segments of the conference on its social media platforms.

Speakers during the conference include a welcome address by Laikipia County Governor Nderitu Muriithi and a presentation on thriving during disruption by University of Nairobi don, Prof. Bitange Ndemo.

Others include Kenya Air Force Commander Major-General Francis Ogola and Paul Polman, the former Unilever Chief Executive Officer and now Chairman of IMAGINE; a social venture accelerating business leadership to achieve the global goals.
