Creating empowered individuals capable of transforming themselves as well as their society by means of innovation and technology is just one of the many objectives of Coastech Empowerment Community Organization.
In line with that, Coastech empowerment team conducted a half-day event/training at Kenya Coast National Polytechnic (former MTTI) on the 17th of February 2018. The event concentrated mainly on educating and inspiring students about Techpreneurship and how they can use ICT in their respective fields e.g. business, education etc. Such was facilitated by external speakers.
The event kicked off with a brief introduction to Coastech Empowerment Community by one of the co-founders, Miss Shehnaz Abubakar. Mr. Usama Ali, the MC of the event then handed over the mic to the next speaker of the day. Mr. Zayyad Said, chairman and CEO of Intrasoft Technologies who gave an interesting talk on ICT careers. The knowledge he shared would indeed help immensely in the development of ICT within the community in Mombasa.
Then came Miss Magdalene Kamau, a free-lance writer, business mentor and a motivational Speaker. Miss Magdalene spoke a lot on techpreneurship/entrepreneurship and presented the subject in such an interesting manner that played a significant role in making the event a success.
The Mc’s wonderful way with words and a very personable approach simply made everyone feel relaxed and connected ready for the next speaker who was none other than Mr. Charles Msilanga, Certified speaker at Galaxy ventures, corporate MC, motivational Speaker and a mentor. Mr. Charles did what he does best by using his power of words to inspire, motivate and encourage the audience to create opportunities and make things happen rather than wait for things to happen.
The event then concluded with a wrap-up speech by Mr. Mukhtar Salim, co-founder of Coastech Empowerment Community followed by an ‘appreciation’ session where the different speakers and MC were gifted by the coastech empowerment team. And of course networking session would never miss in such an inspiring event where the speakers and attendees got to interact with each other.
