Deputy British High Commissioner Susie Kitchens was among the speakers at yesterday’s British Chamber of Commerce Kenya (BCCK) Growth and Talent Management B2B Forum launch at Nairobi’s Intercontinental Hotel.
The forum provided an opportunity to share the six-step framework successful business owners use to scale up their companies and how business managers and owners can implement some of the key strategies in their own enterprises. These included leadership management, finding and identifying the right people to work for you and the mastery of entrepreneurship.
During opening remarks by Anne Mutahi, SME advisor to the Office of the President in Kenya, revealed how SMEs (Small or Medium-sized Enterprise) can have linkages with bigger corporates regionally.
This theme was continued by the British Deputy High Commissioner who agreed that linking big companies to SMEs to mentor core management skills can be transformational, and that this approach is supported by UKaid through the Global Innovation Fund.
Yamini Virani, Celebrus Business Strategies CEO shared some advice on business growth, telling attendees that entrepreneurship requires a lot of mastery and how if you’re not thinking of growth, none of your employees are either.
The forum also heard from Angie Garcia, CEO of Garcia Forner Consulting Ltd, who explained how finding and identifying the right people to work for you depends on the individual’s skills, attitude and experience.
