PRESS RELEASE

High Performance Leadership seminar

SOS

For the first time in Tanzania, Mikono Speakers proudly brings to you the High Performance Leadership seminar by international leadership gurus and success coaches, Brian Tracy from the USA and Azim Jamal from Canada.

This unique seminar that brings together two of the world’s best known speakers is a unique opportunity for Tanzanians to learn and refine their leadership skills for enhanced business and organisational performance. The one-day seminar will be held at the iconic Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre in Dar Es Salaam on 13th June 2014.

Speaking about the importance of this seminar to the Tanzanian society, the Managing Director of Mikono Speakers, Mr Deogratius Kilawe highlighted the absence of indigenous Tanzanians in leadership positions in the private sector.

“If you look at the biggest companies and organisations here in Tanzania, from mining to telecommunications, hospitality to financial services – everywhere you look – you see very few native Tanzanians in the top echelons of power in those organisations. Only 4% of CEOs in our biggest companies are Tanzanians; 96% are foreigners.

This is a situation that needs to change if Tanzanians are truly going to control their own economy and development destiny,” Mr Kilawe noted. “Mikono Speakers organising this seminar is just one step towards transforming Tanzanians into better leaders.

By having this seminar by trainers who have worked with the biggest companies in the world, we hope Tanzanians can learn the same skills used by these successful entities in order to improve their performance in businesses, in public service and in society,” added Mr Kilawe.

The seminar primarily targets individuals in leadership positions in private sector, public sector and civil society organisations, such as top management in companies and public corporations, senior government officials, members of parliament, academicians and persons in similar positions.

It is expected that senior management and decision-makers in most of the big corporations, multinationals and fast-growing SMEs in the country in addition to top officials from Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and civil society organisations will attend this event. Participation is also encouraged from the general public – anyone with interest in leadership is most welcome to attend.
