Leadership is everything. The difference between ideas, organizations and countries that fail and those that serve the needs of their people is down to leadership.
Being part of YELP has enabled me to learn from some of the most brilliant social innovators in East Africa and continues to fuel my passion to be and do better as a leader and entrepreneur. It is an honor.
