Kenyan’s were won over by She Leads Africa and their professional bootcamp the SheHive last weekend.  Over 4 days, She Leads Africa brought their SheHive to Kenya, where 100 Narobi women came together to learn, network and boost their careers.

This sold out bootcamp hosted speakers such as:

  • Bob Collymore – CEO of Safari.com
  • Hilda Moraa – Founder and former CEO of Weza Tele Ltd.
  • Helen Gichohi – MD Equity Group Foundation
  •  Shamim Ehsani – Managing Director of Tribe Hotel
  •  Wanjira Longauer – Host, Moments (Ebony Life TV)
  • Andreata Muforo – Investment Director at TLcom Capital Partners

True to SLA’s signature style, the bootcamp was educational yet informal – a safe space for women to learn critical skills in a casual and refreshing environment. At one point, participants were listening to prominent female business leaders; at another, they were taking part in a rap battle to explain why they were #MotherlandMoguls.

The event made a strong impression on social media with the #SheHiveNairobi hashtag trending across Kenya over the weekend. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. 80% of participants gave the event a 5/5 in terms of usefulness.

This event was proudly sponsored by Nairobi Garage and okayafrica.

The 2016 SheHive tour has already taken She Leads Africa to Abuja, Accra, NYC and Nairobi. The next stop is London (August 18th – 21st) which will be held in partnership with Facebook (Tickets here).
