Be a Disruptor;Defying the status quo!Attend this forum organised by Young Achievers Network in Nairobi County

“This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.” — Robert Kennedy.

Today’s youth are  socially responsible men and women of the millennial generation which, according to a Deloitte human capital trends report, will constitute 75% of the workforce by 2025. This generation is poised to be the future disruptors of economies.

While the youth of today have the potential to create a world unimaginable in the future, this generation faces challenges unlike any before it.

To overcome this,Young Achievers Network has organised a Cocktail whose theme is “Be a Disruptor;Challenging the status quo” where several topics will be discussed which seek to empower the youth.

The event will be held on the 29th April, 5PM – 8 PM. The venue is Agro House, Tom Mboya Street, Nairobi. It is next to Nazarene University Town Campus.

““One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. Every society has its protectors of status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.” — Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
