Telling Kenyan Stories

Nairobi Business Leaders forum will be hosted by KQ Chairman Michael Joseph

The APA Apollo Group and Nairobi Business Forum have partnered to host Michael Joseph, Chairman, Kenya Airways and former Chairman and CEO of Safaricom to offer his insights to business success as the economy recovers from the Coronavirus pandemic and General election.

The free insightful session will take place on Wednesday 25 January 2023 at the Sarit Expo Centre, Westlands at 17:30.

“With the no lecture and no power point approach Michael will get the audience thinking,
engaged and presenting in a way everyone can relate to and learn from,” said Catherine
Karimi, CEO, APA Life Assurance Limited.

“All who will attend will walk away knowing they have learned something valuable for their business,” she added.

The move comes as the economy witnesses recovery according to the latest Purchasing Managers’ Index by Stanbic Bank Kenya.

The November 2022 index indicates that Kenyan businesses witnessed increased demand for their exports in the international market in November 2022.

The index found that the rise in export orders strengthened further from October figures, having increased in each month since April 2022.

At the same time, new order inflows received by Kenyan businesses rose in November, extending the current growth sequence to three months. The rate of increase accelerated from the previous survey period and was modest but slower than the long-run trend. Where rising new orders were recorded, survey panellists often cited new clients and improved cash flow.

Overall, output levels among Kenyan businesses expanded in November, following a slight contraction during October. As per the PMI survey, although minimal, the upturn was only the third recorded in 2022 so far. Panellists mainly linked the increase to a faster rise in new work and favourable weather. Sector data showed that growth was broad-based in November, led by construction and agriculture.
