The National Storytelling Conference is a platform for entrepreneurs and professionals to come together and explore different areas of collaborations and share experiences. We want to create a future-proof for entrepreneurship ecosystem in the country.

The main aim for the conference is to provide an environment for building collaborations as well as sharing experiences.

It is my hope that attendees will be able to share experiences and possibly collaborate on different ventures. It is also my hope that we will be able to discuss areas of interest with each other, share common challenges and possibly come up with solutions to these issues.

Is this conference a one-time thing or should we expect more like this?

As I mentioned, this is the premiere conference, so we will definitely hold more in the future.

The panel presenting today is a highly experienced one, drawn from different sectors. I carefully selected them because of their prowess in their respective fields, hoping that they will inspire other attendees with their experiences. As I said, this is a platform for sharing ideas, so I am glad that we get to hear from their wealth of knowledge.
