Bob Collymore, the CEO of Safaricom and a team of managers from the telecommunication giant visited Strathmore University on the 13th of March 2014. It was all pomp, color and dance at Strathmore when the team took time off to meet and greet with excited university students, giving them a one-on-one chance to chat with Safaricom’s top management. Mr. Collymore also met with the director of @iLabAfrica, Dr. Joseph Sevilla and other members of the Strathmore community, both staff and students.
Strathmore University is home to many Safaricom sponsored programs including the Safariom Academy and @iBizAfrica, the business incubator located on the 5th floor of the Student Centre. The safaricom team had the opportunity to tour these facilities, interacting freely with staff, students and members of the business incubator.
A team from the Fanikisha na M-shwari promotion was also in Strathmore doing the rounds among the student community to push the product.
