Vusi Thembekwayo is in Kenya as a keynote speaker for the first-ever Marketers Summit hosted by the Marketing Society of Kenya (MSK).

It’s a Future Leadership Symposium that the Marketing Society of Kenya (MSK) is hosting for the first time.

The summit kicked off at Villa Rosa Kempinski Nairobi on Monday and is set to continue at Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort and Spa in Mombasa until the 24th of June 2022.


Registration is currently still ongoing on the Marketing Society of Kenya website at Ksh 60,000 per person.

Vusi Thembekwayo is a South African venture capitalist, an acclaimed business mogul, serial entrepreneur, author, and a celebrated global speaker.

He attended Benoni high school and later joined The University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of business Science (GIBS).


He has featured in Forbes and been on the cover of the entrepreneur magazine before he was 30 years old. He sold a research business he had built for 140 million rands, which is equivalent to over a billion Kenyan shillings.

Nevertheless, things took a different turn when he got to thirty, “When I got to thirty, I crashed; since my entire identity had always been framed, by being the young guy doing well, and I was not the young guy anymore,”

Vusi said.“Sometimes I wondered, am I the guy these people say I am?"

Before adding .“If you don’t believe there’s a price for this sweet paradise, just remind me to show you the scars,” Bob Dylan

His gift to the world is speaking life and elevating others. He prides on speaking at conferences and people leaving refreshed and rejuvenated. He lives by one mantra, "Live full. Die empty."

So he commits every day to complete his program for that day, exhausted from the effort required to leave out purpose. In one of his entrepreneurial nuggets, he gives three ways to identify a gap and pursue it in any business.

These include: Finding something people are willing to pay for, finding something that they need now, and finally having the money to pay for it.

He has been in the country from 18th June 2022 and bids Kenya bye on 26th of June.
