Organizers of business and entrepreneurship symposium dubbed Wealth Creation Conference, Sycamore Consult Limited says all preparations are through to host the much anticipated business symposium in the capital city, Lilongwe.
The conference to be held on August 31, 2022 at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) is set to bring together local and international business executives and entrepreneurs to share experiences on sustainable means of navigating through economic hardships and wealth creation ladder.
Speaking to Mining and Trade Review, the firm’s CEO Audrey Mwala hinted that the conference has been themed; “Mindset change” with a sole purpose to awaken many Malawians to diverse business opportunities currently at their disposal amidst economic crisis the country is going through.
Mwala stressed that the conference is critical as it has tried to bring together notable practical based business executives and seasoned entrepreneurs who will speak based on diverse experiences attained through years of running successful businesses.
Notable figures expected to speak at the conference include Jimmy Korea Mpatsa of Mpatsa Holdings Limited, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, Standard Bank of Malawi CEO Philip Madinga and seasoned entrepreneur Napoleon Dzombe.
She said: “The speakers are ready, I talked to them they are not only ready to but also excited to have the opportunity to share their experiences for the benefit of many people in Malawi. Malawi is not a poor country, there is no reason why Malawian should be poor. We need to have the right mindset of wealth creation. Everyone can become rich.”
“This conference is very crucial because it is about making a decision between living a life of poverty or a life of wealth. The steps to wealth creation will be laid bare, not by people that speak theory, people that write or just motivate other people without having the experience of being on the ground to implement, and go through the grind, but these people are talking from experience, sharing their moments of fear, doubt, pain confusion, discomfort and yet victory at the end
“The conference will tame the key challenge local business firms are facing, which is failing to think big and grow big. The conference will show how the speakers started and where they are today.”
