Also speaking at the same event, Honourable Dr. David R. Namwandi, Founder and Chairperson of the Governing Council advised all entrepreneurs, to mention but a few, to write their visions physically somewhere where they can read it and remind themselves about why they always wanted to do it and to never lose sight of their visions because of external pressures. He also indicated that for entrepreneurs, self-motivation was always key.
