I am happy to announce that I have accepted to take up two new professional volunteering roles. For the next two years, I will be serving as a Member of the Resource Mobilization and Partnerships Committee of the Public Relations Society of Kenya (PRSK) – the professional body for public relations and communication management in Kenya. I have also been appointed an Advisor at Communipad Solutions, a Kenyan tech-based social enterprise start-up that helps institutions and associations to manage and engage their members from across the globe.
At PRSK, my role with other colleagues will be to execute a broad mandate of policy formulation and review; development, monitoring and evaluation of strategic interventions; and oversight of the Council on matters about resource mobilization and partnerships development. On the other hand, for Communipad, based on my expertise and experience, I will provide insights and guidance on the key strategic areas of business development, marketing and communications, community outreach and networking.
My motivation to take up these roles is driven by a desire to contribute my knowledge, skills and experiences for the development of the organizations. I have a particular interest in the sectors they work in, being a public relations and communication management practitioner and an active community builder, as they both present great potentials for growth and impact especially for young professionals like myself.
I also hope that while contributing to their causes, I will also draw from the wisdom and experiences of my colleagues there for both personal and professional development. Furthermore, through these engagements, I seek to inspire other young people not to shy away from taking up leadership roles of any nature and to seriously consider volunteerism as a path to personal improvement.
For these opportunities, I have given the assurance that I will endeavour to give my best at all times in the discharge of my duties in the assigned roles. Godspeed!
