Vincent Otumbo

Keynote Speaker, Coach, Mentor, and Trainer
"In my confusion and struggle to find my true identity, I met a Mentor who guided me on how to find clarity in my purpose, passion, profession, vocation, and mission. This kind of clarity led me into developing a seven-module personal development program – The Personal Mastery Program and ultimately, co-founding Sav Skills Limited to offer Training, Coaching and Mentorship." Everyone desires to be a great leader, but not everyone chooses to be a leader. Otumbo believes in leadership at every level of life. This includes family, relationships, organizational growth, and development. In his view, leadership is a choice and has to be an intentional and deliberate journey for those who pursue it. Towards leadership growth, Otumbo develops tailored training programs to meet individual and organizational objectives.
