WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

    MORE SESSION DETAILS

    With his trademark panache, Derreck Kayongo inspires and empowers with his courageous story of survival, social entrepreneurship and humanitarianism, and the life lessons he learned along the way. Derreck is the founder of the Global Soap Project, which recycles used hotel soap and redistributes it to impoverished populations around the world. In creating this global humanitarian initiative, he demonstrated that a simple, yet novel idea has the power to transform the lives of millions. From Ugandan refugee to successful entrepreneur and renowned human rights activist, Derreck inspires audiences to dream big as he shares his vision for harnessing the power of observation to identify issues and solve challenges in any community or organization. With palpable energy and enthusiasm, he brings his personal guiding principles, coined as S.E.L.F. – Service, Education, Leadership and Faith – to life in emotionally-packed presentations that linger long after his speech. Dynamic and empowering on stage, Derreck inspires a spirit of entrepreneurialism and creative problem-solving while spurring audiences to invent their own self-made motto of success so they can create tangible change in the world.
