Two weeks ago on Wednesday, 28th February 2018, the GMC Kenya National Final took place at the Metta Offices, at 14 Riverside Drive.

It was a gruelling day for the 37 participants representing the final 8 teams. We’ve not seen this level of intense competition in the previous 3 finals and the mental exhaustion at the end of the day was visible!

As the team captains, suited and booted, wished each other in the morning, “may the best team win” became the day’s theme. The company they were going to run was in distress and global macroeconomic factors were far from being in their favour. This one needed the subtle art of war in balancing operations, HR, marketing, outsourcing and financing – not easy on a day to day basis and even harder with all the time pressure of the day.

It would transpire that a team from Kenyatta University would make it a hat trick for the institution, specifically the School of Economics. The Oligarchs were crowned National Champions and the team lead by Sian Odhiambo will now represent Kenya at the International Finals in Dubai in April 2018.

The verified results in the final round of the 4th edition of the Global Management Challenge in Kenya are:

  1. The Oligarchs
  2. Alphafont
  3. Escobar
  4. Versatile
  5. Team Jabali
  6. Daysam
  7. Dubz
  8. Le Breakfast Buddies

We are now busy preparing the team for travel to Dubai and continue to request for your support – we can give your brand visibility in 30 countries through the 3 day event in April – speak to us!

With the warmest of wishes,

Asim, Ravi & the entire GMC Kenya Team
