Okello Sam Speaking Engagements
Corporations, schools, religious institutes and other interested parties can book Okello Sam for motivational speeches, team building activities through drum and dance, and musical performances.
Okello Kelo Sam is a motivating example of the power of human drive and positive attitude. Sam finds hope and humor even at the brink of death, and his presentation motivates participants to discover what drives their own passions. Beginning with the emotional drive north where he began Hope North, Okello punctuates his memorable story with original music, and inspiring messages for all of us, so that listeners will be inspired to feel good by doing good. And through his own drive, he will inspire listeners to discover what drives them. Says Okello, â€śI will not even think of failing. I will not even think of stopping. Because if we all had a challenge and stopped, then what would happen?â€ť
In addition to his motivating and inspirational speech, Okello performs workshops on team-building, leadership, and traditional Ugandan music and dance.
