About Mr. Simbowo

Mr. Simbowo has been development-conscious as long as he can remember. He remembers writing regionally (school-wise) award winning literature as far back as elementary school. His skills however took a sharp turn when he started pursuing his undergraduate training at Maseno University in western Kenya. Officially, he has been the East Africa Coordinator and Correspondent for the EuroAfricaCentral Network, and Orato Magazine Special Correspondent among other writing engagements. Similarly, he has participated in the research and reviewing of the United Nations Youth and Millennium Development Goals report produced by a UN-mandated Ad Hoc Committee. He has co-authored some journal publications and book citations. He is also a columnist for a Kenyan design publication.

As someone who believes everyone deserves a chance to maximize their potential, he avails his unique public speaking, writing and development strategy consultancy services to you.

His greatest inspiration comes from such quotations as:

"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race".

-Calvin Coolidge

"The tragedy of life is what dies in the hearts and souls of people while they live".

"It's not that I'm so smart , it's just that I stay with problems longer".

"Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly".

-Albert Einstein

"If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities. The thing is to get the work done'.

-Benjamin Franklin
