Youth have been advised to adopt to the trending and changing business environment if they are to succeed.
The remarks were made by Professor Waswa Balunywa the Makerere University Business School Principal at the launch of the Third Business Trend setters Forum 2022, under the theme “Innovation Culture for Business Continuity” at Solid Rock Life in Kitante Kampala.
“The whole trend has changed, the old trend is gone there’s something new, those who want to make money should adopt to change,” Balunywa said.
Balunywa added, “Covid has changed everything, if you continued to think, like you thought in 2019, sorry you have no business, the trend has changed we are all in the same market, we all in the same industry, but there are those who see things differently and those who see things differently, those are the trend setters who see what others don’t see.”
He added, “I conduct free lessons on Saturdays, but if you need me to come and talk to you, you pay not less than Ugx 5 million, a lot of things have changed, Business can not be done in the old same way,”
Balunywa noted that people are stuck in the past, a thing that must end if businesses and individuals are to succeed. “You young people if you want to succeed don’t be satisfied with what you have today,”
Yvone Mpanga the Executive Chairperson for the Business Trend Setters forum and vision bearer noted that they will hold a grand finale on April 6, where they will identify, recognize and award.
She said that they are targeting young and old exceptional entrepreneurs.
