Garden City Rooftop was the place a Christian needed to be at last night where the 3rd edition of the Red Sofa Sessions, a platform for Christians in the business sector to meet over a cup coffee, share ideas and listen to talks from successful Christian Inspirational speakers sharing their work and business experiences took place.
The NTV, Good African Coffee, Platinun Gospel and Ug Gospel Life sponsored event was kicked off by a performance from Canaan Gents before introducing the first Speaker Mr Dickson Mushabe the CEO Hostalite Limited Ug who took to the stage at 8:15 PM.
Dickson who disclosed that his journey to success started after completing Senior 6 from Kampala, said that he got his first capital from the business of growing and selling tomatoes on his father’s land and later at Makerere University, he advanced and set up a video library worth Ug Shs 500.000 which he got on a loan and like they say, the rest is now history. He also talked about keeping your clients’ first promises to gain their full trust.
He concluded with urging Christians to use well their social media platforms because they never know who checks them. At times employers perceive employees according to what they post on social media. After his speech that was followed by questions he answered from the crowd, gospel singer Brian Lubega performed before the host called upon the next speaker Mrs Margaret Sekidde the CEO Seroma Christian High School and a born again Christian.
Mrs Margaret asked Christians to be very faithful in business because she remembers being a boss of graduates when she was not one but just because she was trustworthy to her boss, she was assigned that role. She also told the revellers to be so prayerful, because it hurts the devil to see Christians in business. The mother of 7 and grandmother of 5 entirely based her speech quoting Bible scriptures that encourage hard work and discourage laziness and finally she had a time to pray with all the attendees.
The event was later concluded with more musical performances from Coopy Bly and Limit X crew. This session saw the revellers on their heels pulling some rear dance strokes and among, Chano8 landed their eyes on Mrs Elizabeth Mushabe the director of finance and operations SMS ONE (U) Limited, producer Benon of Swangz Avenue and Gospel Singer Sami K.
