Renowned tourism guru Amos Wekesa has revealed that starting next year he will be charging for public speaking appearances he makes.
Posting on his Facebook page, Wekesa said he has discovered that he can be a motivational speaker and that every time he speaks to an audience he feels the vibe especially after saying a prayer before heading to a microphone.
According to Wekesa, he got the idea of charging for his public speeches after being invited by Enterprise Uganda, a Non Governmental Organization that paid him well after delivering his service.
“I was also paid well for the talk, something i didn’t expect,” he said.
Adding, “Since I get too many invitations for speaking, I will start charging next year,”
Wekesa who runs two of Uganda’s most successful tour companies; Great Lakes Safaris and Uganda Lodges further disclosed that the money collected from public speaking will be used to pay school fees for kids (including his), support children in motor cross games among others.
Amos Masaba Wekesa, is the founder of Great Lakes Safaris and Uganda Lodges Limited. Born and raised in Eastern Uganda under the guardianship of a Scottish lady, Joan Linanker, in the Salvation Army Home for less privileged children. He has an inspiring and humbling background that reflects the person he is today, a God fearing and honest leader.
Today, he owns properties across Uganda and hopes to build a five-star hotel in Entebbe before he turns 50. He already has two-and-a-half acres of land allotted for this purpose.
