Our Team

David Kamau
Chief of Party/Director

I understand my calling in life to be – to help people ‘Align their perspectives to truth.’ This truth is the truth about who they are, what they are capable of and how to overcome what truly holds them back. I’ve been working to fulfil that calling over the past 12 years; through speaking, facilitation and creating life transforming content & curriculum.

Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of engaging with a variety of audiences ranging from children, youth, corporate executives, entrepreneurs among others. These audiences probably total in the thousands. Some of the topics I’ve spoken on include: Leadership, Life Skills, Team work, Entrepreneurship, Facilitation skills, Personal Development, Vision & Strategy, Marriage, Masculinity and a host of others.

Through my work at the RLC, I look forward to impacting and raising a new breed of Leaders that will radically transform the East Africa region & beyond, for good.

When I am not out changing the world, you will find me hanging out with my wife & son.
