The Simon Page College of Marketing Masterclass is a free event that is held every month. The aim of the Masterclass is to allow industry leaders to share their expertise in an interactive forum. It offers a great networking platform and infinite opportunities to stay ahead of the curve.

This month, our guest speaker is Mr. James Ngomeli, speaking on Understanding Office Politics.

Office Politics; no one likes it, others cringe at the thought of it. The reality is that companies are by nature political organizations, joining it is a political act, you must influence people all the time. It means if you want to survive and thrive at the workplace you can’t just sit on the sidelines. If you want to make an impact, like it or not you must be a player in the game. It doesn’t mean playing dirty but you must figure out how to influence those around you.

James has vast experience in leading over a 12,000 strong workforce organization (Kenya Power) through one of the largest change programs in Africa. This gave him a lot of insight in the complex process of change management. This coupled with his experience as a skillful marketer on brand development and consumer behavior was key in the success of the change program.

James is currently a Change management consultant, the Chief Energizing Officer at Brands and Beyond Ltd an Energy consultancy firm, Publisher of the ‘Watts Up’ Energy Magazine, Author of first fiction Children Book on electricity “Stima Series”, Chair of Chartered Institute of Marketing East Africa and Certified Pension Fund Trustee.
