Change the Way You Communicate – Businessman Kirubi tells jobless Kenyan

Many young Kenyans struggling with joblessness are looking for every opportunity they can get to escape unemployment. One such individual decided to make the most of Twitter and request a meeting with industrial mogul Chris Kirubi. The unnamed individual had hoped to get some time with Kirubi to pitch his idea in what is best described as an elevator pitch (where you share your ideas in as little time as possible, ideally the time it takes for an elevator ride).

The young Kenyan’s ideas will however have to remain with him until he can polish his communication skills. In a cringe worthy tweet to the mogul, a mixture of both Kiswahili and English was used with no regard to grammar or spelling. The shorthand style that is common with social media and texting still has no place in the business world according to Chris Kirubi.

The embarrassing tweet involved use of words like; “biz”(business),“gimme”(give me), “nimegraduate”(I have just graduated) and even the name ‘Chris’ did not have the first letter in caps. The young graduate requests five minutes of Kirubi’s time to pitch a business idea in the tweet.

As reports Kenya news now on TUKO,Kirubi asked all young Kenyan’s to change the way they communicate if they are to be taken seriously. This is not the first time the businessman has emphasized the importance of good communication skills to young unemployed Kenyans.

In 2017, Dr. Kirubi made a similar request for the youth to polish their language skills and to avoid completely the use of improper grammar and slang in corporate settings. He affirmed that he is not ready to take anyone that cannot communicate well seriously making it impossible for hi to trust such individuals with his business interests.
