Mukiri, an industrious young lady, called it a day along the corridors of law to follow her burning passion and desire to make a lasting impact in the world of entrepreneurship.
She graciously resigned as a litigator and founded Zuri Events, a sustainable business event firm with a bias in Corporate Event Management.
‘Zuri Events’ has been in operation for more than 10 years, and is a highly accredited top events company in Kenya.

Most Kenyans do not know that Ms. Mukiri was the pillar behind the success of the first Global MICE Summit held in Kenya.

The Summit defines a unified focus and direction for the Global Meetings Industry and a platform that enables cross-functional collaboration and gives the right skills to deliver towards a sustainable, people inclusive and tech adoptive MICE Industry.
The Global MICE Summit for 2019 will be held for three days, September 11-13, at the Trademark Hotel.
