“My Chat with a Bank CEO” is an unprecedented social media event presented by the Kenya Bankers Association (KBA).

Thousands of bank customers participate in the #CEOChat sessions during which various bank Chief Executive Officers share information and receive feedback on various aspects of banking. In July 2023, the Association conducted three editions of the Chat, bringing on board CEOs from Postbank, Habib Bank, and UBA Bank Kenya. These chats had an online reach of over 800 million, providing the individual banks with considerable PR value and industry thought leadership opportunities.

Under the theme: “Promoting Sustainable Financial Inclusion in the EAC Region’’ the next chat has been scheduled for October 2022 and will feature East African Community Region Associations CEOs who will engage the public on ways of deepening Financial Inclusion in the region.

The four-week engagement will feature four Associations CEOs: Dr. Habil Olaka, CEO- Kenya Bankers Association; Ms. Tusekelege Joune, Executive Director- Tanzania Bankers Association; Mr. Tony Francis NtoreM, CEO- Rwanda Bankers Association; Mr. Wilbrod Humphreys Owor, CEO- Uganda Bankers Association; and Mr. Boaz .
