Desire Derekford Mugumisa
Head of Corporate Affairs
Starting out as a 16-year-old boy invited to a TV show to speak about food, Desire Derekford Mugumisa has unconventionally made a media, marketing, and communications career for himself where there seemed to be none, in a manner not many could attempt, along the way developing an insatiable appetite for helping others maximize their potential.
A story of purpose, intent, and perseverance has seen the 31-year-old seamlessly transition from a TV presenter that went his first seven years without pay to an all-round media personality, sports marketing and public relations trailblazer, talent manager, public speaker and MC, brand manager, a leadership enthusiast, among others.
Leveraging the unique lessons from a life of rebelling global social benchmarks, Mugumisa – a self-acclaimed uncompromising lover of Ugandan quality – works with individuals and organizations to amplify their communication, connection, and confidence to make an influential impact on Uganda and the world.
Mugumisa is a husband, father of 2, and of the Baha’i faith.
