Apostle of Strategic Disruption
He’s sometimes called the trouble maker. And would proudly announce his arrival at some of his gigs with the words, “I have come to trouble you; I have come to trouble your trouble”. He connects easily with young people and has set for himself the task of building them up into great global treasures. Ubong Thompson King, convener of Thinkation, one of the biggest youth empowerment conferences on the continent, and founder/president of Ubong King Foundation, is disruption personified. His mission is to reset the mindset of people and challenge them to step away from their comfort zones win big in life. He believes hunger is one of the best drivers anyone can find. Whether it is hunger for food, fame or fortune. His story – privileged at birth, impoverished through death and poor choices and steady rise to national and international prominence – is the classic story of God, Goal’s and Guts.
Before venturing into leadership coaching and mentorship, Ubong made a mark in business as a top safety and security professional. Born August 22, 1972, Ubong King is a graduate of Agriculture from the University of Calabar, holds a Masters Degree from the Metropolitan School of Business and Technology, Brazil and was conferred with an Honourary Doctorate Degree by the Escape-Benin University in Benin Republic.
A winner of several reputable international Awards, including The African Child Prize for Integrity Security Intelligence by the African Child Foundation in 2016 among others, Dr King is the Chief Executive Officer of Protection Plus Securities Limited.
