Invitation to Building Greatness.
Join Me, Oby Ezekwesili, Toyin Saraki, Onyeka Onwenu at Building Greatness WIBLES Summit 2015.
I will like to invite you to join me and other leaders at the 2nd Annual Women in Business and Leadership Summit from the 15th – 17th October 2015 in Lagos, Nigeria.
The African Union has christened the years 2010-2020 as the African Women’s Decade as more women take the reins at the most reputable institutions on the continent. Sadly, women are still among the most underutilized resources in community development in Africa.
It is commonly said, that there is a lot that women can do to support one another and the first thing we can do is simply show up for another. It helps tremendously to share not only our successes but also our failures with one another in order for us to grow and truly learn from one another.
At the WIBLE Summit,you will hear from a number of women who have achieved excellence in their careers and have overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. You can choose from over 20 different workshop sessions that will explore leadership,communication, finances, diversity, entrepreneurship, strategic decision making, marketing through technology, and networking. These programs will motivate you to work toward your own goals to achieve greatness in whatever you do.
Ranging from a First ladies to C-Suite executives, our summit speakers will address a variety of topics critical to women including enhancement of leadership and communication skills, the bridging of the confidence gap, and the “Lean In” theory. You’ll even have the opportunity to get a new “head shot” – something that many of us have not updated in years! Oh Lets I forget lots of fun as well.
