A fast-rising Public relations Organization in Lagos, BrandTell Nigeria, has organised a hangout for business owners to strengthen their visions as entrepreneurs.
The hangout, held at Shodex Gardens on Saturday, was tagged ‘Funtime to Fortify’.
This edition, organized in partnership with Olusola Adekoya Foundation, was attended by over 30 business owners and creative directors from different sectors of the economy.
Gloria Ijenebe, who participated at the event, disclosed in her appreciation to the convener that she ‘learned and unlearned’ through the programme.
The Creative director of Ewa leathers, who is also a legal practitioner, said that the event boosted her morale as an entrepreneur.
She said, “Before the event, I had almost given up on my brand and dream. I however feel like this event is solely organised for me.”
“I appreciate the quality of people invited, the time and efforts put into organising this programme, the entire team and most of all, I appreciate the convener.”
“I learned and unlearned. I have a fresh drive and zeal to see my brand start afresh and I am excited for the future”, she added.
Mary Diego, the CEO of Hermosa Body Works, commended the team for a ‘great work done to impact’.
“I am so glad and well appreciative for being a partaker of such an amazing gathering. It is with plum pleasure to meet the Creative Director in person as well.”
“I look forward to many more gatherings as I join forces with Nixxhash Communications to impact our world.”
For Kolawole Keshinro, the Executive Director of Specsfotografi, it was another feather to the convener’s cap after witnessing the first edition last year.
While describing the convener, Adenike Fagbemi, he said, “I’m glad to have her in my corner. She is a selfless being, ever eager to give back to humanity. She is always supportive of friends and always seeking to bring out the best in others.”
The Executive director and Team Lead, BrandTell Nigeria & Nixxhash Communications, Adenike Fagbemi -who is the convener of the event- stated that it is an attempt to reinforce the need for more people to go into entrepreneurship as a way of rescuing the government from the numerous national and economic setbacks.
She said, “We need more ideas to be explored. We need more collaborations in the entrepreneurial journey.”
“We are all that we’ve got as business owners. We should stop seeing ourselves as competitors and more as collaborators”, she added.
