Over 300 youth get free corporate training from UK Business School
The training, which held at the International Training Institute (ITI) brought in personalities that have succeeded in establishing their business empires and taking them to profitable ventures, who talked to the participants on initiating, developing and managing their small beginnings to enviable heights.
The Country Deputy Director of MSBM, Mossy Kayode said the training code named Enterprise 101, is aimed at bringing alive the experiences of personalities, known in the business circles, to the youth who aspire to take up their business ideas to the ‘next level’ but are constrained in one way or the other by the vagaries of early beginnings.
She said: “Enterprise 101 is our vision. We have always wanted to bring in entrepreneurs from Abuja to share their experience with young entrepreneurs. The facilitators shared their real life experiences and strategies used to build their brands. So it is important for the aspiring entrepreneurs to take advantage of the training.”
Speakers at the programme included the Managing Director, Transcorp Hilton Hotel Plc, Abuja, Valentine Ozigbo, CEO Razor Sharp, UcheIgbokwe, Regional Manager, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Iheanocho Obi, Chief Executive Officer, Supreme Meditech, Edward Okundaye, CEO, Gogzee, OghoghoMudasiru, CEO Interior Wood Work, Odunayo Emasealu among many others.
Each of the facilitators admonished the aspiring entrepreneurs to look at the bigger picture that is coming ahead, not the little beginning, which usually looks discouraging despite the brighter prospects ahead.
“It is better to start small and grow big, most of the big enterprises we see today have humble beginnings, but bigger dreams, start small then grow big,” Mudashiru emphasized.
