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 haschristened the years 2010-2020 as the African Women’s Decade as more women takethe reins at the most reputable institutions on the continent. Sadly, women arestill among the most underutilized resources in community development in Africa.
It is commonly saidthat there is a lot that women can do to support one another and the firstthing we can do is simply show up for another. It helps tremendously to sharenot only our successes but also our failures with one another in order for usto grow and truly learn from one another.
At the WIBLE Summit,you will hear from a number of women who have achieved excellence in theircareers and have overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. You can choosefrom over 20 different workshop sessions that will explore leadership,communication, finances, diversity, entrepreneurship, strategic decisionmaking, marketing through technology, and networking. These programs willmotivate you to work toward your own goals to achieve greatness in whatever youdo.
