The BI Empowerment team and 5 other youths after responding to a question on the BI Empowerment blog were selected to attend the drink-up with, the General Manager Super Sport West Africa in person, Felix Awogu. It was a great experience and a relaxed platform to learn.
We benefited a lot from his wealth of knowledge which he sheared through personal experiences, from how he started out at the age of 21 years till date. I’m glad I was able to be part of it, even for me, it was a great learning experience.
Felix concluded by advising youths of today to look beyond their certificates and work towards building a better Nigeria wherever they find themselves. He made emphasis on “hard work and being principled”, as the backbone of growing into a successful entrepreneur or building a successful career.
It was an interactive meeting, all the participants had the freedom to ask questions and discuss with him one on one over drinks and some tasty Sheraton hotel cuisine. It was definitely the place to be on Saturday and I would like to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to Felix Awogu for taking out time from his busy schedule to bond and empower us.
Stay tuned on the BI Empowerment blog for more hangouts with inspiring personalities
