The Management Student Association of UNILAG Organizes An Entrepreneurship Talk

We were invited to an entrepreneurship talk by the Management students of the University of Lagos. I was asked to speak on ‘What it takes to be a successful entrepreneur’ and I was so excited to find out that Mrs Ayodeji Megbope was a co-speaker.

She happens to be one of the people who inspired me into being an entrepreneur about 5 years ago, when I listened to her speak at a meeting. It was a privilege to listen to her tell her story again, as she is a source of inspiration each time she speaks.

I was also inspired by Mrs Eniola Salu Akintunde; the CEO of Styles by Saennys who got fired from the University of Lagos because she was running a full time programme alongside.

She talked about how she took it as a challenge, went into entrepreneurship and today is a producer of Gem stones, accessories and unique jewelry items. Her company is one of the leading jewelry creation companies in Nigeria today.

There were other inspiring speakers like Mrs Kemi Adesina, the CEO Kess Karpets and the CEO of Xandrina Dress makers and designers.

I focused on inspiring the students by letting them know that talent is not enough, that they needed more to succeed in business.

I also spoke to them on the importance of work ethics such as Integrity, Responsibility, Teamwork, Professionalism and Excellence, and how they can be strong determinants to building a successful business.

It was a successful event and BI Empowerment would like to say “Good Job” to the Executives who put the conference together.
