Prof Christopher as the second keynote speaker shared passionately on the need for Nigeria to get it right this time, no doubt this is one man armed with the requisite skill and intelligence to lead a change.
Ali Baba was the next keynote speaker highlighting very elaborately, the reasons for Nigeria’s Graduates Unemoyability bordering mainly on the inability of people to properly identify their areas of strengths and weaknesses. According to him, having identified your area of strength and weaknesses, people should deploy their requisite talents and skills towards achieving their set goals on the route to the desired acquisition of success, wealth and breakthrough in life. This he pointed out, is baring family influences and peer group pressure by friends and close associates.
Then, there was of course, a Masterclass presentation bordering on the opportunities that are available in acquring Certification on Leadership from the Myles Leadership University.
