BeenThere and DoneThat Ltd organised a second leadership conference last month (24th October 2015) in Nottingham, UK. The theme of the conference was Legendary Leadership Lessons (2). Just like the first, the purpose of the conference was to inspire, motivate and support young Africans who are or who wish to be in positions of leadership to learn about key leadership skills. Such skills include integrity, honesty, determination, courage, commitment, passion, confidence, goal-setting and positivity.
The conference, hosted by Temi Ilori, served as an arena for knowledge exchange, debate and discussion among emerging young African leaders. The attendance of senior citizens was hugely welcomed as conference delegates asserted that they benefited from their elderly counsel during the interactive sessions.
Olusegun Ezekiel and Kayode Ogundamisi were keynote speakers at the conference. Olusegun spoke about the Implication of Political Leadership on the Economic Development of Africa while Kayode focused on Politics and Journalism, Lessons from the Last Decade and Lessons for Future Leaders.
Other Distinguished Speakers such as Karo Orovboni spoke on Becoming Agents of Change, Sola Afolabi on the Importance of Education and Self-Development, Kelechi Anyikude (Leadership: Share the Vision), karibiba Amachree (Climbing the Ladder of Success), Naomi Simon (Beyond the Rhetoric of Pan-Africanism, how we can Make Impact), Rene Germain (Facing the Future), Taiwo Gisanrin (Leadership Values for Next Generation Leaders), Dipo Awojide (The Journey from Failure to Success), Dr. Jaliyyah Bello (Gender Equality in Nigeria, how we can Make Progress) and Bisola Babalola on Academic Excellence and Leadership Tips for Young People.
Staying true to our core mission of promoting youth development, we shall be hosting a third leadership conference in Nigeria in the coming months.
