Group sets up global network for Delta State indigenes
Following increasing requests by Delta State indigenes for credible information about social and economic activities in the state, Delta Economic Summit Group (DESG) has created a platform called ecoVine, which is basically a global list of indigenes.
EcoVine is open to Deltan professionals around the world; providing members with valuable social and economic information and networking opportunities. The platform gives Deltans an opportunity to become affiliate members of DESG at no cost.
Chairman of DESG, Ese Onosode, said that once ecoVine is launched, DESG will publish informative content for the benefit of all Deltans through digital media and traditional platforms. According to him, ecoVine will be a reliable platform for accessing social and economic information on Delta State.
DESG is a private sector led think tank established in 2015 to promote socio-economic development in Delta State. It is a non-partisan, not for profit organization of professionals of Deltan origin.
The executives of the group include the Director General, Chukwuka Monye, an alumnus of University of Oxford and managing partner of Ciuci consulting and deputy Director General, Brian Hammond, an alumnus of Imperial College, UK and a financial expert.Others are Isioma Udeozo, treasurer, expert in business development, establishing and managing strategic alliances and partnerships, and Hamilton Esi, a public relations officer.
Onosode, said that the value of networking platforms has gone beyond marketing or communication. According to him, it has morphed into new channels for collaboration and innovation. “Networking platforms have been instrumental in bridging relationships that have stimulated economic value in many cases.
It has presented many benefits especially when business relationships are built for monetary gain as it provides an avenue for business growth. About 90 percent of businessmen claimed that networking generated immense exposure for their company that helped build profitable relationships, and that’s only one of its many advantages.”
