TEC, business experts to host forum on national prosperity
A non-denominational Christian ministry, The Elevation Church (TEC) is set to host Vantage Forum; a high-profile business and economic outlook event.
According to TEC this year’s edition will focus on, ‘2019 and Beyond: Stimulating national prosperity’ and will engage respected individuals who have been carefully selected to ensure balanced analysis and discussions.
Now in its fifth edition, Vantage Forum; a bespoke business outlook event for entrepreneurs and business executives, will hold on January 31, tailored to mid-level managers, business executives, existing and aspiring entrepreneurs, and C-level executives.
Speaking at a media parley in Lagos yesterday, Lead Pastor, TEC, Godman Akinlabi, said the forum is a yearly entrepreneurial advancement initiative of the church focused on empowering individuals to achieve the highest levels of distinction in their businesses and careers.
Akinlabi said the quality of the discourse makes it an event more suited to senior business executives, owners of medium-sized businesses and high net-worth individuals through provision of resources such as business seminars, workshops, and mentorship programs.
The Chief Operating Officer, TEC, Tunji Iyiola, said: “Vantage Forum started in 2014 when it became clear that there was a knowledge gap between the policy makers, economists and those who were actually in business.
“We saw the need for a business outlook event that focused on the analysis of the economic and political terrain with a view to giving businesspersons a roadmap to run with for the year.
It is hard to win a race when you are running blind,” he said.
Also one of the invited speakers, Opuiyi Oforiokuma, remarked that the church has a role to play in the marketplace.
According to Oforiokuma, who will be speaking on the role of infrastructure as an enabler to business and national development, infrastructure is a direct contributor to national GDP growth.
However, the event will feature notable speakers and a host of experts in the business, financial and economic sectors to discuss trends and strategies to excel in business this year.
