Women receive nuggets for breakthrough at conference
IT was evident that the previous Inspiring Change with Adesunmbo Adeoye had an unforgettable impact in the lives of participants. And the proof of this was the 2015 edition of the conference with the theme: “Make it Happen” in celebration of the International Women’s Day.
It was indeed an occasion to make it happen with conference facilitators that joined Adeoye, which included Nkechi Harry Ngonadi, Omotunde Adebowale David (LOLO 1), Olasumbo Owoyele, Nomthi Odukoya, Toke Makinwa and Toyin Bello.
It was a cocktail of inspiring stories from achievers from different segment of the economy, whose life stories and words of admonitions could turn around any hopeless life. Their humble beginnings coupled with readiness to adapt to changes were actually the nuggets dished to the audience who showed strong entrepreneurial drive to succeed.
Odukoya, a Pastor from the Fountain of Life Church, Lagos, urged participants to fight for their lives by getting a strategy from God on how to execute it.
According to Adeoye, “only a very few confident women have ventured into entrepreneurship, knowing well that becoming a leading woman in a male-dominated world requires both strength and skills. These women were smart, industrious, responsible and trusted to be an indispensable helper to families, friends, communities and the society at large. If women like you and I could achieve that goal, then we can too.”
Worthy of note was the recommendation to governments at all levels by a political analyst, Mr. Tony Uranta, that women involvement in governance should be reviewed upward. He was of the school of thought that women have an edge over men in moral uprightness and should therefore be given a chance by politicians with a view to turning things around in the nation.
