Moments from Sunmbo Adeoye’s Inspiring Change Conference 2019
The 6th edition of the Annual Inspiring change conference 2019 tagged NEW DIMENSION was super packed with Smokey sessions.
Saturday March 30,2019 is certainly not a day to be forgotten in a hurry, as women gathered at the Wisdom Arena Lagos, to sharpen and redefine their thoughts for advancement.
The keynote was delivered by the convener, Adesunmbo Adeoye, who reiterated the need for women to embrace new dimensions so they won’t be left behind in today’s fast-paced world.
The special guest speaker, Pastor Nomthi Odukoya of the Fountain of Life cChurch spoke on the need for everyone to maximize their abilities and take the necessary step to manifest so the world will not be upset with them.
It was not just a meeting; the event was a conference on a mission to ensure attendees fulfil the purpose as the GIRL TALK panel comprising of Nneka Okekearu of EDC, Bunmi George of Shredders Gang and Olashile Abayomi of Soupamarket, moderated by the convener, addressed the burning issues faced by entrepreneurs in today’s economy.
The interactive session guided by the topic #InspiringNewDimension featured a Q&A segment, where attendees were allowed to ask questions in areas ranging from career, business and its intricacies.
There was loud applause in response to the impactful values and knowledgeable responses from the responses of the “Girl Talk” speakers.
The second plenary session followed closely with a unique panel on gender disparity. The panel had Gbenga Ayo Dada CEO of Gbenga Artsmith and Ufuoma a 5star Female Uber driver as panellists.
They inspired many with their inspiring journey into an industry highly dominated by their female and male counterpart respectively and encouraged attendees to take a step towards fulfilling a purpose and never see their gender as a limiting factor.
There was an empowerment session, where less privileged women in business were given cash grants and tools ranging from deep freezer, electronic mixer and a Well finished wooden kiosk donated by Jbfurnitures to further enhance the business of one of the empowered market women during the Entrepreneurial Advancement Talk organized by the Inspiring Change with Sunmbo’ initiative in February 2019.
Some other beneficiaries enjoyed free training opportunity in jewellery making, fashion designing and cake making. This segment was supported by the collaborations of the Inspiring change initiative with Gbenga Artsmith, Tee Thread and Graces Cakes.
The conference ended on a very high note as attendees were treated to an array of goods and services displayed at the exhibition stand within the arena. This was yet another round of engagement as women network as sales and exhibition went on.
It was indeed a day full of Inspiration, learning, relearning, sharing, networking and empowerment.
