The power of the brand YOU!

The reason why people pick us over our colleagues, friends and peers has a lot to do with the value we offer and the personal values that drive us.

The session on Personal Branding was a revealing moment for the Change Champions on our 2019 Young Leaders Mentoring Programme, as they were taught building a personal brand requires authenticity, consistency, and staying power.

Special thanks to our partner Mr. Idy Enang, a marketing and branding guru and a living brand himself, for sharing insights on what it takes to stand out, attract opportunities and be the best and preferred choice among equals.

Getting set for a remarkable leadership experience!

It was a paradigm shift for the Change Champions during the third Module of the Young Leaders Mentoring Programme, as the founder of S.M.I.L.E, Mrs Bimpe Bamgbose-Martins explained that true leadership is about selfless service, influence, transformation and impact. She urged the young emerging leaders to start taking responsibility for things happening around them, not waiting for a title or a position, and engage in little acts to bring about change and improvement. She emphasized that no one is too young to lead or make a difference.

The Change Champions were also taught some critical skills that will make them effective leaders – public speaking and presentation skills, time management and mentoring skills.

We are confident the Change Champions are set for an impactful leadership experience.
