About

I’m a certified management consultant with my area of expertise being the hospitality and real estate sectors with over 15 years entrepreneurial experience. I could also be termed as a serial entrepreneur as my journey started as a fashionpreneur but I eventually settled into the hospitality and real estate industries. I’m passionate about providing mentorship and business development support to budding entrepreneurs with the hope that they would learn a thing or two from my experience and avoid some of the pitfalls encountered in the entrepreneurial journey.

Previously my company was given a mandate to train over 200 youths in Hospitality Operations (Front Office, Food & Beverage, Housekeeping and Sales) in partnership with Lagos State and UNDP under the Lagos State Employability Support Programme and initiative of the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund. Upon successful completion of the project we got a mandate to train about 600 youths on Food Handling and Safety under the same programme but sponsored by LSETF and USADF. Also entered in a partnership with Halogen Academy to provide the same training across Nigeria.

I also facilitate Customer Service training for various organisations and sit on the advisory board of Nenis Autocare.

I am currently a Certified SAFe Scrum Master and POPM. I believe these skills would be helpful in driving agility and business transformation with a Lean Business mindset in view of the upcoming global recession

Mentorship motivation

  • I like to learn about industries and new businesses
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

I am very passionate about mentoring because you not only get the opportunity to give back and help another business grow into a successful enterprise but you also get a chance to learn a whole lot from your mentee.

Also, seeing my mentee becoming a success gives me such immense joy and I know I have in one way contributed to the growth of the economy, be it locally, nationally or internationally.
