At the Enterpreneural Platform Initiative symposium tagged “How to Position Your Business For Greatness” which held today at Sunshine Hall, Sparklyn Hotel, G.R.A, Port-Harcourt, a lot of grand things went down. There is so much to expect from the Niger-Delta women and indeed anyone who associates with them in the times ahead, as they take on a positively rewarding stance on their business and enterprise activities. Three outstanding women offered valuable information that is very insightful, for enterpreneurs who seek to create, thrive and win. The speakers were Mrs. Brayila Awofeso (Founder, House of Sapphires Women Foundation), Mrs. Tina Njoku Okpara (CEO, TIN Group of Companies, Owners of Sparklyn Hotel), and HRM Dr. (Barr.) Josephine. A. Diete-Spiff (CEO, Titare Academy, Port-Harcourt).
The meeting started with a meet and greet timeout which was followed by a customary
safety briefing from the host. Thereafter was a welcome address from Mrs. Mercy Bello Abu, the Founder of the Enterpreneural Platform. She said the whole idea was to inspire women who have to go through many struggles in order to achieve greatness, to provide solutions to problems the teething businesses around are going through. Mrs. Tina Okpara who gave practical steps on starting up a business using her personal experience as a point of reference, melted hearts and planted business seeds in the lives of many. According to her, to successfully grow a business one must be passionate, determined, persistent, a hard worker, a good time manager, a prudent spender and customer focused.
Dr Diete-Spiff spelt out a working plan on how to manage the challenges of different business areas to stop women from throwing in the towel when the going gets tough, stating that there is need for zero tolerance for a business to stay afloat. Mrs. Awofeso talked on building legacies by living passionately, saying that women of influence are people who understand the purpose of their positions.
Generally, it was such an inspiring get-together and everyone in attendance left the room charged up to take the bold step required for the big win in the various business worlds. Indeed, great destinies cannot be built alone and the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Go ahead and light up your world!
