Why is GTBank organizing a Fashion Event, and Why Should I Attend?

The GTBank Fashion Weekend may seem novel for a financial institution, but it is part of the bank’s long history of supporting the local fashion industry.

Guaranty Trust Bank plc, last week announced the debut of the GTBank Fashion Weekend, set to hold on the 12th and 13th of November 2016, at the GTCentre, Oniru, Victoria Island. With the bank being the first financial institution to pioneer such initiative, it is important to understand its motive for organizing such an event and necessary to know what guests will gain from attending.

 

gtbank-fashion-weekend-2016
Why is GTBank Organizing a Fashion Weekend?

Perhaps the short answer is: To promote enterprise in the SME sector of the Fashion industry. The not-so-short answer would begin with the fact that GTBank actually has an extensive footprint in fashion that goes back several years. The bank has sponsored two of the country’s leading fashion events, The Arise Fashion Week and The Lagos Fashion and Design Week, for a combined period of five years. The bank has also contributed significantly to raising the international profile of African fashion through collaborations including the Ndani Installation at Selfridges and the “Double Club” Collaboration with PRADA.

The GTBank Fashion Weekend is thus an extension of the bank’s long tradition of supporting the local fashion industry and African fashion in general. However Read more

RCCG Nu Breed Digital BootCamp 2016 » 23rd – 29th October

Digital BootCamp is a workshop designed to equip the upcoming generation of youths (millennials) with the tools and techniques required to make them a major stakeholder in the emerging virtual world. As the world advances and gradually diffuses into a virtually real word, teenagers need to be informed about this reality, carried along and trained to become major stakeholders in the making of the emerging virtual world. It is our candid belief that teenagers in this part of the world should not just be consumers, but also makers and drivers of the trend. In this wise, the workshop will therefore engage intensive training in the dynamics of digitalization which will be interactive in orientation.

Mark Zuckerberg –

Last stop of my trip: I’m in Abuja to meet Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

We all met with entrepreneurs as part of Demo Day, an initiative for the Nigerian government to fund entrepreneurs with ideas for improving the country. We heard from engineers who are finding ways to reward people for recycling, designing ways to pick up trash easier, and using shuttles to improve commutes in Lagos.

This has been an inspiring trip. The energy and entrepreneurship in Nigeria and Kenya is amazing. I can’t wait to come back again soon!

Nigeria’s Paschal Dike nominated for Junior Chamber International World President

pascalSince JCI became an international organization in 1946, it has produced till date 70 World Presidents from about 36 countries. JCI started in Nigeria in 1957 making it a 58 year old organization in Nigeria. No Nigerian has ever been elected as President of this International Organization for these numbers of years.

 

A look at the JCI Website www.jci.cc indicates it is a truly international organization but with local and national impacts. JCI has partnerships with such reputable international organizations as; International Chamber of Commerce – World Chamber Federation (ICC-WCF), United Nations Foundation Nothing But Nets Campaign, UN Millennium Campaign, United Nations and the UN Development Goals, United Nations Global Compact, Pan American Health Organization, UNESCO and runs joint projects with these and other partners. JCI in their member countries also have similar partnerships with a number of other organizations.

 

JCI is a one year to lead organization. That means for every office you hold, you hold for only one year. There is no such thing as second tenure and this is an example of what selfless service should be.

 

The JCI Presidency is one that every member country aspires to experience and exercise. The holder of such office works with a team to continue to advance the mission of JCI but very importantly, he is an Ambassador of his country to the world. He is a role model to the young people of his country and the world as he will travel around the world to motivate, inspire and challenge members and young people to take more actions to better themselves and better their communities. He will oversee JCI’s work for a better and peaceful world by making better leaders, better innovative entrepreneurs, better citizens, people who carry out various projects to address community challenges.  It is therefore a great pride to the country, its Government and its youths as the individual becomes a true example of a Nigerian Citizen in the eyes of the world.

It is true that no Nigerian has ever been elected JCI President, but the good news is that there is a golden opportunity to change that.

Junior Chamber International in Nigeria has nominated one of her own Paschal Dike as candidate for 2016 JCI World President during the JCI World Congress which will hold in the city of Kanazawa, Japan from November 3-8, 2015. Read more
