Happy New Year Everyone!! (She said, almost a month after) New Year, New Greatness, right? I'm glad to have something really fun to share :)
The lovely people at "he Leads Africa, an organization I admire and support, asked me to moderate a panel at their first #SlayFestival at the weekend, and it was epic!! From different panels on a range of topics (Women in Tech, Being a Man in the 21st century, From Contact to Contract), to mini-concerts, stalls and SME worshops for one on one advice and coaching from women, for women, it was a great event. There was also a hair bar, mani-pedi area, henna, a bar with delish drinks, and a JOLLOF RICE bar. Yeah, I partook of that, thank you very much!!
It was held at the Railway compound in Ebute Metta, which made it super rustic and fun. The heat that day was KILLER, so I was glad I had on that SPF, but I think almost everyone felt like they were melting :). I thoroughly enjoyed my panel - 'Fro Contact to Contract.' My panelists were PR lady Bukky Karibi-Whyte, the CEO of Invicta Africa & The Bobby Taylor company, Rose Umane, partnerships lead at BellaNaija, and Kabir Shagaya, CEO of Zippy Logistics. It was great to meet so many new people, and I got some great feedback about the panel, so that made me very happy. I'm already looking forward to the next one!
Here are some pictures from the day. Sadly, because I was meeting so many people and trying to survive the heat, I didn't get many pictures of the actual event on my phone, but thanks to my trusty photog Tobi Tejumola, who took and edited the ones below.
I also don't have much video, but I put together a little somethin' somethin', again, thanks to Tobi Tejumola for the video!
Hope you enjoyed the post. As usual, please like, comment & subscribe (yes, all three, why not?)! Have a fab weekend!
