Obinwanne Okeke spoke about the “DNA of the Nigerian entrepreneur” He buttress on so many points encouraging entrepreneurs to have a resilient spirit
“The success of a business is largely dependent on you as the owner.
If there is any part of you that appears to be a limitation, don’t let it hold you back.
Take deliberate steps to develop yourself to match your weakness, growth is continuous.
Associate with people that will inspire you and are ready to support you.
Develop these traits in the right proportion.
Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try. Go for it.
Start Something Today!”
Also Speaking on the theme of the conference, Emmanuel Adegboye, convener of TEDxYaba says “If you’re passionate about positive change in Nigeria, it’s very easy to get tired and frustrated when you realize how seemingly insignificant your impact is in the grand scheme of things needed to fix the country permanently. By ‘fix’, I mean moving the needle in a positive direction and setting us on a consistent path of undeniable progress, judging by globally accepted indices and metrics. This has been my mood for the past couple of months but it’s time for a Reboot, and I’m very excited about the conversations this conference is going to ignite, and the changes that will follow.”
This year’s TEDxYaba conference also offers, for the first time, a TEDxYaba Women event tagged “Showing Up” on December 9th, after the international TEDWomen 2018 conference of the same theme holding from November 28 – 30.
