Renowned American Inspirational Speaker, Dr. John Maxwell, will arrive the country next week to address Nigerian leaders, policy makers, Chief Executive Officers and entrepreneurs on managerial skills at a Leadership &Management Conference.
â€œWe are bringing the foremost name and the foremost speaker in leadership and management scheme of things.Â Maxwell has spoken to various organisations like Fortune500, United Nations, and had been special adviser to many past US Presidents.Â He will be in Lagos next week for the conference scheduled for May 28,â€ said Christopher Omoijiade, spokesman for Attrium Consultants.
Maxwell, he said, would address corporate executives and government officials on their managerial skills, stressing: â€œNigeria is a country with abundant resources but without the right management and leadership to steer us in the right direction, these investment opportunities can not be adequately exploited to make the country a more prosperous one.â€
â€œWe have other good speakers that will be speaking alongside Maxwell.Â They include Mr. Toyin Subair, Managing Director of HITV, Mr. Tonye Cole, CEO, Sahara Energy, Managing Director, Visible Impact, Fela Durotaye, including Dr. Wale Babalakin, Managing Director, Stabilini Visinoni, among others,â€ he stated.
â€œAttrium recognises the current positive /negative exposure and attention many Nigerian CEOs and entrepreneurs are getting across the globe.Â Nigeria still remains a country with enormous investment potentials cut across various sectors of the economy.
Harnessing this potential has become increasingly difficult due to leadership and management issues, hence, the theme for the conference.â€
According to him, dignitaries being expected to grace the event are the Pro Chancellor Pan African University and former High Commission to United Kingdom, Dr. Christopher Kolade, Governors Babatunde Fashola and Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State.
