The Seminar will hold on September 3, 2016 at the Catholic Church of Ascension Parish Hall, Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road, Ikeja Lagos and would among others teach the youth how to prepare a business plan, proposal and how to defend such in multinationals.

It would also teach them how to prepare their curriculum vitae to go with the current trend of things.

Ahize who is also the Seminar Committee Chairman said that the second lecture would be given by an accomplished entrepreneur, Mr Azuka Ijekeye, who manages his owns business enterprises passionately and effortlessly,  as a result of years of hard work and experience and innovation in his area of specialization.

“The goal of the seminar is to position participants well and give them an edge above their peers in present day Nigeria. As a follow-up to the seminar, the youth body intends to establish an ‘Entrepreneur Series’ a mini set of interaction engagement, mini seminars aimed at enlightening, empowering and mentoring the next generation of start-ups who would translate their business ideas into reality”

“Inspired by the words of Mahatma Gandhi,’You must be the change you wish to see in the word’. We hope to inspire, revolutionize and positively change the mindset of the Nigerian youth to the opportunities right in front of them.”
