As for me, I would be at the Prof. Pat Utomi’s Centre for Values and Leadership (CVL) role model forum both as a speaker and student.

Personally, I love to learn from great minds because no matter how smart you think you are, you can never know it all. So, would you

please accept my special invitation to attend the role model event at no cost whatsoever?

One of the keys to being and staying successful is to make sure you live a life of constant learning. Read what Fola Adeola of GTBank fame says about being a student here. You will see why you need to grab events like this with both hands.

I am happy and honoured that I sharing a bit of my story at the event – it happens to be the very first speaking engagement of this year. Remember, my 365 days, 100 Goals summit?

This is indeed huge for me and all glory goes back to God. So its 1 down, 99 to go 🙂  Goal setting is powerful, just go on and give it a try starting today!

Don’t you think it is a cool Opportunity?

I am blessed with spotting good opportunities and I can tell you straight up that the CVL’s monthly role model forum is a cool opportunity. It doesn’t just stop with hearing successful folks tell their stories, you can also ask them challenging questions.

I remember at the last role model forum, a participant asked Tonye Cole of Sahara Energy how he handles the issue of bribery and corruption in the Oil & Gas sector since he is preaching integrity?

Trust me when I say this is one event you cannot and should not miss for any reason except of course it is totally beyond your control. So, would you be attending? I love to hear from you, so feel free to use the comment box below.
