DRIVE YOUR AMBITION: Women Leading Corporates

DRIVE YOUR AMBITION: Women Leading Corporates
2019, March 27

To commemorate the International Women’s day in March, we partnered with She Leads Africa (a community of 600,000 upwardly mobile women) for a private evening of networking and learning tagged, ‘Drive Your Ambition: Women leading corporates’.

Drive Your Ambition took place at the Mitsubishi Motors showroom in Victoria Island bringing together a myriad of senior executive Nigerian women from different sectors of the economy under one roof to share and learn from each other. The opening note was given by Funmi Abiola, Head of Marketing and Communications for Massilia Motors who shed more light on the Drive Your Ambition tagline which was created in 2017 when Mitsubishi Motors turned 100 years old. The event is a continuation of our efforts to Nigerian’s breaking grounds in various industries.

The session officially kicked-off with a few words from the Co-Founder of She Leads Africa, Afua Osei. Osei in her welcome address highlighted the importance of networking and encouraged attendees to partake in a bonding session. The goal of the session was for the attendees to meet new people with experiences similar or different. Speakers at the event were three senior-level female corporate executives including Amuche Okeke-Agba, a Partner in McKinsey & Company’s Lagos office who co-leads the Recovery & Transformation Services practice for McKinsey in West Africa. Ijeoma Agboti-Obatoyinbo, the Managing Director / CEO of FBNQuest Funds Ltd, and lastly, Ugochi Agoreyo, a Partner Development Senior Specialist for West Africa at SAP.

The panel was moderated by Abosede George-Ogan, Director, Strategy, Partnerships and Stakeholder Management at the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund. The women spoke of their experiences gained in the course of their careers, the challenges they have faced and the lessons learned from those challenges.
