Who else is excited about this?! It has been confirmed! The Women in Management, Business and Public Service (WIMBIZ) will be holding its 18th Annual Conference on Thursday and Friday, November 7th and 8th, 2019, at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
This year’s Conference themed – “Shaping the Future, Strategizing to Win” will feature practical sessions designed to equip the women with winning strategies and hands-on knowledge to take on new challenging roles, explore emerging business opportunities, build and sustain a successful career in today’s fast-paced world.
The plenary and deep dive sessions will address topics ranging from: “Our Seat at the table; Collaborating to Win: Navigating the Old Boys Club; Developing a Wealth Mindset; Partnerships That Struck Gold; The Imposter Syndrome-Myth or Truth? Staying Ahead of The Game; Understanding Consumer Behaviour; Mr & Mrs Inc.; Yes, This Is What I Am Worth and a high-octane debate on Nigeria – Stay or Leave?
To spice up the good news, the plenary speakers are being confirmed and they are prominent women who have distinguished themselves in different management professions… watch this space for the speakers reveal. I’m definitely not going to miss any of the sessions.
If you are wondering what WIMBIZ is all about… Women in Management, Business and Public Service (WIMBIZ), is a non-profit organization started by 13 women and 1 man. Over the last 18 years, WIMBIZ has implemented programs that inspire, empower, connect and advocate for greater representation of women in leadership positions in the public and private sector.
WIMBIZ has a contributory associate pool of over 693 accomplished women in management, business and public service and over 9,500 women in its database.

WIMBIZ is the 1st Nigerian NGO rated by NGO Advisor and ranked as 428 worldwide. It is also the only African/Nigerian affiliate partner and representative of the International Women’s Entrepreneurship Challenge (IWEC) Foundation.
WIMBIZ is also a volunteer-based organization, funded largely by donations and contributions by members and partners and is a supporter for the Code of Ethics and Conduct for NGOs.
I’m really looking forward to this one… You should save the date too!
