The much anticipated Organic Conversations Lagos event took place last Saturday, 7th of April and it was everything we wanted it to be.
The event was packed with many young entrepreneurs looking to learn from other professionals that have been successful in their various endeavors.
The speakers shared their experiences, good and bad, of how they manipulated the world of entrepreneurship and how they got to where they are right now.
The host of the day was an entrepreneur too, she is the CEO of WeConnect Travels, Shade Ladipo and she shared how she got into the Travel business.
Other speakers included Amaechi Okobi, Kola Kuddus, Precious Idaewor, Muyi Olaitan, Oma Areh, Shade Ladipo, Adeola Olowe and Omontese Akhetuamen.

Precious Idaewor, Deputy Manager, Robert Taylor Media, spoke and encouraged the young entrepreneurs to not give up and always learn from their mistakes.
Muyi Olaitan- is the lead Convener of The Organic Conversations, which is an informal communion of startups and small business owners, seeking to inspire each- other, learn from one another, and high-level professionals amidst fun, arts and networking.
He emphasized the importance of your brand logo is. “Your brand logo speaks for you as much as your work or service you deliver,” he said.
Olaitan noted that your brand logo is the first thing the customer sees about your company. It’s what makes or breaks your company, because our minds compute with logo or brand logos we find nice or interesting.
Amaechi Okobi is the Head of Corporate Communications for Access Bank Plc; he’s a brand manager.
He spoke about how you need to be your brand. That is if you’re a fashion designer wear your designs, make-up artist do your own makeup. You, yourself are your first advertiser.
Oma Areh is the CEO of Wildflower PR. She’s a PR Rep who created a niche for herself through the help of social media. She says you shouldn’t underestimate the power of Social Media and learn to always cease your chances and be ready to go at all times.
It was a very educative and enlightening session and we most definitely are looking forward to more Organic events like that.
