ROARING AND READY TO GO: 4TH ANNUAL YES INTERNATIONAL! MAGAZINE LECTURE/COCKTAIL PARTY
Everything is now ready for the 4TH ANNUAL YES INTERNATIONAL! MAGAZINE LECTURE SERIES/COCKTAIL PARTY billed for Friday, June 19, 2015, at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, and at exactly 11am.
Having meticulously dotted all the I’s and crossed all the T’s; and with rock-solid assurances from our Guest Speaker, Mr. Lolu Akinwunmi GMD, Prima Garnet), our Chairman, Mr. Biodun Shobanjo (Chairman, Troyka Holdings) and our Guest of Honour, Barrister Taiwo Adeoluwa (Secretary to the Ogun State Government), we are not in any doubt that all those that have gotten our beautiful white and red card will savour a wondrously rollicking time, in a convivial atmosphere, surrounded by a quality crowd and unimaginable fun.
The topic is RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS IN NIGERIA – MY EXPERIENCE. This will be professionally and painstakingly treated by Mr. Akinwunmi, also the former Chairman, Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON). Mr. Shobanjo, a hugely successful business mogul, will also share a little of his business experiences with our distinguished guests.
To ensure that things move sequentially and according to plans, ace comedian, Gbenga Adeyinka, will be the anchor. And for quality music to appreciate and salute the Almighty God, multiple award winning gospel musician, Sammie Okposo, will be in charge. Friends and supporters of YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine who have been there for us since inception – people like Bisi Olatilo, Muiz Banire, Oba Dokun Abolarin, Chidi Mokeme, Kanayo .O. Kanayo, Zeb Ejiro, Zik Okafor, Rev. Fr. Chijioke Azuawusiefe and Steve Ayorinde will make short remarks.
But while they are doing that, sumptuous finger foods from Adeedas would have started doing the rounds. Likewise ice-cold and hygienically made cocktail from Labash and bottles of chilled water from Blessed Water. Plus great wine from Tetundia.
The Elegant Stallion, Onyeka Onwenu, with One Love, will unveil this year’s YES CLASSICS! – a collection of some of our best interviews in the past year. The YES CLASSICS!, even though we are saying it, is a collector’s item. Therefore, you must make sure that you don’t step out of the hall without a copy. It costs only N500! New deals, of course, will be struck. And new relationships ignited. Business ideas will flow and new business lessons learnt. All that is required is maximum attention as soon as our Guest Speaker and Chairman and others mount the rostrum.
We aint got any dress code. However, a touch of red will be immensely appreciated. Maximum security and fun are guaranteed. Civility and courteousness of the highest order and grade will be doled out to our esteemed guests by our ushers. Our event planners, Abelinis, The Project Marshals, are also working round the clock to ensure that nothing is left undone, no mistake is made and that anything unplanned for will not rear its head from anywhere or corner.
Those that graced the first three editions know that our guiding principle has always been to under promise, but over perform. And because we also hate to blow our trumpets, we shall leave you to be the judge after Friday, June 19, 2015, at NIIA, Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, by 11am prompt.
For those who have not yet gotten either their normal invitation card or the e-invite, all that is required is a call to either 08033062157 or 08023002092 and everything will be sorted out. But if you stay around Ojodu, you can walk down to our corporate office, at 29, Budland Street, Grammar School Bus Stop, Ojodu, Ikeja, Lagos for one. In saving the best for the last, the opening and closing prayers will be handled by Apostle Anselm Madubuko and Bishop Isaac Idahosa respectively.
See ya and stay blessed!
