If you only had 15 minutes, would you be able to create a sustainable business proposal?
Here is the gist, a team led by Ms. Chioma Aniagolu successfully pulled this off at the MTN ICT Business Skills Training, which took place in Lafia, Nasarawa State. The competition had three other teams who presented their ideas after brainstorming for 15 minutes. Some of the ideas presented were waste management/recycling, melon seed farming and fish farming but one idea stood out because of its focus on addressing societal problems in Nasarawa. Sorry, we can’t spill their idea.
Just before the battle of business experts, ICT and Business experts taught hundreds of participants on how to position their businesses in the minds of the target audience and how to make money using business skills and digital tools.
The two-day training witnessed the attendance of the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism Nasarawa State, Mr. Allahnana Attah; Director, MTN Foundation, Mrs. Aishatu Sadauki, OON; Director, MTN Foundation, Mr. Dennis Okoro and Emir of Akiri, H.R.H Alh. Umaru Suleiman who presented a certificate of participation to the participants.
One of the participants, Mrs. Stella Ajige who runs a fashion brand applauded MTN Nigeria for this platform. “I believe that technology has come to stay and our brands will grow bigger if we leverage on this, I have learned about website and content creation that will appeal to my audience, my goal is to be visible, especially to the world and I know this training will help my business grow.”
Not only did they go home with the knowledge of ICT and Business Skills, some outstanding guests left the conference hall with exciting gifts that will always remind them that MTN Nigeria cares.
