About Me

As an undergraduate, I had the privilege of attending two international conferences (Total Summer School and World Business Dialogue) in France and Germany respectively fully sponsored by two multinational companies (Total E&P and Lufthansa Airline) operating in Nigeria. This was a rare thing for someone who grew up in a remote town in the sub-national region of the country. I have also spent the past nine years after graduation working for two other multinationals (Procter and Gamble (P&G) and GB Foods Africa in Food and Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry.

Subsequently, I teamed up with a friend to co-found Hopefield Network as a platform to help other young people maximize their potentials.

I am also a Corporate Member of the Nigerian Society of Engineers and Chartered with the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria.
