The next presentation was by Mr. Fela Durotoye. Mr. Durotoye urged the audience to focus on brand beliefs and value add, what your brand believes in will set the pace for what your market will believe in.
Mr. Lanre Olusola spoke on the importance of Wisdom, creating and preserving your name, recognising your gift, using it to serve humanity and solve problems at deep levels.
Mrs. Udo Okonjo spoke on developing key strategies to expand market reach. She also said that audacious branding is an idea that helps you choose who and how to play within your industry, identifying and developing the right mindset it takes to win.
Mr. Olawale Ayilara stimulated the audience to think beyond their environment, stating that your brand can be present in a particular location but have a mindset that is not tied to or limited to that location.
