ExperientialNG, in line with her goal of providing world class professional dynamic capabilities to Marketing professionals across Africa, would be organising free Strategic training sessions for top African Executives.
It is a programme, in the words of Dr Rotimi Olaniyan, founder and Publisher of ExperientialNG, “marketing or services leader would wish to miss”.
The executive learning sessions would be delivered via ZOOM on May 1, a public holiday in most African countries also tagged workers day. From the quality of registration so far, the programme is poised to witness a unique assemblage of senior executives, and accomplished leaders in sales and marketing, as well as marketing and creative services agencies.
From the highlights given by the organisers, the programme would be a half day of World Class Professional Marketing discourse and practical conversations.
The discussants are expected to showcase valuable learning content from academy’s forthcoming Management & Leadership Skills Development Series, which is an initiative intended to help deepen workplace skills for firms looking to drive strategic advantages and growth through innovation, strategic thinking, top-notch research and practical commercial leadership.
According to Dr Olaniyan, this session is still the academy’s premium master class though free, so it is only open to a select group of attendees that meet the academy’s criteria for relevance, potential impact and contribution.
