However, we also have sessions that cover lifestyle issues such as our Health & Wellness session, designed to teach attendees how to stay mentally and physically healthy as they develop their careers. We even have a professional Style and Beauty Night to cover fashion and makeup in the workplace. This session will be hosted by Adama Indimi in partnership with Fashpa, Jide of St.Ola and Skin 101, Abuja.”

Previous editions have been held in Lagos (September 2015 – video here) and Accra (January 2016 – photos here). Former participants have described it as a life changing experience.
