In a bid to celebrate successful entrepreneurs or successful personalities, Happenings.com.ng hosted RED Managing Partner, Chude Jideonwo on Sunday, March 8, 2015 at The Colonades in Ikoyi.
The show which was also put together to celebrate his 30th birthday anniversary, kicked off with a testimonial session from some of his friends and fans who have had an encounter with him.
Joy Isi Bewaji hosted the discussion session with Chude, with two readings from Chude’s ‘Are We The Turning Point Generation?’
Chude shared profound insights while answering questions about the Nigerian culture, running a successful business in Nigeria and the role of citizens in delivering the Nigeria we want. I took note of the points below;
On the issue of “Nigeria’s Culture”, he said: “What we Nigerians call our ‘culture’ is mostly an excuse for what we can be as a people.”
On Active Citizenry, he said: “All we need do is be active citizens, ask questions and be involved in conversations that affect us.”
On Business, he said: “Nigerian businesses fail because people don’t know exactly how businesses succeed in Nigeria.” Emphasising that we need more case studies, mentors and materials that will help young Nigerians engage and succeed in business in Nigeria.
The event was also graced by the Chairman of happenings.com.ng, Chief Edirin Abamwa.
