Business executives, entrepreneurs and analysts are set to discuss business development and national prosperity at the fifth Vantage Forum event, organized by The Elevation Church(TEC). The event is set to hold this Thursday, January 31, 2019 by 9am at the Pistis Conference Centre, 1 Resurrection Drive, second turning after Oando, Jakande, Lekki Lagos.
Vantage Forum is a high-profile business and economic outlook event tailored to mid-level managers, business executives, existing and aspiring entrepreneurs, and C-level executives.
According to the Lead Pastor of TEC, Godman Akinlabi, “Vantage Forum is an annual entrepreneurial advancement initiative of The Elevation Church focused on empowering individuals to achieve the highest levels of distinction in their businesses and careers through provision of resources such as business seminars, workshops, and mentorship programs.
“The quality of the discourse makes it an event more suited to senior business executives, owners of medium-sized businesses and high net-worth individuals”.
This year’s edition will be looking at ‘2019 and Beyond: Stimulating National Prosperity’ and will engage respected individuals who have been carefully selected to ensure balanced analysis and discussions.
According to the Chief Operating Officer of the church, Pastor Tunji Iyiola, “Vantage Forum started in 2014 when it became clear that there was a knowledge gap between the policy makers, economists and those who were actually in business.
“We saw the need for a business outlook event that focused on the analysis of the economic and political terrain with a view to giving businesspersons a roadmap to run with for the year. It is hard to win a race when you are running blind”.
The event will feature Group CEO, Emerging African Capital Group Investments Ltd, Toyin Sanni; MD, ARM-Harith Infrastructure, Opuiyo Oforiokuma;
Economist & Chief Consultant BAA Consults Limited, Biodun Adedipe; MD, Inlaks Limited, Femi Adeoti, and a host of experts in the business, financial and economic sectors to discuss trends and strategies to excel in business this year.
One of the invited speakers, Oforiokuma, remarked that the church has a role to play in the marketplace.
According to Oforiokuma, who will be speaking on the role of infrastructure as an enabler to business and national development, infrastructure is a direct contributor to national GDP growth.
‘We will provide insights into why infrastructure is such an enabler. People will leave that day, not just better informed, but even more committed to joining hands to improve the infrastructure situation in the society,” he added.
Previous editions of the Vantage Forum had featured eminent personalities in the business world, including the Chairperson of First Bank, Ibukun Awosika; CEO of Economic Associates, Ayo Teriba, MD of SystemSpecs, John Obaro; Group MD and CEO, FCMB, Ladi Balogun; and CEO of Financial Derivatives, Bismarck Rewane
