Every time we discuss 180 Degrees, my whole being smiles. From the very first day we discussed the concept, I knew that myself and Deolu Akinyemi had eventually discovered the platform we always discussed — a platform on which we can deliver change opportunities to the world, beginning with young Nigerians. And as they say, a lot of water has gone under the bridge… first in Lagos on May 1; then in Ife on August 2; now, the 180 Degrees train moves to Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye!
The date is Saturday, November 11 2006, time is 11:00am and the three speakers for the event will be Prof. Pat Utomi, Adeolu Akinyemi and ‘Gbenga Sesan — and each speaker comes with a distinct message that will help connect you with the change you require. While you can read more about 180 Degrees at My180Degrees.com, the goal of 180 Degrees is to inspire personal change that can influence your other areas of intervention.
So, for those who’ve been asking about the next edition, here comes. Ago Iwoye is in Ogun state so its accessible to those who’ve been writing from Ondo, Osun, Oyo and Lagos states in particular. To register, click here, and please note that the seminar will kick off at 11:00am prompt. Ask those who’ve been to any 180 Degrees session and they’ll tell you what you’ll miss with each tick of the clock from the take-off time.
Between now and November 11, I will be speaking at some other important seminars/events, and it’d be great to meet up with you if you’re in any of the locations. Please see below:
