There is an appointed time for everything under the sun. There’s a time to sow, and a time to reap. There’s a time for the smaller things that lay a proper foundation, and there’s that time that the BIG thing has to happen. Having been asked a similar question in at least six (6) recent interviews, I wish to lift the lid on the answer — well, at least lift the lid for the aroma to fill the air. The question? “Apart from PIN, what new thing is ‘Gbenga Sesan up to?” Something B.I.G.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working with the duo of Seyi and Yinka (those are real names but that would be all the information on them, for now). Our work goes into the second phase this coming week and I’m so excited to the point of being tempted to let the cat out of the bag. The idea has now been crystallized and we are putting professional touches to the plan. The resources come next, and then implementation — to be followed by the act of establishing the BIG deal.
A little clue: the BIG plan will add glamour to the noble (and often quiet) act of bringing value to table in terms of the use of ICTs. The way it will work is such that everyone (well, anyone who watches TV) will be part of the BIG plan that will have Nigerians and others across the West African coast sitting on the edge of their seats each week. While I acknowledge that a lot of work is still being done, it feels great to have seen the BIG idea move beyond words and meetings.
Watch out, it’s BIG… it’s time to do something BIG!
