In its continued commitment to empowering dreams and enriching lives, MTN in the last four years has brought in renowned speakers like Les Brown, Chris Gardner and David Plouffe to speak to Nigerians on topics bordering on entrepreneurship, strategy, motivation amongst others. Formerly tagged the MTN Motivational Series, the project has been revamped and repackaged as the MTN Leadership Seminar to bring more value to her customers and the general public.
The MTN Leadership Seminar is the first of its kind in Nigeria with the objective of:
-Enabling MTN customers move on ahead in life and business
-Inspiring the CAN-DO spirit in them.
-Creating a conducive atmosphere for networking
-Creating opportunities for budding entrepreneurs through the N30 Million Grant and a 6 month mentorship programme with Dr. Farrah Gray.
This year’s Seminar promises to be bigger and better and will feature Dr. Farrah Gray, a young American businessman, investor, philanthropist, author, syndicated columnist, and motivational speaker who became a millionaire at the tender age of 14. The seminar will hold from Tuesday, April 24, 2012 to Friday, April 27, 2012 in 2 locations in Nigeria. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Breaking the Success Myth’.
The MTN Leadership Seminar will also feature activities beyond talk and will include a first-of-its kind initiative called the MTN Budding Entrepreneur Business Grant. The initiative will see 3 entrepreneurs go home with the sum of N20 Million for the best idea and N5 Million each for 2nd and 3rd great ideas respectively in order to pursue their business ventures. Avid social network faithfuls would have noticed ‘If I had 30 million Naira’ twitter hash-tag and Facebook question which served as a pre-cursor to the initiative with Nigerians of all works of life dropping their two cents on the topic.
