On Friday 21st & Saturday 22nd February 2014, top executives and entrepreneurs across Lagos attended a unique experiential two day leadership and professional development program at the Wheatbaker hotel in Ikoyi, themed “Ignite the Champion Within.”
This event was created by the Ignite Success and Leadership Development Academy under the leadership of Udo Okonjo, (Chief Igniter and C.E.O of Fine and Country West Africa), along with Guest Igniters Bob Etherington (international Peak Performance Executive Coach and Trainer), Atlanta based Kwavi Agbeyegbe (Vitality and Health Coach), and Tokunbo Osunbayo, (a Robert Kiyosaki, Cash Flow Financial Teacher and Facilitator).
On day one of the Ignite the Champion Within, having being welcomed and serenaded by a world class saxophonist, delegates had an opportunity to pose for individual profile shots by the UK based photographer Dianna Bonner. The Igniters with more than 100 years of experience between them, were subsequently sworn in by a lawyer in front of the audience, and made a pledge to provide the highest level of service to the delegates. The delegates also made a formal pledge to embark on a journey of discovery with absolute sincerity, commitment and responsibility.
Some of the topics covered at Ignite the Champion Within included Success is a Choice, The Champions Pathway, Success Conditioning, The Secrets of Influence and Persuasion, The Six Scientific Laws of Influence, Ignite your Finances, Money Personalities, Reach for the Stars, Ignite Vitality and Health, Ignite Excellence, the Six Degrees of Separation and the principles of Successful Networking.
The positive feedback from the delegates was overwhelming. According to the delegates, the event had exceeded their expectations and changed their mindsets dramatically in a short time. The combination of interactive engagement, live music, and use of visual props aided understanding and concentration. Delegates particularly enjoyed the visual and interactive illustrations, personal examples and challenging statements from the Igniters.
To consolidate the transformational learning experience that started over a two period for the delegates, the Ignite the Champion Within went the extra mile to set up a follow up and post event online accountability system to enable participants review and engage with each other further. In a month from the event, the delegates will attend a live breakfast meeting to exchange testimonials of practical results or lessons learned over the first 30 days post event.
Delegates in attendance represented a cross section of high profile progressive companies and Institutions, including Giant Beverages Limited, Unilever Nig plc, This Present House, Green Butterfly, Blue Mahogany, Knowledge Station International, Insourcing Limited, Smart Partners Consulting Limited, Constrad Multi concept, Stanbic IBTC, Crisp solutions, SS Dental Clinic Ltd, Nigerian Bottling company, Kenna & Associates, Templars & Fine and Country.
Udo Okonjo the Chief Igniter and Visionary behind the Ignite the Champion Within said she was extremely pleased with the incredible success of the premier edition of Ignite the Champion Within event and mentioned that this is just the beginning of a series of success events by Ignite Success and Leadership Development Academy to transform the minds of emerging business leaders and serious professionals.
