She Leads Africa took their professional bootcamp, the SheHive, back home to Lagos and killed it! Over 4 days, Lagos was sprinkled with a dose of #AfricanGirlMagic as over 200 women came together to learn, network and boost their careers. The event not only sold out, but also hosted the highest number of attendees of all the She Hives this year!

The popular bootcamp hosted speakers such as:

  • Arese Ugwu – Founder, Smart Money Africa
  • Nimi Akinkugbe – CEO & Founder, Bestman Games
  • Idorenyen Enang – Former MD of L’Oreal West Africa and Samsung West Africa, Regional VP World Federation of Advertisers
  • Adepeju Adebajo – CEO, Lafarge Cement
  • Toyin Odulate – Founder, Olori Cosmetics and Country MD, Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition
  • Bunmi Lawson – CEO, Accion Microfinance Bank

True to SLA’s signature style, the bootcamp was educational yet informal – a safe space for women to learn critical skills in a casual and refreshing environment. At one point, participants were listening to prominent female business leaders; at another, they were taking part in a rap battle to explain why they were #MotherlandMoguls. As one participant enthused, “every session was a HIT back to back.”

The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Tosin Lawson, Creative director of African Things remarked “This has been an amazing experience! I cannot imagine what my business will look like after I implement all the things I’ve learnt.”

For the first time in Nigeria, She Leads Africa also hosted a shopping bazaar called Shop The Hive that showcased 16 women led businesses including the increasingly popular Kinky Apothecary. Vendors like Yimika Awolowo, Founder and Head Chef of Eden Bakery, said they hoped #ShopTheHive would be coming back because they “sold out completely and got to meet customers in person for the first time.”

    Please dear God, let my Future wife be found in such places, not for pics, selfies & show, but for her personal growth, development & contribution to our Union.
    Amen.

    Tuke Morgan’s hair looks so lush in this picture: https://www.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/She-Hive-Lagos-14.jpg
    Love how she has evolved as a creative: from blogging & writing for Bella Naija to playing Sax at their event and for top people like the Vice President of Nigeria.
    I’m sure Networks like She leads Africa keeps her and other female entrepreneurs motivated and driven.
    I will definitely attend the Next one 🙂
