In an innovative and impactful way, Ciuci (pronounced see-you-see) Consulting, Nigeria’s leading Strategy and Consumer Intelligence Company, celebrated its 10th year anniversary by partnering with The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) to honour selected enterprises through the launching of the Nigeria Business Composite 10 (NiBC 10) on Tuesday, September 26th, 2017.
The NiBC 10 is a selection of 10 successful Nigerian Enterprises who have exhibited high potentials for growth and have over the years maintained a brilliant track record. This landmark event was aimed at celebrating these companies whilst inspiring confidence in the Nigerian society and its potential to produce thriving businesses.
Having carried out over 200 projects in the last 10 years, Ciuci Consulting has a proven track record of positively impacting businesses and the society at large by supporting enterprises that contribute to Nigeria’s socio-economic development.
The event, which was very well planned, had guests expressing their experience with words such as inspiring, transformational and meaningful. The event which lasted for 2 hours, included speeches from Pai Gamde, the Acting Head, Corporate Services, NSE; Nimi Akinkugbe, CEO of Bestman Games; Chukwuka Monye, the Managing Partner of Ciuci Consulting; and a documentary that told the story of Ciuci’s journey so far.
Speaking on the initiative, the Acting Head, Corporate Services, NSE, Pai Gamde said “We are delighted to partner with Ciuci Consulting on the NiBC 10 initiative. It aligns with our commitment to promoting and supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Nigeria, by providing a framework that can help mentor SMEs in the country. At the NSE, we have a strong support system for such companies as our ASEM board provides them a platform for growth and expansion. A platform we hope these companies will leverage in the coming months.”
According to Chukwuka Monye, “Nigerian entrepreneurs need to see examples of businessmen and women that are working hard and creating successful businesses in the same environment that many fear to explore. We have worked with each of the 10 companies who are at different growth stages and are pleased to recognize them and encourage them for what they do”.
The NiBC10 Companies are House of Tara, Bestman Games, Iya Foods, L’Avyanna, Everyday Supermarkets, DBH Solutions, Ugo Monye Limited, Healthcare Leadership Academy, Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria and Massey Street Children’s Hospital.
According to Charles Dimnwaobi, CEO of Everyday Supermarkets, “We are honoured to be one of the NiBC 10. I must say that I am proud that Ciuci Consulting is homegrown. This is one professional service brand that offers world-class services and understands the local environment and most importantly, they understand their clients”.
