Networking is considered as an essential professional competency for entrepreneurs and career professionals at all levels. Beyond networking, there is need to deepen conversations that create, cultivate and capitalize on the cross-functional relationships that get things done, affect the bottom line and transform their individual perspectives.


Mentorship is a personal enhancement strategy whereby an experienced person facilitates personal development in an inexperienced individual by sharing knowledge, resources, guidance, wisdom and insight in order for the recipient to minimize risks and mistakes in their career or enterprise endeavors.


In a world where we are connected by the power of technology, mentoring conversations and relationships can be fostered across any distance. This can be achieved real time or asynchronously. However, there is a huge challenge amongst career professionals and entrepreneurs in the best possible way to reach out to their role models via the internet and convert them into mentors. There is also a common challenge in prospective mentors knowing the best practice and tools available in facilitating personal development via social media and technology platforms.


Revaluating Mentorship In The Digital Age: Blueprint & Prospects For Mentees & Mentors Master Class will birth an awareness and possibility of engaging in quality mentoring relationships online and help the participants to foster mentoring practices offline and online. Participants will learn how to differentiate developmental relationships: Knowing the roles Trainers, Coaches, Counselors, Role Models and Mentors play in their career path.

Design, Perception & Identity
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

You need a:  Campus Badge to attend this event.


Founded in 2011 by Rukky Ladoja and Obida Obioha, Grey’s thematic collections revolve around the concept of simultaneously globalising and localising African culture using contemporary fashion as a medium.  Taking ideas or stories rooted in the traditions of Ladoja’s culture and making them globally relatable.
 
Our priority is to explore ways to make culturally inspired fashion approachable while providing feminine style options for women who are looking to incorporate beautiful fragments of African society directly into their cosmopolitan wardrobe. Previous seasons have seen collections based on basket weaving and traditional royal accessories local to western African cultures and identities; breaking the norms and ideas behind these traditions into bold woven and screen prints while keeping the shapes contemporary and functional.
 
Over the years, as well as presenting at the prestigious Lagos fashion and design week annually, Grey has had successful presentations at the international fashion showcase at London fashion week. It has also focused its marketing and sales strategies towards trade shows such as the WWD Women’s Magic trade show in Las Vegas. Rukky Ladoja has won local awards for her contemporary designs and for being a pioneer in the Nigerian ready to wear fashion industry including the British council Young creative entrepreneuraward in 2013.
 
In this panel session we explore how design helps to construct and inform our identity and perception, including the following:
  • Using clothing as communication:communicating gender, social identity and consumer culture.
  • Are you what you wear? Dissecting the identity of the fashion label vis a vis the identity of the label’s target customer.
  • The evolution of a brand’s aesthetic,including the impact of appealing to an international market on your brand’s aesthetic and design.
  • How creative elements in the visual identities of brands affects consumer perception (luxury v high street /affordable)

Storytelling Through Film - A Panacea
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

You need a:  Campus Badge to attend this event.


Movies and all forms of visual storytelling, have always been more than just a tool for entertainment. Over the years, film has been used as a tool for social re-engineering, promoting themes which form the notions and opinions of viewers. Film often forms the first impressions people have for other societies and cultures and  when utilized skillfully, has proven to be a huge tool in social development.


The current state of our nation and society, is heartbreaking. There is a crisis of fitting the identities of the individual (ethnicities) within the constructs of the community (nation). Internally, there are so many lines that divide. This is evident oftentimes in the manner in which harmless conversations on social media rapidly degenerate into a hate filled back and forth, which often play along the prejudiced lines of tribe, religion and societal status. 


Nollywood has a huge role to play by emphasizing storytelling as a tool for nation building. Telling the right stories and promoting positive themes, can provoke necessary discussions among individuals, in homes, offices and streets. Passing the right information will go a long way in correcting wrongly held views and notions, while promoting a society that is more accommodating, and tolerant to the individual as well as the society as a whole.
