And so, @custodianplc's #MentorsConference begins! @lekealder is in the building!

#Nigeria #Mentoring
Mr. Wole Oshin, GMD @custodianplc shares his career story. He dreamt of being the MD of an insurance company at age 18! Watch the video live stream on @custodianplc's Facebook Page:

At 27, I ensured I had all my professional qualifications. I was a chartered insurer and had an MBA. But, I've learnt in my career that there is no "best" time to start a business or career. Don't give in to fear or #socialmedia peer pressure! ~ Wole Oshin #CustodianMentors
I worked in an insurance company for free for a year, because there were no jobs. In that year, I worked like an entrepreneur and set up a new unit that subsists today. Based on that, my employment was backdated by a year and I received a promotion! ~ Wole Oshin #CustodianMentors
Surprises happen. For instance, a government policy can change your business plan. Strategise and forge ahead. Don't retreat. ~ Wole Oshin #CustodianMentors
What gives me sleepless nights? Ensuring @CustodianPLC's culture remains true to its roots. It's not enough for a business to have a big name. What does the internal culture look like? ~ Wole Oshin #CustodianMentors
Pay attention to the nitty-gritty; the details. Little things matter in a business. If you're so focused on your vision and lose sight of the small things; those items may come back to bite you. ~ Wole Oshin #CustodianMentors
Businesses transition. What you're doing now may be completely different from what you do in future. Sieze opportunities. When you notice demand in an area, explore it. ~ Wole Oshin #CustodianMentors
Don't be afraid of reinventing yourself. Sometimes opportunities lie in a completely different area from what you're doing now. Be prepared to shift gears. ~ Wole Oshin #CustodianMentors
Dr. @obyezeks takes the stage at @custodianplc's #MentorsConference. Watch the video live stream on Custodian's Facebook Page:

My life story would be incomplete without my upbringing. My father always said, "We may not be rich in finance, but we are rich in values." ~ @obyezeks #MentorsConference
My mom was a pillar at home. You must marry someone who supports you. @obyezeks #MentorsConference
My dad always said, "A good name is better than choice silver. A good name will give you access to things of value." @obyezeks #MentorsConference
Integrity is not complete until it is consistent. @obyezeks #MentorsConference
My dad always rang a scripture in my ears daily, "Seest thou a man diligent in his work; he will stand before kings and not mean men." @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
My dad taught me to never expect an honour or reward that I had not earned. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
At the age of 10, I made a promise to my parents to take responsibility for my chores at home. It was good training. I would be punished if I didn't keep my word. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
There must be consequences for bad behaviour. A society that rewards bad behaviour and punishes good is a distorted society. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
At a very young age, my dad exposed me to reading serious business and political journals. I started reading @TheEconomist at a young age. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
All my life experiences made me responsible. It also made me open to contrary viewpoints. In a debate, values are sacrosanct but positions are flexible. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
We must encourage outspokenness in families. If people are not encouraged to debate at home, you can't expect them to speak up on matters of accountability and governance. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
This generation is the most socially networked. Use your power well. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
As an aside, @obyezeks just name-checked @Chydee for positive use of #socialmedia! ☺☺ #CustodianMentors
With collaboration comes great ideas. Being a co-founder of @anticorruption taught me that. Developing the Corruption Performance Index was a high point in my life. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
Never shut down ideas. Explore them. Do in-depth research. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
As you journey in life, destiny helpers will come your way to guide your path. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
My focus on public procurement was premised on the knowledge that in developed countries, leaders don't focus on transactional issues like procurement. They focus on governance. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
Government appointments are acts of service, not rewards. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
I don't do jobs. I do "assignments". Find your assignment in life. Find your purpose. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
If you have a problem in an area, you solve it by finding an expert qualified to do so, not by being sentimental about the problem. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
.@obyezeks shares her experience working with the Ministries of Solid Minerals and Education. I'm thinking that we desperately need to document policy history in #Nigeria! #CustodianMentors
A good society rewards merit. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
The moral of my career story is this: I didn't chase after "career". I didn't "hustle'. I acquired knowledge and I had mentors & parents who helped and inspired me. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
Those who resent the fact that they are being asked to do too much, will one day be grateful for the experience and exposure. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
Watch the Q & A session with @obyezeks on Facebook Live: #CustodianMentors
Eternal vigilance by citizens is the price you pay for liberty. Institutionalisation goes beyond agencies and laws. It requires a demand for accountability by citizens. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors
Your individualism must not become dysfunctional. It's good for competition and distinction but it must not hurt collaboration. This generation needs to collaborate. @obyezeks #CustodianMentors

I have learned how to deploy economy of resources to achieve predetermined goals. ~ @LekeAlder #CustodianMentors
Integrity is a credit facility in business. @LekeAlder #CustodianMentors
Values are the most important thing in business. They set the tone for everything. @LekeAlder #CustodianMentors
Let "Who did this?" be a constant refrain about you in the market. When you do good work, people will ask about you. @LekeAlder #CustodianMentors
You need creativity in business and life. Use your brain cells. @LekeAlder #CustodianMentors
Your vision is on the inside of you. Stop sharing "ideas of ideas". Work out your ideas first. Think through before sharing with others. @LekeAlder #CustodianMentors
When you classify yourself as "youth", when you expect people to do things for you, you limit the heights of your aspiration. @LekeAlder #CustodianMentors
Never be afraid to take on giants. To beat a giant, change the rules of engagement; redefine the game to play to your strengths. @LekeAlder #CustodianMentors
