Unity Bank has partnered Young Professionals Breakfast Roundtable to mentor youths in career development.
The Managing Director of Unity Bank, Mrs Tomi Somefun, who spoke at the 2018 edition of the youth programme in Lagos, enjoined participants to see the “pursuit of greatness as a process rather than a one-off-event”.
She was among the over 50 chief executives of companies and ventures that facilitated the programme.
The programme, tagged: ‘YP 2018’, was the third edition and Mrs. Somefun has facilitated all the sessions in the past three years.
Unity Bank’s commitment matches the enthusiasm of promoter of the Young Professions Breakfast Roundtable, Wale Adenuga, a multi-talented entrepreneur, whose initiative assembles an array of accomplished professionals cutting across sectors periodically to mentor up-coming professionals.
For Mrs. Somefun, the motivation to participate as one of the facilitators of the programme lay in the discovery of the impact mentors have had in redirecting the mentees towards the options they could leverage to attain success in life.
The disposition, according to Mrs. Somefun, also aligned with the thinking in Unity Bank, which enabled the bank to make significant impact in the youth market through the introduction of youth-centric product, particularly the recently launched UniFi app, as a model for promoting financial inclusion among the unbanked youth/students.
UniFi is a banking product tailored to allow youths to carry out financial transactions with ease. It is developed as a lifestyle app to enable customers do more banking on digital platform and from anywhere, anytime in their comfort zones.
