Custodian Investment Plc has introduced mentorship conference for youths as part of its commitment towards youth empowerment.
The third edition of the programme was held over the weekend at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, which was attended by 150 professionals.
The MD/CEO of Custodian Investment Plc, Wole Oshin, said: “We realised that the youths are going about with the negative feeling that our generation has failed them and believing that the future does not look bright for them. So, we came up with the idea of a mentorship conference to bolster their confidence.
“The overriding idea is to connect the youths physically to people who can mentor them by taking them on a business journey with the hope that someday, they would have positive testimonies to share.”
Participants were exposed to people like Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, Senior Economic Advisor at Africa Economic Development Policy Initiative (AEDPI); Mr. Leke Alder, Principal Consultant, Alder Consulting; Mr. Tonye Cole, co-founder and former Group Executive Director, Sahara Group; Mrs. Tara Fela-Durotoye, Chief Executive Officer of the House of Tara and Richard Mofe-Damijo, a Nollywood actor and film producer.
