Tony Elumelu Foundation Message
Tony Elemule Foundation message for the month
Now into the second quarter of 2021, much is being said about solidifying plans for the rest of the year. We remain awed by the unprecedented ways African entrepreneurs have adapted to our new normal — both in scope and scale — to help sustain lives and livelihoods having been severely impacted by the pandemic.
While many business leaders are only too willing to share their leadership strategy, Peter Ashade, Group Chief Executive Officer, United Capital, gets admirably candid with us in an exclusive interview and provides rousing food for thought. In the wake of United Capital’s N3.12bn recorded revenue in the first quarter of 2021, he credits the ability to leverage opportunities that were created by the pandemic and explored a variety of business anecdotes for entrepreneurs to emulate in order to and strengthen their performance in business and personal contexts.
In this issue, our CEO Ifeyinwa Ugochukwu offers piercing insight on how to collectively achieve a future that is resilient and sustainable, while adroitly emphasizing the need to energise, uplift and empower human capital in order to meet our growing demands in Africa.
