champion 3On May 6, 2017 I was privileged to be part of the speakers at THE CHAMPIONS SUMMIT hosted by Aniekean Usoro. Here are some of the statements I made.

There’s more to you than meets the eyes. #ChampionSummit

What gives you value in the market place is not your certificate but your skill. Your certificate will give you the opportunity to be at the interview. Your knowledge will give you the job. But it’s your skill that will guarantee you a promotion.

The world doesn’t pay you for what you know. They pay you for what you do. The world admires professors but they pay professionals. Stop being a planner. Start being a performer.

There are local skills and there are global skills. Unless you intend to export your local skill to the global market, focus on developing and honing skills that are of global value. Examples of global skills that will put you on world stage? Writing. Music. ICT based skills. Acting.champion 4
