Wow…I won’t even mince words when I say the last month or two before our break were stress packed!!! The 2 courses, feasibility study research and write-ups, pitch presentation, and throw in our 9-5pm jobs back at home!?!? After that, I know I can read, analyse, plan, schedule and just plain cross my fingers through nearly anything this life has to throw at me 🙂

Today I’ll touch on one thing…our Pitch Presentation for our various Business Plans (part of our Entrepreneurship Course). For those of us that don’t know, each team had 2weeks to complete a feasibility study on their chosen business venture and give a 5minute pitch presentation to woe our potential customers, investors and partners. The S1 entrepreneurship teams, in my opinion, amazed each other! One line rang through nearly every teams presentation; environmentally conscious, healthy living without lowering basic human standards. A true statement of how much environmental issues spreads across continents.

I found it amazing that was there not only a fervent zeal to impress and convince but our human nature to compete came alive! Tension running up to the final presentations were evident, in and outside the teams but thankfully it took interteam networking, reassuring words, encouraging dry runs, and a fight or two 😉 to keep the ideas rolling at an infectious energy level!

…10 months down, 5 to go…

No wahala, we dey kamkpe!
