Let’s get to know you better…
My name is Ayodele Adebayo. I am a corporate trainer, I train organizations, business leaders, executives, I train around design thinking and emotional intelligence, how they can bring design thinking and emotional intelligence into business, management, leadership, consulting around whatever thing they are into as a tool for problem solving at any organization. I am certified in design thinking and emotional intelligence.
Let’s talk about the event that will be coming up later this month, what brought the idea of this event?
I have been a fan of a new Africa, right from the time I’ve been in school. I’ve always looked forward to a better Africa, a new opportunity, a privilege for people to grow and develop.
While growing up, I’ve noticed people were always looking forward to a particular time where things will become changed for us in Africa but I’ve realized that year in year out, that change is not forthcoming.
In Africa, we have different kinds of people, different kinds of leadership styles, people who have assumed leadership positions, made promises but things still persist. A lot of solutions have been propounded and you realize that these problems still exist.
So if some of those problems of yester years still persist now then it means that there could actually be something missing from the stand point so that’s where everything actually started from. It is possible for us to come together and look at Africa from another perspective not from the common/general one we all know in order to see how we can proffer solutions to our problems not from the same platform but from another angle entirely.
