On Friday, November 13, 2020, Ecobank Nigeria held a virtual webinar to train its customers and other Nigerians in the cadre of employee or salary earners on how to earn extra income.
The aim of the programme is to prepare participants on ways to be financially stable next year, especially after the year 2020 has been challenging because of the global health crisis of COVID-19.
“2020 has been a very challenging year for most people, fraught with different events both globally and locally. These have in different ways, affected corporates, small businesses, and salary earners.
“Most significant is the effect the situation has had on the economic and financial positions of salary earning and self-employed persons.
“As a result of this, and with the year 2021 a few weeks away, it seemed timely to hold this webinar in November. Individuals, whether employees or business owners, ought to begin planning for the new year and need to have proper and adequate information as to how to start or go from having a side hustle to developing multiple streams of income.
“Furthermore, the Employee Summit will offer Nigerians, financial services and solutions designed to support and enhance their lifestyles and ensure their sustainable growth,” the Head of Consumer Banking at Ecobank Nigeria, Mrs Korede Demola-Adeniyi, said.
The event themed Positioning for 2021: From Side Hustle to Multiple Streams of Income, was attended by salary earners, small businesses, self-employed, amongst others.
Participants taught how to start a side hustle, develop multiple streams of income, plan for the future and develop proper money management skills to withstand further economic shocks and dislocations, with speakers like Transformation Teacher and Success Coach, Dr Harry Benjamin; AgriPreneur/Chief Executive Officer, FarmCredit Nigeria, Afioluwa Mogaji and Research and Business Development Manager, Ecobank Nigeria, Kunle Edun.
