The annual event, in its 6th edition, is a capacity building program designed to reduce the growing unemployment rate in Nigeria.

It assembled top HR executives, various captains of industries, top organizations, and entrepreneurs, to coach prospective employees on; thereby breaching the gap between employers, employees, and jobseekers; and providing invaluable growth opportunities, mentorship for students, youths, and jobs (white and blue collar) on the spot.

The audience who were coached in segments on different employability skills and HR antics were also thrilled to a series of panel sessions ranging from ‘The Bold move for harnessing and enhancing new business opportunities’ to ‘The Bold move for Corporate Governance and Leadership’ and ‘The Bold move for Women in Business’

Amongst the career coaches were Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu; Chairman, Lagos State Internal Revenue (LIRS), Mr Ayodele Subair; Chairman/CEO, Aquila Group & Quilox, Mr Shina Peller; CEO, NairaBet, Otunba Akin Alabi; Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos, Professor Toyin Ogundipe and many more
