Many organizations in climes other than Africa have successfully existed over many years; outliving the founders of the organizations. In Nigeria, statistics have shown that over 60% of start-ups die within the first five years of their existence. Amongst the reasons adduced for this saddening report is the failure of required legal and governance structures that will make for the proper establishment and running of the organizations for growth and posterity. Jim Collins once said: having the right set of people on the ‘bus’ is one of the most important factors for an enterprise that will be great; ensuring that the governance structure of any organization is properly determined will guaranty and enhance its success and sustainability’’.

Hence this event is for Business owners, business managers, entrepreneurs, legal advisers, company secretaries, women entrepreneurial groups doing business in Nigeria.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/12″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”FACILITATORS” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center|color:%23000000″ css_animation=”fadeInLeft”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][ct_team_member image=”2202″ img_size=”full” title=”Mrs. Abiola Laseinde” position=”(LL.M, BL, FCIS) CEO of Edniesel Consulting”][vc_empty_space][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]Abiola is a lawyer, Governance Professional and strategic thought leader with over 19 years of experience garnered from different industries in Nigeria, with a stint in Dubai, UAE.
