Women as Leaders: Pictures from GOTNI Leaders Forum Episode 7

It was a pink themed day at the Leaders Forum for March, 9th, 2015 that marked the celebration of women in line with the International Women Day all over the world. We took time to acknowledge that women are STRENGTH IN VELVET GLOVE as GOTNI celebrates "Women as Leaders".

The evening started with warm music that inspired Nigeria's beauty from contribution from women as the Compere, Nike Aloba took the stage and in her skillful manner made all participants understand the mood of the day.

The first plenary session about the International Women's day was presented by Nkiru Linus-Okorie, as she opened up on the reason for the celebration and this session dovetailed into the panel discussion session.

The discussion centred around : Why men frown at women participating in politics, If women make better leaders than men?, How men can support women participation in leadership and politics amongst others.

Panelists

 It was a heated and very educative session as panelists identified a number of factors drawing from the questions and all other participant also shared their opinions. In all, young people showed enthusiasm at the concept of women in leadership and more men were receptive and showed support to women in politics.

Women participants were also charged not to play second fiddle but find their uniqueness while men were encouraged to support women and not restrict them. 

Members were dressed with a touch of pink to mark this special day that celebrates the contribution of women to humanity especially in Nigeria.

Mr. Linus Okorie took time in closing to appreciate his wife and inspired other young leaders to ensure they appreciate the women in their lives, wives, mothers, sisters etc.

It was heart warming to also watch a 2 minutes video clip that had 8 men gives shout outs to women.

In all, the message rang through - that women are the soul and strength of any society and must be appreciated and allowed to be who they are made to be.

Strategy, Social Media and Leadership Development with Lisa L. Flowers, Muhammed Babandede, Linus Okorie at GOTNI Leaders Forum

It was a special GOTNI Leaders Forum yesterday, Mon. Feb 23 when  two professionals trained participants. With the theme "Strategy, Social Media and Leadership development", there was a Social Media strategy session, facilitated by American Social Media coach Lisa L. Flowers and there was a leadership strategy session handled by DCG, Operations and passports, Mr. Muhammed Babandede MFR. 

The sessions xrayed why any project must be done with a goal and target at heart amongst the fact that creative thinking and communication must go hand-in-hand. President of GOTNI, Linus Okorie was also at hand to state that Nigerian youth hold the key to a developed Nigerian and must decide to lead in their daily endeavours and interactions intentionally. So many participants who spoke  to a GOTNI reporter as well as AIT reporter who interviewed them, explained their willingness to put to work tips imbibed. 
Reacting to the question "Since everyone knows how to use the Social networking sites, why do we need a Social Media strategist"?, Flowers answered by saying "if we all can drive our cars, why do we need auto mecahnics"...This and more were great fall outs of the extremely exciting Leaders Forum session that will be talked about for several months ahead and influence lasting a long time.
Participants left knowing that Social media is a tool to be deployed meaningfully and positively as much as knowing that success in life is planned and not accidental.
