ABOUT FREE CONFERENCE
With the major shakeup going on in the economy and even the irrational and not too favourable decisions taken by the management of certain organizations, what your career experience turns out to be is largely influenced by your response to your realities.
The FREE Conference is a platform created by the convener to help people move from “Enduring to Enjoying” what they do by either becoming more efficient or moving from being “Employees to Employers”.
FREE Conference is a programme set to address progress toward economic growth and social inclusion based on the following statistics:
- 6 in 10 individuals have challenges making decisions on what career path to take.
- 7 in 10 professionals have shared some difficulty in making career transitions.
- 8 of 10 cannot live their dreams.
The objective of the conference is to liberate the average Nigerian from psychological, environmental and socio cultural limitations.
Furthermore, we aim to challenge working professionals and business owners to strive toward exceptional performance at the jobs and businesses they are responsible for and use this as a driving force to improve personal productivity, organizational productivity and ultimately, national growth.
That’s the essence of the conference – to get people FREE. For the activation of dormant capacities and talents within people.
This segment will be anchored by the Convener and the Keynote Speakers of the Day carefully chosen based on their experience, exposure and achievements. The aim of this segment is to get the participants inspired toward personalizing the benefits of the event.
We realize that inspiration is never enough to achieve the desired change. Most events are geared towards inspiring participants and the usual result is that enthusiasm amongst the participants fizzles out shortly after the event. This segment has been introduced to provide participants with a platform to ask questions and also get instructed on what to do and next steps to take; knowledge areas; needed skills and desirable life.
The Panellists are being carefully identified and selected based on their demonstrated exposure and competence in Nigeria, with exposure and willingness to be involved with building capacity amongst youth. And most importantly living Free.
The previous editions of the ‘The Free Conference’ which was held in Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan, Port Harcourt, Calabar and Uyo in 2017, averaged about 10,000 participants and there has been positive feedback from participants and several organizations regarding the impact of the conference.
This year, the Free Conference has also held in Lagos, Bayelsa, Ibadan, Abuja and Abeokuta, Akure and South Africa, and is scheduled to hold in Chicago on the 3rd of November 2018. positioned to attract attendees with the single aim of contributing to the development and emergence of excellent professionals in the workplace and business by inspiring them to enjoy rather than endure what they do.
