On Friday, 22nd April, 2016, several brilliant Nigerian minds and alumni of the University of Bradford, School of Management, gathered at the Jade palace, Adeola Odeku, Victoria Island, Lagos for the Alumni Association Annual Lecture Event which turned out to be a evening of fun, friendly re-unions, networking and laughter.


The Alumni President, Henry Ikem Obih in his opening speech which was delivered by the Vice-President, Sola Olubadejo, expressed how for 50 years the University of Bradford’s School of Management, has drawn young men and women from all over the world including Nigeria and has sent forth alumni who carry the School of Management’s dynamic and entrepreneurial spirit with them as they pursue their lives and careers to all parts of the world.

This year, the theme centred on ‘Entrepreneurship’ and in attendance were two wonderful speakers who delivered excellent lectures on the topic especially as it revolved around doing business in Nigeria. The first speaker, Mrs. Ukinebo Dare, CEO POISE Graduate Finishing School and also a proud alumni of the School of Management delivered a paper on “Impression Management and Networking” while the keynote speech was delivered by Mrs. Ndidi Nwuneli MFR.

Mrs. Ndidi, one of the biggest social impact accelerators in Nigeria, founder of LEAP Africa,   Ndu Ike Akunuba (NIA), co-founder of AACE Food Processing & Distribution Ltd. (AACE Foods), and one of the directors of Sahel Capital & Advisory Partners, an advisory and private equity firm in Nigeria, which focuses on the agribusiness and manufacturing sectors delivered her paper on “Consume Local” – How to tap in as an Entrepreneur”.

Mrs. Ndidi brought to the fore her passion for the Agriculture sector in Nigeria and shared the immense opportunities available to would be participators in the agric business. Mrs. Ndidi also shared her experience with AACE Foods and the challenges the company had to overcome while executing their business strategies.

Nigeria remains a viable source for many raw materials to the international market and our exports will boom if entrepreneurs focused on  the agriculture business in Nigeria.

Both presentations were brilliant and indeed impactful. In attendance, also were other alumni from the School of Management who represented across board, many professionals from various industries such as the Oil and Gas, Telecoms, Legal and Banking industries. The Bradford School of Management has indeed groomed many Nigerian professionals who are contributing immensely to the Nigerian economy and society at large.

The event will be hosted yearly with the aim of exploring and making available resources that can help alumni whether old or new develop and contribute to the community and the University of Bradford. Also to provide an unequalled opportunity to network, see old friends, meet new ones, learn about the alumni’s recent advances, and participate in discussions about some of the most important issues facing our Nation.
