Remember Biola Alabi? She used to be one of the biggest names in Broadcasting in Africa.  She is the former Managing Director of M-Net Africa. Now she is launching a new leadership development project which she tags, Grooming for Greatness. 

Biola AlabiThe year long programme she says commences with a 3-day on-boarding event, which will bring leaders across sectors to share their experiences and expertise, and groom the next generation of African business leaders. The 3-day workshop and seminar will also identify exceptional talents who will be mentored by Mrs. Alabi and her associates over the next year.

The workshop will deal practical sessions to build the capacity of participants with access to relevant and outstanding role models and leadership tools, including recommended literature, through which they can widen their knowledge base whilst simultaneously drawing inspiration and ideas.

“We have spent the past year working on this crucial intervention. It’s important to give a new generation of African leaders the practical, applicable skills that can truly transform the continent,” Alabi, who is also a Yale fellow, said. We want to cultivate an intuitive African programme for young and aspiring professionals and entrepreneurs that recognises the challenges and opportunities inherent in embracing personal greatness in this continent.”

A group of no more than 20 hand-picked participants will be guided through the curated programme of workshops, discussions and seminars to help harness their potential and discover greatness. The subjects to be addressed includes; Immersive leadership, strength based leadership, leading with purpose, building a meaningful career, building powerful networks and creating influence. There will also be one on one mentoring which will be an intricate feature of the program.
