One memorable highlight of your career with Baxi?
After completing my degree started my career in the sales department, my goal was to be the best, so I was living up to the best opportunities I had.
Sometimes you tend to find yourself in a position where others or even life shows more confidence in you than you do yourself. And you are assigned a task/project that you are not sure you can handle.
However, whether you succeed or fail totally depends upon the attitude with which you start.
When I switched roles, I realized I was offered a role much bigger than I thought I was capable of handling. I was totally ready to let go of the opportunity and stay put in my comfort zone. I took up the role because someone else believed in me. Years later, I look back and marvel at the learnings that came my way, the people I met on my journey, and the tremendous knowledge they shared. The success was not alone mine but the learnings were.
How would you describe the impact of Nigerian women in corporate businesses?
Nigerian woman in the corporate scene have been remarkably becoming influential in the corporate business. Women have begun taking the initiative to drive sustainable business growth especially in the Financial service sector. As a result, they are gradually occupying Leadership positions and making tremendous impacts. I am certain we would see more of these in the coming years.
