Stanbic IBTC, a member of Standard Bank Group, will host a Youth Leadership Series to deepen financial and entrepreneurial knowledge among Nigeria’s younger generations, said Chief Executive, Mr. Yinka Sanni, in a statement Thursday.

“The Youth Leadership Series is tailored after the annual Stanbic IBTC Business Leadership Series, an annual event that facilitates the sharing of knowledge and information among local and international participants who are drawn from key sectors of the economy, he said.

“The overarching objective is to stimulate deeper engagements and outcomes for the sectors as well as unlock investment opportunities in the country.”

“The popular saying that children are the leaders of tomorrow, as cliché as it may sound, for us at Stanbic IBTC, we believe that the youths are the leaders for today and because we understand just how easily one can get distracted or discouraged by the different challenges we face in our lives; our youths therefore need to be aptly and constantly guided, mentored, inspired and motivated, not just to attain their goals but in order for them to actualize their full potential,” Sanni added.

He said the Group decided it had become imperative for it to retool and re-strategize its efforts geared towards building the next generation of Nigerian leaders – the youths, in line with its commitment to growing that very important segment of the society.

The inaugural Stanbic IBTC Youth Leadership Series – Against The Odd – will feature three remarkable Nigerians as lead speakers, Kechi Okwuchi, a survivor of the ill-fated Sosoliso plane crash of December 2005, who later went on to bag a First Class Degree from the University of Thomas Houston, Texas and emerged a finalist at America’s Got Talent; Member Feese, survivor of the United Nations Building bomb blast in Abuja and Cobhams Asuquo, renowned music producer who was born blind.

The Youth Leadership Series dubbed – Against The Odds will be held  Thursday 25 January, 2018.
