Uzo Nduka of Domino Information Company Limited

Special Invitation to Attend a Small Business Workshop Series

Uzo Nduka of Domino Information Company LimitedI urge you not to underestimate the importance of small business workshops, I strive to attend a number of workshops yearly especially if they are highly practical.

To this end, I wish to invite you to attend this highly practical and informative small business workshop organized by Domino Information Company Limited led by Uzo Nduka, a small business coach and strategist who has earned my respect!

Consider this….

On the 1st of January 2012 fuel subsidy was removed, workers went on strike, businesses were forced to shut down and many people went to the streets to protest. We are now in February and most micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) operators are asking ‘’what next?’’. The ongoing banking sector reforms, Boko Haram and the cost of fuel are combining to make life difficult for MSMEs.

While we may never be able to know what is next, we can plan and prepare to adapt, to survive, to grow and to make profit in 2012.

The Domino Information Company Limited (DICL) team is very pleased to invite you to the 2012 Small Business Planning Workshop Series.

Date: 1st – 2nd March, 2012

Time: 8-30am to 4pm

Venue: Peninsula Hotel, Block 94, Plot 16, Beside Brass Motors, along Lekki-Epe expressway, Lagos.

Small Business

Please note that this Small Business workshop series is not your usual workshop and that you are not coming to receive a lecture from experts. It will be a hands-on and practical exercise and you will be working with peers and colleagues to create your own robust business plan for 2012.

Below are 3 Objectives driving the DICL Team

  1. It is time to run your business with precision and direction, spend 2days with us and have a business plan
  2. Show me a successful man, and I will show you a man with a plan, come get your 2012 Business Activity Plan
  3. Success in business is not by default, 2 days at this workshop will clearly show you the how, where and when.

Hear them: We promise that at the end of the workshop, every participant will leave the venue with their own 2012 Business Plan. A plan that will help you and your team remain focused on your business goals throughout the year.

DICL and her partner, Moneycom Micro Finance Bank, will provide the tools, technical expertise and other resources needed to achieve this. The Small Business Planning Workshop Series are backed by DICL money-back guarantee.

Remember, it is reasonable to spend one and half days planning and deciding how to the rest of the year should go.

For enquiries, please contact us using the information provided on the attached flyer.

God bless you and see you at the workshop.

I endorse this small business workshop 100%

A Special Invitation to attend the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) Book Party

I have been asked by my friends @ the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) to invite you specially to this year’s book party.

About the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) Book Party

Committee for Relevant Art
Committee for Relevant Art (CORA)

This is a yearly event that was started three years ago by members of the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) to honour those who make the Shortlist of the prestigious $100,000 Nigeria Prize for Literature. Membership is made up of artistes, art enthusiasts, art promoters and art writers committed to the development of the Arts of Nigeria and their enabling environment.

A statement from the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) secretariat, says,

“The objective of the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) Book Party as manifested in the past two editions is to ensure that we bring the Shortlisted writers and books of the Nigeria Literature Prize face-to-face with the Literary audiences, so that we could create conversations around the work and the author”.

It continues; “That way, we believe that we would be contributing to making the Shortlisted work and its author known to the members of the public — long before the final winner is announced in September.

“Our conviction is that being on the Shortlist is already a certification that the Writer with his work is one of the very best; and as such a Winner even at this stage of the competition”.

The shortlisted books and authors for the 2011 Prize focussing on Children Literature, are:

  • The Runaway Hero by Uche Peter Umez;
  • Aunty Felicia Goes to School by Philip Begho;
  • Eno’s Story by Ayodele Olofintuade,
  • The Great Fall by Chinyere Obi-Obasi,
