Expert Exposed Final Year Students to the Activities that can Enhance Brilliant Entrepreneurship Journey

Ms. Yashica Keshwani, the CEO of Mittee Brand, a certified organic beauty company, has described the entrepreneurial journey as nothing short of innovative, risk-taking, and of an entrepreneur. She gave this important business expose on Thursday, 24th March 2022 at the recently held Skyline University Nigeria’s campus seminar, tagged ‘8th CEO Guest Lecture’, where she was the speaker.

The CEO Guest Lecture series is part of the goal of the University to graduate students who are job creators than seekers. It as well served as a platform set aside to inspire the students of the University looking to go into business, gain relevant business knowledge, skills, networks as well as expose them to the activities that can enhance brilliant entrepreneurship ideas.

Ms. Yashica, while delivering her speech, stated that the story from the personal journey to the place of business, is never underestimated and students should not be embarrassed by the story that leads to their success, as well as where they intend to be in the next five years in business /career. She shared these stories with the student to help them grasp the concept and challenges that lead to a prosperous business enterprise.

In her explanation, she stated that every successful business idea will be tested, especially by people who will discourage them to start. As a result, she added that the quickest way out of discouragement is to believe in oneself and take action, without which they may not be able to transform their ideas into economic opportunities which is an essential element for business success. As she puts it, “You are not going younger and you need to invest in yourself at this moment… Wasting of time is a greater pandemic than Covid-19”.

She advised the students to venture into informative and educational videos and training on productivity as well as time management that will help guide them to apply their knowledge in the right businesses. While knowledge is important, she added, “Networking is key because you never know which person in your space is going to help take you to the next phase of your career. She appreciated the management faculty and students for a productive time and invited the students to an internship opportunity at her company.

The Registrar of Skyline University Nigeria, Mr. Haruna Aliyu, while delivering the closing remarks, appreciated the Guest speaker for honoring the University with her time. He stated that the University has created the platform to provide the opportunity for interactive learning between CEOs and students. He reminded the speaker of the need to help the students with IT, internship placements and to assist them when they call.
