Time to go Global!
“What time is it?-Time to go global!” the gathering responded intermittently as the guest speaker, Barrister Abiola Fashina delivered her lecture at the Town and Gown Interactive Session recently organised by Covenant University Centre for Entrepreneurial Development Studies.
Barrister Fashina is the Chief Executive Officer of My Faith TV Network, Georgia, USA and a Social Media Expert. She spoke on “Leveraging Social Media for Profits” where she held the audience spell-bound with her style of delivery.
She enumerated types of Social Media platforms relevant to the needs of an entrepreneur. These, according to her, include Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google plus, Instagram, Skype and Whats App.
She explained that each has its peculiar advantage as millions of people are connected to them for various activities which include storytelling, engagement and relationship.
Barrister Fashina noted that Social Media is cheap, easily accessible and has local and international reach which is of great advantage to an entrepreneur. She also listed some tools entrepreneurs must have: a telephone, an email, business cards, a website and a Social Media platform.
The interactive session was attended by the Director, CEDS, Dr. Omotayo Adegbuyi, immediate past Registrar of the University, Dr. Olumuyiwa Oludayo, immediate past Director, CEDS, Dr. Chinonye Love Moses, former Chaplain of the University, Pastor Seyi Macaulay, Dr. Mosunmola Akinbode, Mr. Fred Peter, other members of the CEDS Committee and 300 Level to 500 Level students of the University.
