For the fourth year in a row, the WOW Network presented a 4 hour goal setting workshop led by iWOW Founder and Curator, Udo Okonjo, who is passionate about helping people live extraordinary lives.
This year saw a new improved workshop style session tagged- “No Nonsense Goals” Session, a more structured and demanding series for people who desire to commit to a No Nonsense lifestyle. A No Nonsense Lifestyle is one with bold audacious, no nonsense-impossible-is-nothing-goals, a lifestyle that makes no excuses, defies the odds and commits to a lifestyle beyond your comfort zone.
REAL LIFE CASE STUDIES.
Oke Maduewesi, MD and Owner of Zaron Cosmetics, was a special guest, to present a case study on her rapidly growing brand, with 200 outlets and 1000 distributors across Africa.
Class size was limited to 30, to encourage interaction and intimate accountability. It was an action packed four hours of inspiration, practical teaching, knowledge sharing amongst the 28 registered guests, who were mainly serious professionals, top executives of leading institutions and business owners of growing companies. The networking value was as significant, as the conducive environment for honest sharing, learning and crafting bold new No Nonsense goals by registered guests.
Incredibly positive feedback had been pouring and according to one of the guests Olu Abiodun Adekoya, who also shared her experience on the benefits of an accountability circle – “This is what I call the best Goal setting workshop. It is rely a NO NONSENSE goal setting workshop. I learnt a lot. I absolutely love the work book and the reflective session. I enjoyed meeting all the real women who attended today. Very real, easy to talk to & genuine women. We all engaged with one another excellently! This is what a real women’s meeting should be like. We laughed hard and worked hard.” Speaking further, The NO NONSENSE workshop was out of this world, very organised, soul searching, detailed and results oriented. The value is indeed way more than 25000!!! I am so glad I invested in it and the efforts you have put in to make this happen must not go to waste. I must take action!!!
The No Nonsense Goal Session will hold its next edition in London, 21/February, and in Abuja on the 7th of February.
