These photos from the event where I spoke recently in London, “Who wants to be an entrepreneur” hosted last Saturday by Purple Premium tell only half the story. I’m glad I made time to share my business and life lessons with the amazing entrepreneurs and professionals who were at the event. I’m also blessed to have made some really great connections with the speakers and guests.
Here’s a full account by the master of Ceremony, a top notch key note speaker and executive coach himself Charles Khiran who anchored the event on behalf of the event host, Dr. Richard Obahor.
Who Wants To Be An Entrepreneur Event
Was a runaway success yesterday, held at the upmarket Bulgari hotel in Knightsbridge. The very successful event was organised and hosted by Dr Richard Obahor of Purplepremium.
It attracted some dynamic and high level entrepreneurs who came to share their stories, successes, advice and lessons with approximately 100 people who attended. The event targeted Millenials but attracted many outside of the target group as well.
Emma Jones MBE of Enterprise Nation appointed by UK PM as a Business Ambassador, she is also a regular feature on the Clive Bull LBC radio show, where she answers questions on entrepreneurship. Emma did an absolutely amazing job.
The keynote speaker was American Paul Oberschneider, the tycoon who built a $200 million dollar fortune from hotels and other interests. Paul had a wealth of unique insights which he happily shared with the insatiable audience.
The last speaker who erupted the room even at 7pm, is the force of nature known as Udo Maryanne Okonjo, CEO of Fine & Country West Africa. Udo lit up the room and turned up the heat by challenging the audiences who could not get enough to dream big and think big. Her talk was replete with many personal anecdotes and stories of victories! Phew what a lady!! @udo_okonjo
Other speakers were Marian Mola who has an incredible story @mariammola_
Sheun David Onamusi an accomplished young man who opened the first TM Lewin clothes shop in Nigeria. Sheun delivered a stunning presentation.

Our host Dr Richard Obahor successful entrepreneur and property developer gave the vote of thanks and shared his vision for creating this platform as a ladder for others to climb especially millenials.
I provided much needed inspiration to energise the room as I facilitated the day. I will be pleased to support Richard again in the future, the guy is meticulous with excellent attention to detail, no wonder he is successful!!
