Lagos Business School annual EMBA dinner 2021 | Sustaining wealth in the new normal

The Lagos Business School, Pan Atlantic University, celebrated its annual EMBA Dinner and Awards on December 17, 2021, at The Villa Dome Ikoyi, Lagos, to welcome and send forth EMBA 24 and 26, powered by EMBA 25.

The event, which saw, in attendance, professionals from different industries, including tech, banking, energy, telecoms etc., commenced with an opening prayer and the National Anthem. Opening remarks were given by class President Samuel Adeoye, followed by the dean address and presentation by a keynote speaker.

On behalf of EMBA cohort 25, Samuel Adeoye opened the 2021 dinner and awards night by praising the faculty for ensuring quality delivery to the EMBA 25 set and Emba 24 for setting a good example to follow as the event host in 2020.

He said, “Let’s not forget the insecurity in parts of the country and the loss of so many lives this year.

A big kudos to everyone here as this is no small feat we have achieved, I make bold to say our visions are clearer now, we all matter, and together we have made the difference.”

In his keynote address, the Special Assistant to the Minister, Industry, Trade and Investment, Collins Osagie Omokaro said, “the theme of this dinner: “Sustaining Wealth in the New Normal” is quite timely as it will help convey the right insights to guide our choices of personal and boardroom business decisions. This is particularly in the area of conviction from our baseline analysis, the projected and potential outcomes, the risks associated with those potentials – both systematic and unsystematic as well as the type of funding structure we choose to adopt.”

He added that he is proud of “the role the Lagos Business School has played in the development of Nigeria’s business environment, particularly in the case-based approach that has helped organisations shape competitive strategies for business sustainability. It is my wish that this esteemed institution is sustained to bring even greater success and prosperity.”

The awards had other activities in its lineup, including the battle of supremacy, presentation of awards, pass on the torch.
