The Leading Ladies Summit is an initiative of the PR Consultancy, BrookStone Consult whose aim is to establish a bi annual event that serves to effectively mentor, inspire, and motivate young women into making positive and informed choices, which in turn impact positively on their lives; as well as to spread awareness about particular challenges that concern the female gender, and to offer useful and lasting solutions.

On the 16th of January 2011 young women gathered to listen to featured speakers such as Funmi Omitowoju (former CEO UBA Prestige), Lisa Folawiyo (Jewel by Lisa) and Bukky George, CEO of Health Plus Pharmacy and CasaBella International. “It created an opportunity for robust interactive discourse between the mentors and attendees,” said Francesca Uriri, the convener of the summit.

The debut edition was themed ‘Dare to Dream’. It aimed to “inspire and motivate the attendees into conceptualizing and achieving their set goals in life as business women, corporate executives and entrepreneurs”.

Bukky George of Health Plus Pharmacies and CasaBella International Limited took on ‘Entrepreneurship 101: Start Up Nuggets for Beginners’, giving a thorough explanation on all that it takes to build a successful business.
