The workshop, which attracted over 100 participants from secondary schools and tertiary institutions, was held on Tuesday in Lagos and co-sponsored by TPT International Limited, a foremost award-winning public relations firm.
The sponsorship, according to Mr. Adetokunbo Modupe, TPT’s Chairman and Lead Strategist, is in line with the agency’s culture of giving back to the society by supporting platforms that provides mentorship and inspiration to develop a better society, in addition to promoting great talents and innovations from thought processes to idea generations and implementation.
“As part of our giving back to the society and helping to shape the future of the generation next, the Global Interns-powered career planning and internship opportunities workshop has been co-sponsored by TPT International Limited because we believe that the workshop provides an opportunity for us to support the shaping of a better future for our younger generations,” he said.
The TPT Chairman added that the company has impacted greatly in the Public Relations industry by altering some of its practices with his innovative style, thereby remaining actively relevant in the PR space in Nigerian and beyond not only by consulting, but by giving back to the society.
Olufunmilayo Modupe, Principal Adviser of Global Interns Company and Chief Facilitator of the workshop, expressed her gratitude for the sponsorship and commended the agency for supporting causes that add values to the younger generation in shaping a better future.
“I am elated by this sponsorship from TPT International which has helped us a great deal in amplifying and championing the plight of the younger generation in the right direction. With TPT’s support, we have been able to let Nigerians and her neighbours know the value of shaping a better future for our school kids and young adults,” she said.
Speaking at the occasion, Oluwaseyi Adeoye, Chief Executive Officer of Pierrine Consulting, who is also one of the facilitators, explained that the interaction and engagement of the students is a pointer to the fact that the Career Connect Series has achieved its aim of giving the participants’ the platform to ask questions and be educated on planning their career.
The primary objective of the Career Connect Series is to bring all stakeholders – the employers, employees and students – together, bridge the knowledge gap between the students and the employers and improve the transition from high school to university to being an employee or an entrepreneur, so as to add values to the pupils’ lives.
