Senator Victor Ndoma, Bimbo Daramola, Emeka Maduegbuna, Hans Essaadi To Speak At Gtpro Masterclass On Government Relations And Public Policy Strategy
Former leader of the Senate and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Senator Victor Ndoma Egba and the Managing Director/CEO of Nigeria Breweries Plc, who is also the Chairman of the Beer Sectoral Group of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Hans Essaadi have been invited to speak at the maiden edition of the GTpro Masterclass on Government Relations and Public Policy Strategy.
The Masterclass, with the theme: "Navigating Government and Policy Challenges for Business Success and Sustainability," scheduled to hold on Thursday, June 22, 2023 at the Oriental Hotel, Lekki Lagos would have in attendance chief executive officers, top policy makers, investors, and executives of firms operating in the critical sectors of the Nigeria economy including oil and gas, telecommunications, manufacturing, fin-tech, real estate and financial services.
The Masterclass, according to GTpro has become necessary arising from the growing need for a robust government relations and public policy engagement across Africa and particularly moreso, as the continent has become the new investment destination due to the combined opportunities of its huge population, low cost of labour and a healthy consumption environment influenced by a youthful population.
Whilst the investment flows continue, the environment becomes a critical component that could either allow investors enjoy and effectively galvanize the opportunities inherent in these countries or become stiffened, simply because they lack understanding of the regulatory frameworks and policies or what the future holds.
In the last two decades, Nigeria has been amongst the top destinations for investment portfolios in Africa but witnessed a sharp drop in recent times owing to increased operating challenges, security issues and of course, stiffening government policies, causing loss in investments and creating uncertainties.
The GTPro Masterclass program, therefore, brings together an exceptional lineup of facilitators, offering participants unparalleled access to renowned industry experts and immersive, hands-on learning experiences that would provide a platform for cross fertilization of ideas among legislators, policy makers and corporate executives.
According to the Co-Founder of GTPro and a renowned turnaround expert, Dr Dakuku Peterside said attending the exclusive event will expand the frontiers of developing robust strategies and approaches in today's thriving dynamic landscape.
Peterside, the immediate past Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and former House of Reps member, stressed further that "Our Masterclass program represents a unique opportunity for participants as it will provide critical insights on the cost-benefits of maintaining a strategic government relations mechanism that is sustainable; it will also help participants to access various windows that can be engaged in their stakeholder relations and engagement programmes."
Other speakers and panelists at the Masterclass include Mr. Emeka Maduegbuna, Chairman of C & F PORTER NOVELLI; Business and Strategic Communications consultants, Dr. Samba Seye; Managing Director of Total Energies, Otunba Olakunle Olamuyiwa; Chief Operating Officer of Betway, Honourable Bimbola Daramola, Mrs Oluyemisi Busari; Senior Adviser, Government Relations of Honeywell Group and Olufemi M. Awoyemi, the current CEO, Founder and Chairman of Proshare Nigeria, amongst others.
