Highlights of Seminar

General Introductions

The session was insightful, enlightening and informative.

Mr. Fagbemi spoke briefly about his background as a banker and the role played by his high school mates in this regard.

He explained that one does not need to be a professional to participate in the oil & gas sector and there are several aspects that are not oil inclined that one could participate in as various services are usually needed in the upstream and downstream sector as service providers, vendors and suppliers further breaking them down into small units such as catering, nursing, cleaning, car hire, laundry, stationery, sanitary, etc for the upstream sector and in the downstream sector such as sales of engine oil and lubricants
‎He emphasized that playing in this sector doesn’t necessarily require huge funds and capital

The facilitator was asked a number of questions along these lines.
There was also a live chat interactive participation session as the guest facilitator answered questions posed by online participants as well as members physically present.

One of the questions asked was how one could actually participate and he advised that NAPIMS website had all the current vacancies and services needed by each International Oil Company.
The speaker emphasized that these IOCs are very transparent in their dealings and usually discourage bribery.

Mr. Fagbemi advised from his wealth of experience that;
●creating a unique selling point is one of the keys to success in entrepreneurship.
●Information is very key. Read and research.
●Examine your environment and identify gaps where you can plug in to create bunisess opportunities.
●every single penny counts and prudence plus record-keeping are the keys to financial freedom.
