Young CEOs Business Forum - Lagos Pitching Session

We are glad to be able to bring to you the Lagos Pitching Edition of the widely acclaimed Young CEOs Business Summit. The great interest and appreciation that was generated in the wake of our previous summits have led to a clamour for more of such events. This is why we have put together this special edition.

The Young CEOs Business Summit is designed to support young CEOs from the African continent on their on-going journey of business excellence. Renowned business leaders, industry giants and entrepreneurship experts will handle sessions designed to give them extensive training while stimulating real life business challenges in the 21st century with pragmatic solutions for societal benefit and business success.

Participating CEOs gain perspective on their own current leadership challenges, looking both at their personal styles and the global strategic context of their industries. It will be a veritable platform to network, collaborate and exhibit ideas and product alike since venture capitalists seeking investment in African start-ups will also be present. So matching individuals with the best in the industries or sectors of interest will be our own strategic mechanism to guarantee value. The summit will hold on the 4th & 5th of July, 2015 at the Lagos Oriental Hotel.

 The Pitching Session: YCBS Lagos-Nigeria 2015.
Coming up with creative ideas is easy; selling them to strangers is hard. All too often, entrepreneurs, sales executives and marketing managers go to great lengths to show how their new business plans or creative concepts are practical with a potential for high Returns on Investment (ROI)—only to be rejected by corporate decision makers who don’t seem to understand the real value of the ideas.

Why does this happen?
It turns out that the problem has as much to do with the seller’s traits as with an idea’s inherent quality. The person on the receiving end tends to gauge the pitcher’s creativity as well as the proposal itself and judgments about the pitcher’s ability to come up with workable ideas can quickly and permanently overshadow perceptions of the idea’s worth. At the YCBS Lagos pitching session, participants will learn how to make gripping pitches that will compel investors to sign you a cheque.
