I just was sent an invitation by Abuja Literary Society that this CEO/founder will be hosted on July 31 in Abuja for his book, then I thought to talk about him here. Having read his book, "How Stupidity Saved My Life" some years ago, and attended one of his book readings at Silverbird Galleria Abuja, I am excited he will be back again on his book tour as well as speak about his newest venture Okada Books Site and App. Go ahead to see what he wrote about himself on his BLOG.
Okechukwu Ofili is a leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources in education and business. He runs the popular blog ofilispeaks.com and is the author of several books including the controversially brilliant “How Intelligence Kills: Our Dangerous Addiction to Respect, Religion, Intelligence and Lots More” where he argues against the status quo and pushes us to challenge the norm by thinking differently!
In addition to writing and speaking, Okechukwu is the founder/owner of okadabooks.com, a fast growing and easy-to-use mobile book reading app (MTN 2013 app of the year) for the African market.
In the professional world, Okechukwu Ofili is a full time design engineer with a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Houston. However, in his alternative and more FUN world he is an artist, author and speaker. The friction ignited when his two worlds collide gives birth to the imaginative drawings and unconventional articles featured daily on his ofilispeaks.com blog site.
His blog articles are known for their humor, honesty and creativity in challenging the status-quo of work, life and family. They have consistently been featured in numerous online blogs including bellanaija, ynaija and FABmagazine.
The blog’s content has subsequently been utilized in the publication of 3 uniquely distinct books: How Stupidity Saved My Life, How Laziness Saved My Life and How Intelligence Kills!
Bloggers, you see what he did by blogging? It's time to take this thing like serious business.
