As part of its efforts to provide Leadership in the learning and development space while positioning as one of Africa’s leading hybrid learning Institutions, offering forward-thinking open enrolment courses; PLLI has launched her maiden program tagged SPARK. Spark is hosted by PLLI’s School of Enterprise Development and targeted at three diverse, yet very inclusive target audiences who seem to be most at-risk in today’s harsh macroeconomic environment, presenting business limiting socio-political and economic headwinds.
Speaking to journalists about the course, the General Manager of the Institution – Peter Eze outlined the at-risk target audiences to include:
- Aspiring entrepreneurs, and People in paid employment who are confused about the “how-to” of starting their dream business.
- Start-up businesses owners in their first 7 years of operations, who are still struggling with running a properly set-up and well-structured business.
- Students currently on “break” who wish to acquire entrepreneurial skills.
Peter also informed journalists that the course would kick-off on Saturday, 24th September 2022 and run every Saturday for a ten-week period. Responding to some questions, Peter informed our correspondent that, in a bid to cushion the impact of current hardships faced by Nigerians, the course would come significantly discounted, and offer opportunities for further rebates by providing the Virtual Attendance option. As such Course Fees for the Spark Course, which promises to expose students to a robust body of knowledge have been defined as follows:
- 150,000 for in-person attendance, and
- 100,000 for virtual classes.
From what we gather, the course boasts a stellar cast of Experienced entrepreneurs/ business moguls and thought leaders in the Entrepreneurship Development Space. Some of the facilitators Peter mentioned amid a plethora of stars talked about, include, Dr. Femi Johnson, Dr. Biodun Adedipe, Dr. Ngozi Onyia, Dr Tayo Odunsi, Mrs Toyin Sanni, Mrs Bisi Adeyemi, Pastor Godman Akinlabi, Pastor, Debo Omotunde, and Mrs Foluso Gbadamosi.
In His words, the General Manager of PLLI stated, “Spark promises to be 10 weeks of Intense subject matter immersion, capacity building and professional networking amongst entrepreneurship development enthusiasts”. He emphasized the key benefit one stood to enjoy by being part of this inaugural cohort as “Having the opportunity for practical application of taught principles under the direct mentorship of established Business leaders”.
It will be recalled that the Pistis Life and Leadership Institute Launched on Wednesday -November 17, 2021, with the vision of building a community of exceptional leaders who will be equipped with the right values to transform societies and impact Africa. Today PLLI has put forth a veritable sterling attempt at democratizing deep industry knowledge and secrets which has overtime led successful businesses to the pinnacle in their chosen sectors.
