I Did Not Regret Attending Slay Festival 2018: My Experience

Slay loudly or slay quietly; just slay!
She Leads Africa (SLA), one of the leading NGOs that is particular about empowering and connecting African women recently held it’s annual ‘slay’ festival on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), and believe me, Our African sisters, girlfriends, wives and mothers came to slay. Women from all walks of life: career-wise, religion, tribe, social class, they all came to slay, as this is the major idea behind the Slay Festival: to make women the centre of it all and provide a suitable platform for networking.

The Festival had a welcoming and calming ambience, making it easy for attendants to interact with the organizers, the coordinators, and other attendants. This is no exaggeration, but, Slay Festival can be likened to a creamy vanilla ice cream with some awesome toppings that could make you bite your tongue. The brilliant event had 18 outstanding motivational who spoke on the how women can grow in all areas of their lives.
Funke Opeke, the CEO of MainOne a panelist in the Money and Success Tent, is one of the motivational speakers that spoke at the event. she gave insights on how to get finances for a business that’s in it baby steps. Sophia Ike Onu as the anchor of Funke Opeke’s session also narrated how she got the first capital for her business, the 5k shop. Jessica Akano, Talent Acquisition Manager at Andela took us on the journey of how she successfully switched careers during her session with Oyiza Salu; and they both gave tips on how to tailor a resume or curriculum vitae to suit a role.
These individuals are already successful in their careers and businesses, and with the lessons they’ve gotten over several years of experience, they were able to give life-changing lessons on business, career, arts, culture, entertainment, health, technology and media. Also, they were able to give wonderful insights in the master classes and 5 educative panels. No event is ever wholesome without some refreshment and entertainment, so Maggi and Nestle made sure there were free food and water. The music played at the event was very pleasant to the ears and loads of style inspiration were gotten from peeping at jaw-dropping outfits of attendants.
Honestly, Slay Festival 2018 was the first event to ever fulfil it promises this year. It has definitely come to lift women spirits and make them relevant in whatever form we choose to be in…lest I forget, at the end of the event, I caught few men who came to spy (LOL).
