Lately I’ve been looking out for creative communities to engage in, from blogging conferences to empowerment workshops. Even though a lot of these things can be learned online, sometimes being around people who are passionate about the same things as you is enough motivation.
Conferences are great (if you choose the right ones), they’re inspiring, educational, and full of networking opportunities. Most importantly though, you just might get that ultimate idea there.I attended fusion connect: fashion and style edition last year and i’m looking forward to attending the Beauty Edition on the 8th of May. Attending more creative conferences is at the top of my to do list this year. That being said, I came across She Hive Abuja organised by She Leads Africa. It is a “Professional boot camp that helps young women develop their career and business skills, connect with a community of leaders, and network with mentors and investors” I signed up almost immediately!!! knowing i have a lot to gain from this and i’m definitely going to share that experience with you guys.
I drafted a list of other conferences holding in Abuja we should look forward to this quarter (April, May and June), don’t hesitate to go through them and attend if you can. This might just be the key to your success. Thank me later!!!
