Future Leadership Conference 2015


I met and had a chat with the convener of the Future leadership conference yesterday at the enterprise radio studio. He was my guest, but the conversation continued off air. Mark is a man with a vision and I am inspired by his push and drive to impact lives.

If you follow me on instagram @mofolusade you would have read a little bit about his story, from working for 10years with vanguard to loosing all of his gratuity payment within 6months to a logistics business he invested in and to getting through this to start afresh. 

I had a short interview with him off air and thought to share.

Meanwhile, the conference is tomorrow, 15th October 2015 and its free to attend if you just register. There will be opportunities for fresh graduates and students. 



Tell us about yourself?

I am serial innovator, God's ambassador, convener of Future Leadership Conference.

How did you feel after your first business collapsed?

It was an awful experience that left little to be desired, but I am stronger today because I went through that dark tunnel!

How did you get back on your feet?

I did a lot of volunteering work. I believe in God's ability to use my pain for His glory this was what kept me going!

What is your "selfish" reason for starting your business 
(okay so, the  kamaroozy boss made me add this question. He believes everybody has a "selfish" reason for doing anything, even if they won't admit, what do you think?)

I see old men working and breaking their backs to build other's people business only to retire to the rocking chairs too old to run their show I don't want this to be my story.

What is the vision behind the future leadership conference?

I believe the change we seek and advocate begins with us,we are championing this course by creating a mentorship platform that will facilitate individual transformation.

How have you sustained it this far?

This is more than a good idea to me this is a calling! So at the first stage in this project I injected my personal funds to kick start it, with the assistance of like minds that are as passionate about this. However, we greatly anticipate support and partnership from corporate organizations to do more.
