London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) is collaborating with the United Kingdom Trade and Investment in bringing together some of the world’s top businesses alongside the highest calibre of young professionals to a Global Business Summit in Lagos on Wednesday, according to a statement from the British High Commission in Lagos on Tuesday.
“At LSBF, we encourage students to get involved in networking activities as early as possible,” Alona Klopot, a member of the LSBF Global Events Team, said in the statement.
“With the current job market, schools should enable students to have the opportunity to meet business leaders, and not only learn from them but share their personal experience as future business experts,” he added,
The summit will have keynote speakers from top international organisations including JP Morgan and the Chartered Institute of Bankers.
The occasion will equally provide effective networking opportunities with managers and executives in the field, as well as LSBF professionals, online and on-campus students, and alumni.
“These networking events will provide a competitive advantage when in the working world, as relationships are developed with visionary leaders from an early stage,” the Klopot said.
Expected at the one-day summit include business leaders, entrepreneurs, LSBF alumni and current students from different countries.
It also aims to develop relationships between these leaders and the new generation of future experts, as well as to enrich each other with exchange of knowledge and contacts.
