The last SIPA event in Enugu was breath taking. The speakers were and impactful and inspirational and I left the event a better person who was better informed on entrepreneurship. Now, I have created my own niche in hospitality and I have started my own journey. Thanks LEAP Africa. Thanks to the SIPA team for an inspiring experience.
I have been to alot of leadership training in the last 3 years on my journey for self discovery and leadership, truth be told it has been nothing but a few encouragement. SIPA is a whole package, it shows you what to expect when you are about to embark on the entrepreneurship journey and what you get when you do that which is expected.
