“From this video course I gained an understanding of the importance of building relationships and to sustain the vision of where I want my business to be. This video has shown me as a designer it is not just about leading the way with my products but leading the way with my partners in business. Certain partnerships need to be formed so I will know everyone that is part of the vision understands where they stand and how collectively we can achieve the business objective. The most important thing of all is to meet with the people I will work with in person and understanding their values and integrity in order for business success. As a designer in the UK, that wants to move my business idea to Nigeria, I am seeking more knowledge and training how to position my self in the next two years successfully. I am super excited for the coming course…… READY TO TAKE OVER!”
