Hey
I'm
Chika

Presenter. Compere. Entrepreneur. Founder of The Albert Conversations. An interesting sales person and a very curious lady hehehe.

I’ve spent my entire life doing things a little bit differently than what's expected. I guess you have too, haven’t you? #winks.

My brief story about TAC began many years ago during a conversation i had with my dear dad while he was sick & admitted at a hospital. After a long talk, He believed in it and gave his blessings hence i named it after him "ALBERT". As a first child, i have my siblings looking up to me hence i wanted a platform for them to enhance their entrepreneurial skills since my parents were of blessed memories. TAC came to fruition after my resignation as a presenter from one of the top radio stations in Abuja, Nigeria; my loved ones worried for me but I had a dream bigger than my favorite big hairstyle and i needed time, my mind to prepare for TAC hence the decision. Bagged with some money in my bank account, an idea that was burning in my heart, my desire to enhance I and my siblings entrepreneurial skills, my faith and my sales skills, TAC came to life.



Did I hear you ask if I was worried?

Oh yes!! Not only was I worried, I had sleepless nights and the fear of the unknown came swooshing in like an army of fun - killing dream squashers. Oh, did they bopped me hard but I prayed like I had never done before, shut my mind to naysayers, did a lot of research, trips and reached out to someone I respect for more clarity then I raised more money and conducted the first edition. (There’s more to this story)

I made mistakes here and there but I was thankful and guess what, I didn’t have a team. In attendance were 169 people out of the 700 people i planned for or should i say the hall permitted. I remember crying all through the event because it paid off and ofcourse my siblings were seated in the hall.





Looking
back,

Looking back, I am stronger, bolder and happier. So far, TAC has not only sharpened i and siblings enteprenuerial skills, it has done the same to thousands of entreprenuers. I am still in awe. To think we are just brushing the surface. What gladden my heart are the success stories we receive from time to time from some attendees that started one business or another or gained clarity to achieve a business or financial goal.
Permit me to leave you with three of my favorite quotes.

• There is always a way.
• Our Words are powerful.
• I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason and intellect has intended us to forgo their use. Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642).
