#8: Collaboration In Business With Gideon Odijie

November 15, 2016

Today I am talking with Gideon Odijie about how collaboration in business is the way for Africans to connect and spread their stories.  He created Africa’s first satellite radio, called Africa Radio Live. He also organized the first TEDx Ajegunle and is currently building a skills development school in Ajegunle.

Gideon is an extremely motivated individual who believes that bridging the gap between the skills learned in Nigerian universities and the skills needed for professional success is the key to Nigeria’s future.

**I am inserting this video because Mallence Bart-Williams’ was the speaker that Gideon was talking about in the audio. She gives such an amazing speech about why there is this really negative perception of Africa in the media. Mallence explains that it is deliberate campaign to destabilize wealthy African nations and their systems and how this entire process is backed by huge PR campaigns.**
