Social entrepreneurs get in here! Don’t be caught sitting on a bicycle. The biggest and glitziest event for social entrepreneurs and development/ non profit social professional is here again!
Nigeria’s brightest development/ non-profit sector professionals prepare to meet, engage, share ideas and deepen perspectives on the defining role of human capital management in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals at the forthcoming Development Dialogue holding 9 a.m. on Thursday,
29th November 2018 at Zone Tech Park, Lagos.
The Dialogue, hosted by Ideation Hub Africa, is Nigeria’s leading thought-leadership Conference for

This high-octane gathering connects decision makers, Executive Directors, HR leaders, Program

and impact-driven businesses; who seek cutting-edge insights and global best practices on
managing people, processes and performance for greater impact.
Debola Deji-Kurunmi, Executive Director of Ideation Hub Africa (host of the event) spoke passionately
“we will sabotage our vision for social impact without a strong understanding of how to raise other
leaders, how to hire the right fit for our initiatives, how to structure internal processes and systems for
the organization, how to train for strategic competencies, how to rally a sold-out team of volunteers,
how to measure and monitor performance; or how to connect brainpower to bottom line.”
This year, delegates will be inspired by Keynote Speeches, Expert Talks, Growth Advisory Panel Session,
Open Discussion Forum, Talent of the Future Awards, networking opportunities, Exhibitions etc.
