“Herbert’s legacy of resilience and unity becomes our lighthouse, guiding us through the complexities of leadership and the evolving landscape of work.

“His wish for this engagement was more than a mere request; it was a testament to his belief in the transformative power of collective insight and the enduring spirit of mentorship that continues to inspire us in his absence.

“As we convene, driven not just to fulfil a promise but to embody the progress and innovation he championed, it’s crucial we address the significant challenges ahead, particularly the nuanced understanding of global trends crucial for Africa’s future.

“This gap underscores the essence of leadership: the imperative to listen, to understand the pulse of both local and international arenas, and to engage in thoughtful scenario planning.

Osinbajo said, “Let our gaze extend beyond the immediate, embracing a broader horizon that includes the vast spectrum of technology, climate change, demographic shifts, geopolitics, healthcare, and educational transformation.

“I am deeply grateful to Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede and the entire Access Bank team for this opportunity to delve together into these critical areas.” Your warm welcome, highlighted by a touching birthday surprise, has deepened my connection to this moment, reinforcing the importance of our collective endeavor.

“Let this series, inspired by Herbert’s memory and driven by our shared commitment to impactful leadership, serve as a catalyst for change, guiding us towards a future where we not only anticipate the challenges but become architects of the solutions.
