This year's Young Professionals Career Conversations (YPCC) may have come and gone, but the impacts of the conference remain, especially among the youths, as the event was abuzz with activities strategically crafted to enlighten and ease the fears of young professionals.





Young
Professionals Career Conversations is a platform that bridges the alarming gap
that exists between young professionals and leaders in the industry they play
in thereby keeping them abreast with happenings and helping them find their
footing towards a productive and fulfilling career.





The
venue, Zone Tech Park, Gbagada, Lagos state was bursting with life and energy
as over 100 participants gathered around seven key industry leaders to glean
wisdom, gain clarity and instructions that will help them scale as
professionals. It was a mind-blowing experience for the participants as they
saw their limitations and preconceived limiting notions shattered before their
very eyes. The event organizers restated that the aim of these career
conversations was to aid the participants in making informed career
decisions. 





The
Theme being   Stretch; building capacity for Impact    couldn't have come at any
time better than this as matters such as the Future of work, digital disruption
and workplace/workforce of the future continues to be a major discussion
globally.





A
spoken word artist Jumoke Ogunfowora, thrilled the audience with her craft
leaving all with a question to ponder   Why is the catapult stretched backwards
before it is fully launched?  





The
first panel session moderated by Carol Ofem (marketing communications and brand
strategist at Cars45) addressed   Intentional Career Planning for Young
Professionals  . The array of panelists included seasoned professionals: Mr.
Olamide Eyinla (HR expert and Senior Human Resource Business Partner at Nigeria
Bottling company), Mrs. Funmi Omo (MD/CEO at African Alliance), Mrs. Blessing
Robinson (HR Business director at SmartHR) and 
Mrs. Mofoluwaso Ilevbare (Confidence coach and Bestselling Author); all
of who engaged the attendees in various conversations around intentional career
planning.





The
panel highlighted the need for a career vision and growing in the direction of
the vision through passion. Growing according to the mapped trajectory requires
passion and deliberate effort which in turn builds confidence and credibility.
The panelist concluded that the career path may not be a straight journey,
thereby encouraging the participants to be flexible on their career journey.





Senior
Business Producer and Broadcaster at Channels TV, Temple Asaju engaged the
second panel session in conversations centered on the future of work and how
Professionals can position themselves to thrive in it. The three man panelists
were Dr. Andrew Nevin (Advisory Partner and Chief Economist at PWC), Mrs.
Ibilola Adefope (Lawyer and managing partner at AVID Global Consulting) and Mr.
Femi Adeniyi (CEO/CSA at Simplex Business Solutions). A major take home from
their session was that the future of work from the global stand point is fast
paced and laced with many uncertainties.





However,
these should not induce fear in young professionals as professional with
relevant skillset would be highly valued and needed in the future. The panels
encouraged participants to acquire skills that would be relevant for the future
and suggested some skills that would position young professionals for
relevance. One remarkable quote from that session was given by Mrs. Ibilola
Adefope, when she stated that with   Technology and millennial, the future of
Nigeria is so bright.
