Nigerian entrepreneur Princewill Omorogiuwa is building a pan-African education brand which is set to be the world’s largest organisation for professional marketers.
Omorogiuwa is thefounder of Simon Page College of Marketing, a top-notch marketing training school, with branches in Ghana, Nairobi and Nigeria.
Simon Page provides professional qualifications and postgraduate courses in marketing accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the world’s largest organisation for professional marketers.
Omorogiuwa worked previously in London training marketing professionals. While in the UK, Omorogiuwa was able to train about 3,000 students from 100 nationalities, most of whom eventually became high flyers in their different careers.
Omorogiuwa notes there is demand for globally recognised professional qualifications among graduates in Africa who want to stand out in a highly competitive job market. Burdened, Omoroguiwa considered the possibility of offering quality training back home, even though he knew what huge sacrifice would follow.
Like every other young entrepreneur, Omoroguiwa had his initial fears and challenges, but he chose not to dwell on them, instead he braced himself and took the risks he knew he needed to take.
Despite challenges, he continues to dream big and fly even higher. Currently, he has plans to open centers in Zambia, Botswana and Mauritius.
Princewill Omorogiuwa believes that to build a thriving business,entrepreneurs should stay focused, hire promising young people and help polish their skills while building an employee-friendly work environment. This is what has helped him on his journey to success.
