The first of March 2018 will forever go down in memory lane as the SM Jury brought together some of the best entertainers who shared  their wealth of experience to a large gathering of young entrepreneurs at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos.

In her opening speech, convener of the SM Jury and award winning Public Relations Consultant, Tonia Odili, challenged all Participants to unlock new opportunities in their various sectors as they tap into a great network of influencers.

Celebrities and Influencers who were present includes Laura Ikeji Kanu, Ubi Franklin, Sound Sultan and Abiola Fabio.

Laura Ikeji Kanu while addressing the audience said failing is a good thing as she failed JAMB and WAEC 5 times each. The fashion entrepreneur and mother of one also encouraged youths to strive for success.

Triple MG boss Ubi Franklin on the other hand mentioned the importance of finding one’s passion and growing it as a brand or business from the scratch instead of trying to scale hurdles and looking for immediate success.

Sound Sultan however emphasized the importance of putting up good content, being up to date on trending societal issues as well as using social media as a tool for startups who want to become big brands. He also said youths should identify a problem in whatever endeavor they choose and provide a solution to it.

In conclusion, Abiola Fabio CEO of ERDTERS urged young people to monetize their passion by using strategies that have been tested and proven to work, while using social media to sell to their business communities.

The 5th edition of the SM Jury was moderated by popular OAP, Onoge Tega Ben and was proudly supported by CookieJar, Tranquil Quest, Erdters, Ojireh Prime, Virgin Rose Resorts and South Africa Tourism.
