Looking back to when the Oriental Hotel’s 400-capacity hall in Victoria Island, Lagos witnessed a large turn-out of hundreds of female entrepreneurs and celebrity guests in an event that has been dubbed the “ultimate gathering of female entrepreneurs in Nigeria/Africa”, Boss Lady Conference. Even though it was the maiden edition, the impact and excitement generated by Boss Lady Conference 2018 has remained indelible in the lives of participants of that maiden edition. Indeed, its organisers, The Entrepreneur Africa, is known for high-impact and result-driven projects, judging from its signature events like The Entrepreneur Africa Awards.

Others included Ife Durosinmi-Etti (Author and popular entrepreneur), Mabel Makun (CEO, Midas Interiors and wife of Celebrity Comedian AY), Derin Fagbure (Founder, In Black and White), etc.
