History was made on October 6, 2015 at the inaugural launch of the Association of Promotional Products Specialists of Nigeria APPSON. For the very first time in our over hundred years as a nation the practitioners in the promotional products and business gift industry came together under one umbrella to form an association. I am honored and humbled to be selected by my colleagues as the founding President of the association.
As a premier association our vision is to enhance membership value and elevate the profile of the industry through innovation and professionalism. Our core objectives among others are as follows: deliver great member values, advocate and be a voice to advance the interest of the industry to the government and to all stake holders, strategic business partnership, engage the global market place, deepen the industry via capacity building, run an efficient and professional organisation. The work towards import substitution by locally producing some of the items we presently import.
The summary of our essence and manthra is Adding Value, it is amazing that within two months of setting up a group whatsapp platform we are already doing millions of naira business amongst ourselves, very useful dissemination of information is going on. I have always believed in the power of one which involves, coming together, working together and keeping together so that Together Everyone Achieves More (T.E.A.M). It was Victor Hugo, a French poet who said “THERE IS NOTHING MORE POWERFUL THAN AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME!!!
