Have you ever wondered what your legacy to your children will be?
What is your legacy to your children?
For so many of us, we banter every day about how difficult adulting is, and we daydream about having a Dangote or an Otedola type of wealth from our parents. Unfortunately, a good number of new parents and millennials are making the same mistake our parents made, when they tried their absolute best, but mostly prepared us for a world that no longer exists.
We are so caught up in the hustle and bustle of survival in this ever-changing, fast-paced capitalist world, that we forget to look out for the kids and get them ready for the world they will have to adult in, sparing them the momentous mindset changes that we had to endure.
There are so many ways to go about this type of education and miseducation, particularly in a country where our education sector might not be keeping up to date with the current realities.
This is why we organised the Herconomy Teenage Vision-Boarding event for the young adults who we owe the responsibility of preparing for the realities they will be facing in a few years.

We will like to inform you about The TGIx Event 2022 - Open Investment Conversations with leading Financial Experts in Africa, to be held on the 23rd of January, 2022.

At this event, there will be well-rounded, open conversations on investment trends and opportunities that will keep participants informed on how best to make financial plans in 2022. They will also drive conversations about the future of money, digital assets, and currencies.
The Keynote speaker for the event is Mr. Bolaji Balogun, a well-respected investment banking professional, the CEO of Chapel Hill Denham, one of the top 5 assets management companies in Nigeria.
Other seasoned speakers are Abiola Adekoya (Lead Wealth Advisor, Artios Capital), Kola Aina (Founding Partner, Ventures Platform), Chinwe Egwin (Chief Economist, Coronation Merchant Bank), to mention a few.
These speakers will be speaking on two core panels; the first panel on finding investment opportunities in crisis and the second panel on the future of money.
Kindly note that it will be on a first-come, first-serve basis as we have limited seats available.
We look forward to hearing from you seeing you there.
