It was a pleasant mix of fun and new knowledge as the Purpose Power and Lifestyle Design (PPLD) International held its first one-day CSR ‘Personal Development & Technology Improvement’ intensive training tagged “PDTI” on Thursday 6th November 2014 at its training centre in Amuwo Odofin, Lagos.
The training, attended by about 30 select Senior Media Executives drawn from Radio, TV, Print and Online media, was specifically designed for success-driven individuals who truly desire to transform their Potential to High Performance, personally and professionally.
It was a collaborative effort of PPLD and ICTwithCFA, as a Corporate Social Responsibility event, to promote sound leadership, productivity principles and digital skills, powered by a new set of paradigms, tapping into the little-understood subconscious powers individuals have but largely unutilized. The program was facilitated by Engineer Tunde Makun, the acclaimed Life & Business Strategic Coach and Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata Jnr. “CFA”, the ebullient ICT expert.
According to PPLD”s founder and visioner in Nigeria, Tunde Makun, “at a time the nation is groaning under multiple negative economic and socio-political challenges, it is imperative that we begin to source new paradigms for thinking out-of-the-box solutions rather than continue to grumble and complain when it is clear that nobody can help us but ourselves”.
He went on further to state that “the choice of Media Executives was strategic largely because of the unique position they hold as Influencers in the society. Media Executives, by virtue of the high-octane living, deserve attention because unless they are able to dramatically improve their productivity with new mindset and digital tools and techniques, they stand the risk of serious burn-outs and we will all be losers if they cannot perform at optimum levels of concentration and well-being.
At the end of the session, it was evident from the participants’ feedbacks that the program was just what they required to enhance their life and career possibilities. “It was indeed a thing of joy to be able to stimulate New Possibilities for delivering Quantum Results thinking in the lives of rarely acknowledged distinguished members of the society”, added CFA.
The next edition of the PDTI CSR initiative will be focused on Teachers and Lecturers from select institutions of learning.
