I am a pioneer member of Awesome Treasures. I was with the ministry when it was still Sovereign Flame ministry. I think my first attendance was in the year 2000.
I was very restless working an 8-5 job. When I got involved with ATF, I didnt just sit down in the crowd. I got involved with the organising, set up, marketing etc. I felt very much at home doing this and it spurred me to start out events and related businesses. I eventually resigned and started my own full time business. This year I’ll be 10 YEARS in business.

Our business name EVENTPLUS MANAGERS LTD and our subsidiary EPM COMMUNICATIONS. Our core business area is Event management and Marketing Communication. However, we also run a party rental outfit and a Training institute .
I started the business with about N300,000 and today, we have an annual turnover of above N5m with just 2 staff. We’ve never had more than 3 or 4 core staff at a time ( because of the nature of the business.) We employ more contract/casual staff as the need arises. We often outsource about 15 – 20 workers on each project
To a very large extent, Awesome Treasures Foundation played great role in my success. Getting involved with Awesome Treasures gave me a level of BOLDNESS and helped me discover myself. I saw other women who were Mothers, Wives, Professionals, Business persons etc who were in Awesome Treasures Foundation and I concluded I could do ALL things. I also Learnt a lot about interpersonal skills here also.
I am mentoring some people directly and others by association. I have at least 4 proteges that I am mentoring. I have others who come to me to put them through certain areas. BUT somehow on a daily basis, most of the youths I come in contact with end up becoming my mentees.
I have added value to many lives, as, I’m always thinking up ideas for others and pushing them to start something . I meet with a number of people that think “all is lost”. I encourage them and brainstorm with them on things they can possibly do. I just love doing this because I appreciate seeing others succeed. I’ve brought quite a number of people to Awesome Treasures Foundation and ensured that they get involved and make differences in their lives.
I have worked along and was the pioneer coordinator of the EDUCATION RESOURCE GRP. I have much passion for this group and feel elated working with the kids.
It is indeed Awesome to be part of Awesome Treasures Foundation.
