Mrs. Toyosi Gbede

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.

I joined Awesome Treasures Foundation in 2011 and have since then not been the same.  I was inspired to start my business because I believe it was time to stop working on someone else’s dream, and start making mine come to life and I prayed about it.  When the time was right, I left paid employment and started mine.

I have had my fashion company since 2010 and I started my Events Planning Company since 2005 but my major profession is Law and I have had my Law Practice since August 2014, so I am a Legal practitioner on one hand and Events Producer/Planner on the other hand. My Law Firm is called Stark Legal and the Events Planning Company is called Silver Lining Events Limited.

I started my Events Planning business from home, with about 2000 Pounds with about 20 temporary staff and no permanent staff but about employing 2 permanent staff and today the business makes over N5m per annum.  My Law firm was started with N15m with 9 employees and also makes well above 5m per annum.

I will say that Awesome Treasures foundation played major role in my life, as the various messages I heard plunged me into starting my business and today, I am not just an entrepreneur but an employer of labour.

I have about 2 people I am currently mentoring, though unofficially.  I have been able to affect lives positively, as I share my experience with frieds, colleagues and also encourage younger colleagues to work hard and work smart and network.  I also speak at events meant for youths and in the recent past, precisely in January 2015, I was a guest speaker at the recent YWCA event for your citizens, at City Hall Onikan..  I believe one of the ways to encourage people to give in their best is providing condusive environment, therefore, I encourage my colleagues and staff to aspire higher by giving them opportunities to explore and also creating a conducive working environment.
