To live a balanced existence, one must explore a varied range of experiences ~Ezinne Chinkata, Musings, 2016.
..words proven to me in even more glaring clarity earlier today at the launch of a book jointly written by Chief Folake Solanke , SAN & Prof Fabian Ajogwu, SAN. Theirs was a book on Oral & Written Advocacy: Law and Practice. You may wonder what a Legal book has to do with my career as a Fashion Consultant?.
Prof Fabian Ajogwu (SAN) is extremely smart; he is also my brother in-law. I was certain the experience would broaden my mind. I must also confess to another agenda, I was super intrigued by the co-author, 84 year old, Chief Justice Solanke. I was eager to see and hear her speak.
I listened in rapt attention to deeply enriching/erudite speeches by highly revered carefully picked out legal practitioners and their counterparts. I was in super fine company indeed…In no time, I felt my heart-rate quicken and beat rather loudly in my chest; a sensation I recognised for exactly what it was:
c. New Knowledge
I shall elaborate further…You see…
“Brilliance , Excellence , Dignity, Hard-work,Discipline, Fervour, Honesty; are qualities necessary for success irrespective of what sectors we belong to. All these qualities were present in the room in full abundance.. and I was privileged to hear it being projected in crystal clarity.
Congratulations to the heroic Chief Folake Solanke and my truly inspiring brother inlaw; Prof Fabian Ajogwu!!
.. and to my darling Zinkata readers.. Here’s to a strategically wiser 2016..
PS:I bought the book as well..and have already started in on it!!
