Delivering the keynote address, Abudu encouraged event entrepreneurs to keep working hard and never stop breaking boundaries.

“Have big ideas for yourself and for your business and if your ideas do not scare you, then they are not big enough. We are more than capable as Nigerians and it’s important for us to showcase our capabilities to the rest of the world,” she added.

“Never stop dreaming. If you are not obsessed with what you’re doing, you’re probably doing the wrong thing,” she said.
