19 October 2018 2 min. read

Nigerian management consultancy Phillips Consulting is set to sponsor the Monthly Breakfast Meeting of the Nigeria South Africa Chamber of Commerce this month, due to take place today at the Eko Hotel in Lagos. The event will feature a speech from the Minister of Power, Works and Housing.              

Nigeria and South Africa are respectively the two largest economies in Africa, and much of the economic development on the continent rests on their welfare. Intuitively, both economies have been engaged in collaborative efforts to ensure this development, a large part of which is the Nigeria South Africa Chamber of Commerce.

The collaborative forum holds a Monthly Breakfast meeting, where experts offer insights and open the floor for discussion on key topics of economic development. This month, the event is sponsored by Phillips Consulting, and will feature a number of illustrious speakers, including Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing in Nigeria.

The Minister has been called to offer his views on the specific topic of “The true situation of electric power today and prospects for the future.” Public sentiment in Nigeria has been displaying restlessness around the power situation in the country recently, primarily due to shortage of supply and consequently frequent outages.

The country has been making consolidated efforts towards ramping up power generation schemes, particularly in the domain of renewable energy. Collaboration with South Africa will allow for a crucial exchange of ideas, given the latter’s relatively stable electricity distribution mechanisms.

The event will also feature one of the first public appearances of Managing Director of Phillips Consulting Robert Taiwo, who took the reigns at the firm in December last year. Taiwo is expected to speak on the firm’s strategy in the near future and the revisions in its brand identity.

Chairman of Phillips Consulting Foluso Phillips will also be present at the event to offer his insights on the state of the Nigerian economy. Phillips is also the Chairman of the Nigeria South Africa Chamber of Commerce, and has been called to offer his insights at a number of events across Nigeria in recent times.

“We are quite excited at this new phase in the life of our 26 year old firm. Its personally refreshing for me, to see my vision of building a sustainable institution to outlive us all, becoming a reality. With Rob at the helm of affairs and this redefinition of the firm as personified by a simple but refreshed brand image, I feel that a new generation is being truly born at Phillips Consulting. I believe there are exciting times ahead for us and our innumerable clients,” said Phillips.
