Thrive Shuttle Initiative (TSI) is an organization focused on bridging the gap of unemployment in Nigeria.
I first got to know about TSI in my third year in the university, in 2012. At that point in my life, I was kind of confused about what aspect of my field I would go into and what I would do with my life.
The conference was an eye-opener for me, it boasted of great speakers like Dele Abioye – The National Project Manager but now General Manager, 7Up Bottling Company; ‘Gbenga Sesan – Executive Director, Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN); Akinwale Ekundayo – Managing Partner, Stillvoice Consulting, amongst others.
This conference fueled my love for attending conferences and also opened my eyes to possibilities that I was blind to before.
Thrive Shuttle Initiative, aims to train individuals, mostly students, to unearth, develop, and launch their potentials. This is done under the banner of ‘Campus To Corporate World’ Conference.
