Little about me

Product/ Project Manager | AI/ML, Customer discovery, prototyping, Jira | MBA, MS Digital Technology, PMP, PSM 1

I am an experienced business analyst with 5+ years of experience, now a digital product manager. I believe technology solutions are instruments to drive change and progress in society nonetheless it's essential it empathises with the existing culture of its audience; a Product Manager optimizes this objective to benefit all stakeholders. My greatest satisfaction has come while involving myself in such acts, including the ideation and delivery of innovative solutions to arrest pockets of social discomfort.

Over the course of my professional life, I have worked in a wide range of businesses across industries including a stint in the public sector realizing benefits to stakeholders. I have developed skills in leadership, situational analysis, emotional intelligence, strategy development, project/ stakeholder/ team management, product development strategies, design thinking, etc. and I look to leverage all in my next post.

Some of my standout personal and professional involvement are:

  1. Led fellow undergraduate students to sell a final-year compendium that evolved into an autobiography web app.
  2. Collaborated with top government executives in conceptualizing and executing multiple academic initiatives to serve 7M+ students, ~45K teachers, and 19K+ schools.
  3. Member of Lagos State delegation to develop bilateral relationships in the education sector.
  4. Trained 100+ ministry staff to use technology software and trained 1,000+ new graduates in business planning strategies and ultimately integrate into the workplace.
  5. Project-managed 80 simultaneous unveiling events of school infrastructure across the State.
