In this photo are two of the greatest influences on my
Vinita Bali, on the left, was Sales & Marketing Director at Cadbury Nigeria (CN) when I was appointed Brand Manager-Bournvita in March 1992. She was on a one year-exchange program from Cadbury, India. From VB (in CN style) I better understood the power of data, analytics and more.
Biodun Jaji (MAJ) on the right, succeeded VB as Sales &
Marketing Director. I could write volumes on him, but sufficient to say that
from him I gleaned learnings on creativity, strategy, presentation skills, and
more, including the power of having a clean desk!
