What does your business do and how did it start?

Our business is an event and wedding planning-based service. It is a professional service that helps individuals or organizations organize and execute various events, with a specific focus on weddings. This includes coordinating details such as venue selection, catering, décor, entertainment, and logistics to ensure the event runs smoothly and meets the client’s expectations. It started many years ago; however, 17 years ago it officially kickstarted with a fabulous princess-themed one-year-old party planned to perfection for my daughter.

What was one of the challenges in planning the Maiden Edition of Bond With Me 007 in Lagos?

One of the main challenges for the Maiden Edition of “Bond With Me 007” in Lagos was establishing the event’s presence in the local “Lagos” market so to speak. Convincing the populace and established businesses to embrace a new event concept that has been wildly successful in the United States and aligns with the vision posed a notable and particularly challenging aspect of the planning process. Overcoming this hurdle required creative marketing strategies and effective communication to build trust and interest in the event within the Lagos event space. Despite its apparent simplicity, overcoming this challenge proved to be a substantial undertaking, necessitating the concerted efforts of a dedicated team to achieve the eventual success we experienced.

Who has been your greatest inspiration and what motivates you?

Honestly, I draw inspiration from many resources such as successful industry professionals, influential designers, and even personal experiences. For me, motivation often stems from a passion for creating memorable moments and bringing clients’ visions to life.
