Speaking to the audience, Prem explained the importance of making savings and setting practical goals for yourself in order to one day own a successful business. He added that professional life is a marathon, not a sprint.

Prem’s speech was followed by a Q&A session and lots of fun moments. The event ended with everyone sharing Nigerian food.
