The significance of technology in shaping the future was a key theme. Atanda urged businesses to view technology as a mindset that encompasses both tangible hardware and intangible elements, including thoughts, emotions, and convictions. He stressed the importance of aligning a vision and objectives with a forward-looking perspective.

Notably, Atanda recognized the impact of Africa’s youthful population on corporate governance. He advised business leaders to engage with younger, digitally-savvy demographics, utilizing digital media for feedback and improvement. “Generally, the younger demographics are adept digital users, consistently connected, and they hold higher expectations from brands that cater to their needs,” he stated. “It is, therefore, imperative that we assume a more assertive role in articulating the value proposition of our businesses in this digitally interconnected world.”

The Chartered Institute of Directors (CIoD) Nigeria event saw the attendance of distinguished individuals from various sectors, including Alhaji Tijani M. Borodo, President and Chairman of Council at CIoD Nigeria, Amina Oyagbola, Second Vice President at CIoD Nigeria, and Dele Alimi, Director General and CEO of CIoD Nigeria.
