    'Pages of Shadow-a-Leader' Mini-series: 02 - SaL in the Wild

    'Pages of Shadow-a-Leader' Mini-series: 02 - SaL in the Wild

    In this mini-series, we take an informal approach to evaluate the experiences of select scholars of the present cohort in the ongoing Shadow-a-Leader program. For more context, the Shadow-a-Leader program is the phase of the NUTM Scholars program that involves every Scholar with a leader in the industry in a 6-week long internship; this provides a more experiential approach to each Scholars' learning and an opportunity for networking. 

    In this episode we have fun conversations with two scholars who had their Shadow-a-Leader very far away, in Bonny Island, Niger Delta and in Nairobi, Kenya. While most of us had ours in Lagos, and even remotely, they had theirs in the wild. Through this episode we explore deeply their motivations for choosing so far, their experiences at these locations, and how it eventually turned out for them.
