On behalf of Olori Boye-Ajayi (Author), we invite you to attend the virtual launch of the First Edition of the Borderless Trade Book on the 4th of September 2020 at 10 am. The book is packed with resources that can help entrepreneurs seize the opportunities associated with exporting out of Africa, as well as how to go about it and provide opportunities that will encourage growth.

Over the past few years, the global economy has taken different turns, often times a downward spiral and other times a rebound especially right now. These uncertainties have left a lot of entrepreneurs burdened with the next steps to take business-wise.

A lot of African entrepreneurs are looking to expand beyond Africa but are often stuck as they do not know where to begin or what exactly to do when it comes to export. There are so many demands to be catered to beyond the shores of Africa, and ‘Borderless Trade’ by Olori Boye-Ajayi, answers all the questions about exporting.

Olori Boye- Ajayi (Author)

Borderless Trade Synopsis:

The big question for a lot of people is, WHAT NEXT? This question is predicated on the assumption that there is something to look forward to as though we’re not already in that “what next” phase. For the African entrepreneur looking to expand in an economy riddled with so much uncertainty, a new type of introspection is essential, one that sees beyond borders. Africa, with its population of over 1.2 billion people within its 55 member states is able to sustain its businesses through international trade, however, “Export” seems like such a far-fetched option for entrepreneurs as questions like “How do I start?”, “What do I do?” and “Where are my customers?” inundate their minds. These questions have prevented entrepreneurs from expanding beyond their home countries to cater to the demands that exist beyond. Enter TheBorderless Trade book by Olori Boye-Ajayi. This book is the ultimate export guide to the entrepreneur eager to be more.

Through her first-hand experience in the world of exporting, Olori Boye-Ajayi takes the readers through simple steps needed to start an arm of exporting anything showing that exporting today is easier than it was 20 years ago and is way more than seaports and containers; technology has closed the gap between businesses and their customers, both near and far.

The premise of this book is that everybody can export, even you.

Award-winning keynote speaker, Kwame Opoku from Ghana, extensively discussed the topic “Developing the mindset of a futurist ” and he emphasized about how technology is future and how people can work better so that robots won’t take over their jobs in the nearest future.

The sales guru herself, Just Ibe, charged entrepreneurs with her topic “Unpacking the sales toolkit”, where she challenged people in business to give more value and how to go about it.

Debola Deji-Kurunmi, popularly known as DDK, dissected the topic “Africa on the map”. She passionately talked about being a part of the system in order to make positive changes.

Asides the coaching sessions, there were breakout sessions, as well as questions and answers segments where the moderator, Toyosi Etim-Effiong, asked the coaches questions that the participants sent in and also talked about how the educational system should be improved.

“Our goal was 2,000 Africans across 4 countries but with technology, We had a stunning 6K views across 46 countries which included  Australia, Cape Verde, Morocco, Tanzania, Malaysia, Luxembourg, Rwanda, Qatar, Lithuania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, France, UK, USA, Italy, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa and several more. 

We were humbly joined by the inmates from KIRIKIRI maximum women’s prison from Lagos, Nigeria;  it was truly an odds-defied event”.

At the end of the conference, the participants gave testimonials about how the Fix-IT Conference was indeed a life-changing experience.
