What I Do

Business Strategy

I work with clients to examine what organisations do to stay relevant in this volatile, competitive and fast paced operating environment. I combine my expertise in global strategy tools with my in-depth understanding of the local environment to create winning strategies and execution frameworks that assists my clients to achieve the necessary growth they desire.

Process Engineering

I support businesses to adopt well proven process engineering methodologies and technology to optimize their processes. I take pleasure in driving process efficiency as it ultimately helps drive cost reduction, improve business performance, identify and mitigate operational risk areas and increase value delivery to customers.

Organization Transformation

I work with Founders, Boards of Directors, and CEOs to help implement end-to-end enterprise transformation that aligns with their growth stage, enables them compete effectively and adequately deal with future changes in the industry and the global economy. This includes Organisational designs and Structures, operating model review, strategy, governance and culture change.

Startup/SME Advisory

I am the host of the annual Caladium Lagos SME Bootcamp, Nigeria’s foremost capacity development initiative for SMEs founded in 2018. We have supported over 5,000 SMEs across various industries and hope to support more SMEs as we expand across other territories.

Merger and Acquistion Advisory

I advise clients on their M&A transactions and oversee the effective structuring, negotiations, and close of M&A deals to enable my clients derive maximum value for money from their deals. These include financial and commercial due diligence, financial modelling, business valuation, post M&A integration and opportunity analysis for mergers and acquisitions.

SME Financing and Community Building

I offer a full range of community-based technology solutions to SMEs through my Tech-startup, Fedhagap. Fedhagap is committed to helping African SMEs increase turnover and scale, despite working capital limitations. We do this by solving supply chain inefficiencies through invoice discounting. We provide reliable and scalable financial solutions that put our SME community at greater advantage in their transactions.
