ulti-talented Temitope Olukunle has established herself as a budding entrepreneur to look out for with the remarkable business audacity she has so far displayed in her young career. Known for her ability to think outside the box, she is able to make sizeable capital out of ideas, visions, and strategies for companies that seek her services. But what is even more remarkable about this young fellow is her ability to combine her private entrepreneurial engagements with full-time corporate job. She is currently an Executive Assistant/Chief Operating Officer at Avant Facilities Services Limited, a real estate, facility management, and corporate cleaning company in Lagos. Simultaneously, she is working very hard to build her personal brand, Styleover Fashion Hub.
As Executive Assistant, Temitope plays multiple roles bringing her versatile acumen to bear on the diverse tasks assigned to her. She provides administrative and business support to the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, manages the flow of information between the company’s leadership and members of staff, creates travel plans for the management team and ensures that workers comply with company policies on resource utilization. Prior to this time, she had served in the same capacity during her brief spell at Britelson Nigeria Limited, a limited liability company specializing in property management, ICT, and real estate education in Abuja, which she joined in 2017. A distinctive aspect of Temitope’s business development attributes can easily be seen in her social media activities, which was a source of considerable income for Britelson Nigeria Limited. Her vision being to make it to the top of the business world early, Temitope ensures that all her ideas are clearly articulated and devoid of vagueness and the stress associated with implementing imprecise plans.
As an entrepreneur, Temitope is building a brand for herself in the form of a clothing line dedicated to satisfy the fashion elite of the society. The exquisiteness and uniqueness of the apparel that roll out of her line suggest a trendiness that is forward-looking and yet enduring.
Whatever she has become today is not by accident as Temitope always had a clear picture of what she wanted to do with her life. While still at school, the multi-definitional aspect of her personality was already being consciously moulded, reflected today in her self-confessed ability to manage several businesses simultaneously. While studying at the Ekiti State University, she engaged herself in self-development trainings beyond her core academic duties. She was a volunteer team leader for the Rotary International Youth raising funds for projects, as well as the Deputy Governor of her class.
Temitope is not only driven by profit making in business, she is passionate about the transfer of business know-how to start-up entrepreneurs, specifically teaching students how to apply and maximize their skills for income generation. The Academy of Personal Development and Business Solutions, a micro digital training platform she created was motivated by this interest. On daily basis she loads the platform with contents on innovation and creativity, sales generation, marketing and business development to benefit young digital-minded entrepreneurs. Her short videos, graphics, and other forms of contents have equally captured the imagination of Nigerian youths online. Temitope has recently expanded her interest to include online teenage mentorship on WhatsApp. Talk To Us, is a platform she recently created to advocate social decency and entrepreneurship among the youths.
The fact that Temitope has a background in Geography and Planning makes her story all the more intriguing, and puts into bolder relief her ingenuity and versatility. Her professional certifications and Diplomas which come from diverse areas of interest are many. They include Human Resources Management, Disruptive Innovation, Structure, and Strategy (Hexavian Academy); Business Marketing and Sales Training (Foundation 360); Project Management (British Project Management Academy); and Health, Safety and Environment (British International Safety Organization), among others. All this only help to burnish the abilities of this extraordinary talent who is currently a graduate student at the University of Lagos, studying for her Professional Masters in Diplomacy and Strategic Management.
