My name is Igoche Ikwue and i was born outstanding zeal to succeed despite challenges i encountered growing up in Nigeria but have always remained focused.
Today part of my focus is bridging UK and Africa businesses by promoting bilateral trade talks and assists companies intending to invest in other African economy or the UK bridging communication gaps.
My mission is to promote bilateral trade agreement between UK companies and African companies thus allowing businesses the opportunity to export their services locally and internationally purposely for growth and development.
I have used my company BIZKONNECT as a platform lead a trade mission to the South East of Nigeria in May 2014 and it was tagged “Exposing African businesses to global opportunities” congregated prominent and reputable businesses of the South East Nigeria E.g (Innoson Vehicle manufacturing co Ltd, Cutix plc, Chicason group, Ibeto group etc), the South East public sector officials and the British high commission was duly represented by the UKTI.
My full itinerary on the trade missions was to give local businesses that global boost and harness strong economic partnership between businesses in Nigeria and the UK conglomerates.
I want to see a global business market with no boundaries to have unified trade relations between countries and also see Nigeria attracting the largest number of investors in Africa.
And my main focus also is to assist as many disadvantaged children and young person in Africa into full-time education so they can tap into their talent for the next generation of leaders.
