LAGOS, Nigeria – Entertainment Consulting and Talent Management Firm, iManage Africa, has announced a partnership with Mr Eazi’s Empawa Africa, for its 2019 edition of the 3-month “Talent Management Training with Godwin Tom’’.
This well-thought-out initiative is tailored for artists, managers, PR enthusiasts and creative entrepreneurs, who are interested in building or advancing their careers.
Being the entertainment industry’s most monumental partnership geared towards growth and youth empowerment, this collaboration will birth more young driven individuals and enthusiasts who are passionate about making a mark. It will also spark up conversations that border around the growth and development of the industry.
Throwing full weight behind the trainings, Empawa Africa will sponsor 5 young entrepreneurs through the programme and further support them as they progress in their careers.
For what started off as a movement to enable a more informed entertainment industry workforce, the “Talent Management Training with Godwin Tom” seeks to provide platforms that equip and cater to the information, skills and networking needs of young hopefuls.
Speaking on the partnership, Founder & CEO of iManage Africa, Godwin Tom, said in a video;
“For me, the true test of power and influence is in its distribution. Over the last 3 years, I have seen the power of creating opportunities for others. Nigeria and Africa at large is doing great delivering great talents to the world, but we do not have enough people helping to ensure that these stars get the best deals.
More importantly, we are not doing a great job in creating our own solutions. If we won’t do it, then we must prepare the people who will. Too many people are in the business because they stumbled on it. We need more people who know why they are here. We need more professionals. The pieces of training are a good start for these conversations.”
Aside from organizing the training series, the renowned Talent Manager & Entertainment Consultant has over the years contributed massively in grooming and developing Africa’s most sought after artists. Some of the notable individuals include Wande Coal, Wizkid, MI, Beverly Naya, Waje, among others.
The management training will spread over a 3-month period with courses such as; Talent Management, Social Media and Its Relevance, Media and PR, Music and The Law and Much more. The students will learn about Project Management, Interaction with Mentors, Partnering Businesses, Real life management situations, Job Opportunities, Bi-Monthly In-Class Sessions, Weekly Online Classes, First-Hand Experience on the job and Recruitment Opportunities for Entertainment Business.
Scheduled to run through the months of September to November, registrations for the full program has closed as activities have fully commenced. However, to join the classes, click here. http://linktr.ee/godwint
