One Thing I Learnt While Hosting the Danish Ambassador to Nigeria on My Channel
In October 2016, I met the Danish ambassador to Nigeria-His Excellency, Ambassador Torben Gettermann at an event- “She forum Africa”, where I was speaking on the power of authentic stories as I shared my live streaming journey- one of the many platforms I was privileged to speak on, in 2016. A year earlier, I was going to pay to attend that same event but with the success story of my live streaming journey, I was invited to be a part of a Panel session on Personal Development. Before I spoke, the ambassador left so he missed my session, but after the event he was very active on twitter as he tweeted about the event. I reached out to him about his speech which was really phenomenal. I re-tweeted some of his tweets and a conversation started. My Big Lesson... Sometimes we want to do some things and we think it is impossible. I am one to go ahead and do it, the worse that can happen is get a no or it fails and that will not make me feel bad. It’s just going to let me know, maybe the timing is not right or it wasn’t meant to be. I introduced myself to the Ambassador formally and asked him if he would be interested in being a guest on my show?. The Ambassador responded positively and he became a special guest on the “Sparkle with Naomi” show. What an honor for me. I just thought to try and he responded positively. No matter what you need to do, you have to take that first move.
