A considerable number of participants turned up for the inaugural edition of SK-Pharmanews Interactive Forum.
Speaking at the event which held during the 90th Annual PSN Conference in Umuahia, Abia State on November 9, 2017, Pharm. Sesan Kareem, public speaker and columnist in Pharmanews noted that some people are wired to focus more on negatives than positive thoughts.
Rather than perceive fear as discouraging factor, the speaker fondly known as ‘SK’ encouraged young pharmacists to see it as motivation aimed at reaching their goals.
According to Kareem, the two keys to every successful life hinge more on what people believe and what they do.
“For instance, most of the things that I have achieved in life were borne out of vision. If you develop yourself as the scripture admonishes, you will wine and dine before kings.
“Success does not just happen overnight. You must work hard to earn it, just as my becoming an aide to the PSN president was not by accident. The truth is that if your dream doesn’t scare you, you are still playing,” he stressed.
The highlight of the programme climaxed with introduction of participants from different states, questions and answer segment which bothered on life and business success as well as individual experience on what gives them motivation.
In attendance were Pharmacists Stella Onyegari (Delta), Akpan Edifofon (Enugu), Adekunle Kasali (Lagos), Abdul Mustapha (Ilorin), Tolulope Oke (Ogun), Hanson Ekomobong (Abuja), Unyime Etukudoh (Akwa Ibom), Victor Chukwu (Ebonyi), Adaobi Okeke (Ilorin), Akudo Alli (Abia), Solomon Ojigbo (Lagos).
