We have invested six years and thousands of dollars in a research effort about GOING GLOBAL. IDEAS GOING GLOBAL is one of the many outcomes of this research. The IDEAS GOING GLOBAL BUSINESS COCKTAIL is a Nation-Building and Thought Leadership Exchange. It will take place at 4pm, in Abuja, Port-Harcourt and Lagos, Nigeria December 9th, 11th and 17th 2016 in Lagos, Abuja and Port-Harcourt respectively. The cocktail is co-organized by MICROSOFT and the OLAKUNLE SORIYAN COMPANY. It is about THOUGHT REVOLUTION with a single-minded focus on inspiring and impacting THINKERS, INFLUENCERS and DECISION MAKERS with the NEW THINKING, MENTAL POSTURE, PENETRATIVE IDEAS and COMPELLING TOOLS for GOING GLOBAL from Africa to the World. Our theme is 'a NEW ECONOMY: The African Imperative'. The IDEAS GOING GLOBAL BUSINESS COCKTAIL is NOT a PAID EVENT. It is FREE OF CHARGE but STRICTLY by REGISTRATION/INVITATION.



The assumption is simple: It is that the MOST PROSPEROUS NATIONS in the world have the BIGGEST BRANDS. There is NO JAPAN without TOYOTA, SONY, MITSUBISHI and the likes; there is NO KOREA without SAMSUNG, LG, KIA, HYUNDIA and the likes; there is NO GERMANY without OPEL, BMW, MERCEDES BENZ, and the likes; and with the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, you can even sing a song; MICROSOFT, FORD, COCA COLA, TWITTER, FACEBOOK and so on. The POOREST NATIONS HAVE NO VISIBLE and STRONG GLOBAL BRANDS that is attracting purchasing power from all over the world and bringing it to headquarters at home with significant impact on GDP and Per Capita Income.
Also, Nations have continued to find prosperity by ensuring that their people are not just able to invest in the home-grown ideas (as represented by goods and services), but that home-grown ideas are receiving patronage from people of diverse cultures, particularly through technology (riding on the back of telecommunication, computers and the internet). This is how nations must behave in the new economy. GOING GLOBAL also helps strong organizations and institutions to know that a problem in one market can be an opportunity in another; and one market can be the shock absorber for volatility of in another. It is also that opportunities must be defined differently such that thinking globally will allow for data gathering and information sharing from a helicopter view.

Africa need to have these conversations; and more than that, Africa needs its young people accepting responsibility for big projects with global bearing. We are so sadly DISTRACTED by the "BIG CROWN on the heads of ONE-EYED KINGs in the land of the BLIND" that empowers people in so-called 3rd World environments to focus on PASSING the TEST OF LOCALITY at the EXPENSE of the TEST OF UNIVERSALITY. Entities in the business, the arts, sciences, sports and even religion, have continued to raise the reputation capital of nations, impacting on GDP and Per Capita Income in the process. IDEAS GOING GLOBAL will ignite NEW VOICES of GLOBAL THINKERS, DECISION MAKERS AND INFLUENCERS across diverse sectors to make significant GLOBAL DIFFERENCE for our BLESSED CONTINENT.
