…As it unveils The Peak Performer platform and magazine.
In a bid to mainstream leadership development and share the true African story, The Peak Performer (TPP) hosted captains of industries, royalty as well as leaders in the public and private sector across Africa to the maiden edition of TPP 100 Recognition.
According to the Publisher of The Peak Performer, Dr Abiola Salami, he said: “The Peak Performer aims to be the essential provider of insights to every leader seeking growth in their pursuit of greatness.”
He further stated that “to inspire growth on the African continent, there is a need to tell the authentic African story by spotlighting credible leaders with admirable skills.”
The Peak Performer is a premium thought-leadership platform where African industry leaders, culture shapers and game changers gain insights to achieve peak performance in their given fields. At the moment, TPP has two expressions – a magazine and a portal.
Among those recognised and also inducted into the TPP Hall of Fame were Publisher & Chairman of The Guardian Newspaper, Lady Maiden Alex-Ibru; the founder of StanbicIBTC, Mr Atedo Peterside; Executive Chairman of the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS), Mr Ayodele Subair; Chairman of PZ Cussons, Mrs Ifeuko Omoigui Okauru; and Chairman, Ex-KPMG Africa, Mr Kunle Elebute.
The others are the Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of ThisDay Newspapers and Chairman of Arise Channel, Prince Nduka Obaigbena, and the Founder and Chairman of Coronation Capital Limited, Mr Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede.
Sanwo-Olu got the TPP Governor of the Year award while the Olu of Warri, His Majesty, Ogiame Atuwatse III was honoured with the TPP King of the Year even as the Olori of Warri, Olori Atuwatse III, got the TPP Queen of the Year award.
The award of TPP CEO of the Year (Africa) went to the Agbaoye of Ibadanland and Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Shoreline Energy International, Agbaoye Kola Karim.
He said: “Today is historic because we are celebrating 100 highly esteemed leaders across Africa. These are leaders who have displayed an unmatched commitment to excellence and sterling contributions to greatness in diverse sectors of the African continent.
“We discovered that if we genuinely want to inspire growth on the continent, we must commit to telling the authentic African story by spotlighting our credible leaders with admirable skills. To achieve this, we called for nominations in 2022. We recorded 1,683 entries, which gave us the top 100 today.”
On the launch of the TPP, Salami elaborated, “Today, our expression of TPP is as a portal and a magazine. They are both free to access.”
He further noted that TPP is aimed to be the essential provider of insights to every leader seeking growth in their pursuit of greatness.
Salami said, “The magazine features inspiring stories and experiences of leaders in sectors ranging from technology, problem-solving and change, leadership and entrepreneurship, environment, social and governance, personal growth and transformation, people, productivity and synergy, among others.”
“The portal, the magazine and this recognition will inspire the next generation of leaders to grow, aspire for more, and shatter the glass ceilings,” he added.
