“I have been an IAMN fellow for about six years and I have enjoyed every bit of the membership journey. My background is in medicine but I diversified into agribusiness through investments in oil palm processing and table water production. I started by taking IAMN Executive Diploma in Food and Agribusiness Management in 2015 and the program gave me a strong insight into the sector and guided my investment activities. Through my chapter (Lagos chapter), I have met several eminent agribusiness entrepreneurs who I network with regularly for different business activities. My wife who is also a co-director in our company is also a member and our business manager is a member as well. You can call us an IAMN family and we strongly believe this is the most functional agribusiness association in Africa. I recommend IAMN membership to anyone operating in the agribusiness industry. It will help you
