The Chief Executive of Stanbic IBTC Holdings, Dr. Demola Sogunle, has underscored diligence; constant learning; knowledge and values; among others as key factors to unlocking secrets of personal and professional success.

He spoke in a keynote during the Stanbic IBTC Youth Leadership Series, YLS 2024 with the theme; “Unlocking the Secret and Strategies to Personal and Professional Success” in Lagos.

Sogunle listed other factors to include: character; continuous learning and improvement; bringing imagination to reality; even as he advised participants at the event tagged “The Growth cod” to imbibe values of integrity that engender trust.

His words: “Continuous learning, continuous improvement would get you to a higher level of continuous growth. Knowledge and application of knowledge is very important.

“I collected my certificate after 19 years of graduation from the university; certificate is not the issue, but the knowledge and the application. The important thing is that it is not about the paper, it is the knowledge and values you have been able to extract.

“You have to work out your imagination into a reality; you have to work out diligence, values, character, and others to be able to move on. You can achieve your dream and vision if you follow these.

“Integrity is key, there are eight values that can make you work with us at Stanbic IBTC, we do not tolerate lies. I work in an organisation where we have very powerful values; within those values are your personal values. We act with integrity; I do not struggle with that.

“It is important to flock with the right set of peers, don’t hang around mediocre people, do not tolerate mediocrity, if you tolerate mediocrity, you are already accepting failure and excuses.

“One of the reasons Nigerians have trusted us so much, especially in the pension business is because of our values in the organisation. One of our subsidiaries reported almost 40 percent market share, it was massive. In that business, 20 percent of official salary earners in Nigeria trust us because of the values.”
