In the words of Mrs. St. Matthew-Daniel CEO of Jacinta Ltd. “I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I have been consulting for a long time but knowledge is power and constantly listening under the voice of industry gurus especially in the international market place is unquantifiable. Additional ‘know-how’ of how to handling SME’s which falls under my portfolio as a Women and Youth Empowerment Advocacy is so enriching.
I hope this entry into the Nigerian market will mark the beginning of a brand that enhances those who are Consultants and those trying to offer a service to a nitch market place. I can see it going into the neighboring countries much later”.
