Hi, I’m Abimbola Balogun, lawyer, Co-founder and Executive Director of So fresh, Nigeria’s leading healthy food chain with multiple locations. I help businesses build great teams through my online courses, coaching and consultation.
As an HR professional with almost a decade experience, I actively manage and develop people daily. With the right business structures, HR processes and corporate governance, our staff strength has grown from 1 to over 150 across multiple branches in Nigeria, and we recently attracted foreign equity investment.
I am an alumnus of the Enterprise development Centre, Pan Atlantic University where I bagged a certificate in Entrepreneurial management and a member of Chartered Institute of Personnel Management. I was listed among the 100 most inspiring women by Ynaija in 2017 and in 2019, I am honored to be among Nigeria’s 100 most inspiring women. As a John Maxwell Team Member, I am a firm believer that everyone can become a person of influence. Today, I speak at national conferences and my story has been featured on various platforms like EDC, radio stations, DSTV, Tvconnect, Hi-impact tv, and National newspapers.
I created a FREE hiring checklist for you because the foundation for hiring right starts from there and I want you to start right. My team has been our biggest success factor and I desire to see more African businesses build a winning team that delivers profitable business growth.
