The founder and Principal Partner of African Achievers Awards Barr Rex Idaminabo joined both Mayor of Cambridge Councillor Jeremy Benstead and Cambridge MP Hon Daniel Zeichner to Inspire Young leaders from Cambridge University’s Leadership Academy.

The event which was hosted for students to dress as they would like to be addressed in 20 years saw all speakers sharing their personal experiences dated 20 years ago.

As the Special Guest Speaker, Rex Idaminabo who is also a celebrated international lawyer encouraged the students to discover the truth about themselves and delete the garbage the society has portrayed about them and their potentials.

Talking more on Leadership strategies, he encouraged them to; discover themselves, capture their vision, commit to principles and values, discipline themselves to protect their purpose, coordinate resources, avoid distraction and also mentor successors as leadership is a relay and must be passed on.

He was also awarded for his immense support towards the Academy’s pursuit in raising great future leaders for the world.

Other speakers who addressed the students included; Nathan Ardaiz (2016 Year Hear Fellow) and Sophie Bennett (Founder, Millionaire Author Academy) as the program was hosted by Chika Akinwale, Director of Programme at the Cambridge Leadership Academy at the Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge.

Rex Idaminabo was announced last week among the 2016 100 Most Influential Young Africans and has also been rated by Forbes among the Most Promising Young Entrepreneurs in Africa.

He is also the first ever West African member of the Advisory Council of the World Leaders Forum in Dubai and co-founded of the globally hosted Young CEOs Business Summit.

Rex Idaminabo has formerly received the coveted British Awards for African Development from the British Parliament and has hosted 6 Editions of the most prestigious awards for Africans in 4 African countries and Europe.
