      When recently asked for advice on making good career choices she said, “To stand out, be strategic and future ready,do what companies have to do. Keep it top of mind that times are changing and the world will look vastly different in five years from wherever you start. What will you contribute, where will you be, what would you be the best at and how can you make the greatest impact? Allow yourself to really look around and factor in the disruption that is sure to come. Educate yourself and get really comfortable with change. Then when you think you have found a fit, you will be in a stronger position to make that a reality than if you didn’t scan the horizon”. 

      Chinenye believes that change is our inheritance and our future and has set up Iconify businesses harness and bend change to their advantage.
