The training, attended by 51 participants dwelt on sensitizing the consciousness of the students on the vast opportunities available for digital reinvention for the future.

According to Olufunke Akinloye, the company’s Chief Learning Officer, “the training is our own little way of helping our country prepare for a future that would be purely eco-digital”.

Toolz Academy has partnered with Street Toolz Ltd and Digital Marketing Institute [DMI], Ireland, in creating a Digital Marketing syllabus that is Nigeria-centric.

Akinloye continued: “Toolz Academy is tapping on the expertise and competence of Street Toolz and DMI to educate anyone that cares, on the great digital marketing opportunities that are opening up everyday in the world and how to take advantage of these opportunities.

“We understand that many more digitally-educated minds would be needed in the workplace in the very near future,” Akinloye added.

For starters, the participants evaluated themselves on their digital marketing status, an examination that enabled the facilitators to properly understand the challenges faced by the participants.

One of the participants, Chinelo Ujubuom, afterward said the training was an eye opener. “It was very enlightening. I knew next to nothing about digital marketing but with the two-day free training, I have some understanding that would help my new business.

And corroborating the power of new media, Ujubuom revealed she got the free training information from the Internet. “Nobody told me – I saw it and it was God-sent. It was what I needed at the right time.

“I hope to come back to take the more comprehensive course so that I stop all my supposed assumptions.”

Another of the participants, Michael Olakunle is interested in doing a fuller because he knows the future would be totally digital. “I got to know about the training through an online search because I am aware that the future belongs to digital marketing.

Olakunle continued, “For me I have learnt a lot about digital marketing and I am willing to learn more. I will definitely be coming back for the PDDM [Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing] in May.
