MMPR FOCUS: NETWORK TO NET WORTH…

Hello everyone, it has been a minute since we brought you something new so here we are today to tell you about our day at a recent networking gathering of selected young Cameroonians from different fields held in London.

The soirée took place at a private room on the roof top of the famous Gherkin building at St Mary Axe on the weekend of 8th July organised by Héra; an investment risk analyst working in Central London.

Those in attendance were from a diverse background which included investment banking, insurance management, media, PR, luxury event management, digital marketing, online peer-to-peer transportation – all with a reunifying interest which was doing business in/with Africa.

After the discussion and the exchange, the take home element for us from this gathering further deepened the importance of networking in building one’s net worth.

Here are a few:-

  • Networking with the right mix of people can further / boost one’s career or business.
  • Networking is relationship building which forms the basis of any and every partnership or working collaboration. One never knows when one will need / depend on a relationship in the future.
  • Networking offers visibility; being visible and getting noticed by the right audience can be a big benefit for one and one’s business.
  • Networking is also about friendship and building confidence in one’s self.
  • Networking can be a positive influence. The people one hangs around with and talks to do influence who one is and what one does, so it is important to be surrounding one’s self with positive, uplifting people that can help one grow.

According to Héra, together we can become stronger therefore this gathering will be a recurrent affair; “it is abnormal that talented people should find themselves each on their own corner oblivious of what the other is doing” she added.

The platform aims to become a place to share ideas, partner and work together.

MMPR FOCUS: 6 FACTS ABOUT MYRA MAIMOH THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW NOW…

Always smiley and cheerful Myra Maimoh grew up within a big, Christian family in Bamenda, North West Region of Cameroon with her mother being her greatest musical influence.

Influenced by her mother’s discs of Skeeter Davies, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, African blues and throughout the spectrum from country music, traditional African music to jazz and pop, Myra started singing and dancing, while still in preschool at the age of 3. She wrote her first set of songs and stories at the age of 13 and since then Myra’s music journey has grown from strength to strength.

On Saturday August 13th Myra is scheduled to release her follow up album entitled UNIQ and she just cannot wait for you to take a listen. So while we wait the for the release date to come, here are 6 facts you definitely should know about her!

Myra1(3)

  1. Myra is known to be kind of goofy. She grew up in a house with a whole lot of laughter even during trying times when there was really no reasons to laugh or goof about. In her family, they don’t seem to take themselves too seriously although devoted to hard work. When it’s time to be serious, they do that really well and the rest of the time they are full of goofiness which as Myra states “I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon.”Oh well, a goofy artist is not bad at all is it?!!
  2. Always very smiley but you will be shocked to find out that Myra is known to be shy & reserved! Oh yes! However, when she is performing on stage all timidity and shyness fly out of the window! As a result, people who don’t know her very well usually either think she’s arrogant or too shy when they meet me for the first time. But after watching her on stage or knowing her more, they almost always ask this question – why did I ever think you were a quiet girl? Her response: beats me! [Haa haaa!!]
  3. Myra has 2 Masters degrees and she is an advocate for education especially for the girl child. Here is her story: at a point in her life, she wasn’t even sure she was ever going to be able to get even a Bachelors degree. Her family was going through some really turbulent times and they couldn’t quite afford a lot. The farther the dream was for her to go as far as she could with her education, the more resolved she was to get the best education. God opened door after door and before she knew it, she had not only a Bachelors degree from a great business school in Germany but also a Masters degree in International Management and another in International Business from another good university in the USA. “I know there are a lot of young girls back at home in Cameroon who probably won’t complete their studies and thus miss their chances to showcase their talent just because there is no one to help. Reason why I am a big advocate for educating the poor and hopeless because that was me at some point in my life.
  4. Myra loves food believe it or not – she loves trying out recipes, cooking and hosting. Her house is almost always full. She loves cooking all sorts of foods and usually has cooking competitions with her spouse. If it’s healthy, she will try it!
  5. Myra is an outdoor lover. If she could spend the whole day outside, that would make her ultimate day. She does like to wind down at home but the most fulfilling days for her is full days out with family and it mustn’t be full of adventurous things, she is happy with just walking for as long as she can.
  6. In case you only see her super glam side,  remember that Myra is a major tomboy! Till she was about 15, she played football with neighbourhood kids, wrestled, climbed trees, went hunting. Her mum had to do an intervention before she started acting like a  “Cameroonian girl” should! “I don’t even know what that means but found out it meant a lot to my mum.  I like photography and beauty shots only because it’s art but in reality, you will rarely see any makeup on my face. I think it’s overrated.” states Myra.
