Speaking on the event, Founder and CEO of ARTELIER Lifestyle Consultants, Ngozi Princewill Utchay remarked that Future First Ladies, the company’s flagship finishing school programme, was birthed after a series of 21st Century EtiquetteTM events. “Before Future First LadiesTM, we used to host 21st Century Etiquette to polish young people and prepare them to interact with the rest of the society in a more informed manner. Feedback and data from our 21st Century Etiquette events showed us that young people wanted more; the digital age had presented them with a plethora of options on how to live their lives and it was important to have the right mentors and role models to serve as guides in determining their outcome in life.”

“For each edition, our speakers and role models are not just selected for their skills or achievements but out of their passion to see young people succeed. Past Alumni of Future First Ladies have gone on to incubate businesses, progress in their careers and approach their roles in the society with more confidence, it’s exciting to see the possibilities that come from each edition and this year will be no different”, enthused Mrs. Princewill Utchay.

The event which has been highly subsidized costs N50,000 to participate in, covering refreshments, lunch, training materials and certificates. Participants can also look forward to practical hands-on sessions on skincare, makeup, health and wellbeing, styling and fitness.

Classes run from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays only.
