You know personal development is just what it is – personal. Growth has to come from a place of consciousness and intentionality that others cannot give you. While you may be well placed with opportunities and talent, you must have the will to grow and develop yourself for you to experience growth. That being said, last year, I shared with you tech conferences a forward-thinking individual should look out for. One of the conferences I shared with you was the Techpoint Build. Never one to hoard information from you, I am going to share all the information I have so I can contribute to your growth.

Techpoint Build is a 24-hours startup event in West Africa. It features conferences running all through the day, an exhibition that connects startups with other SMEs as well as conferences on business, pitching, and business training. It attracts people from different countries in West Africa as well as investors from different countries. Techpoint Build is the largest conference and exhibition that connects the startup and SME community with all industries.

I came across this quote by Terry Orlick and it resounded deep with me and I wanted to share it with you. I hope it gets you thinking as it did me.

The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion.”
