The keynote speaker of the Under 45 CEO Business Summit, on the theme “Repositioning Business for a New Global Economy”, and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Onitsha Business School, Professor Olusegun Sogbasan, said “any business which only focuses on making money without analysis and recording does not survive.
“Business is not buying and selling, done by traders. A businessman is that person who is always available to deliberately advocate for an identifiable need.
“So any business that generates profit without gain will not survive the test of time.
“If you can’t see the gain of a business, the profit of the business is not sustainable.
