Expanding the market opportunities for  innovative technology companies servicing the Oil  & Gas Industry. 

LoftyInc Allied Partners and its partners, VisionInvent (Chief Host) & Tide Wind Energy hosted  The Leadership Network Happy Hour on Monday October 25, 2010 at the Aloft Hotel in Houston.  It was a very successful event.   The core objective of the event was to increase foreign market visibility for American technology companies servicing the energy and Oil & Gas Industries and this was amply realized.

Our guest of honor Mr. Alade Ajibola (President of Nigerian Society of Engineers”, member, Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN), and member, Governing Council of the Nigerian Content Development & Monitoring Board (NCDMB), of the Oil and Gas industry in Nigeria) was very impressed with the caliber and  innovations of attending companies.

Mr. Alade Ajibola acknowledged that it is important for American companies to seek legitimate, certified and credible engineering companies in Nigeria to partner with for opportunities in the region; so as not to be exploited or to undermine the scope of work/opportunities. 

 As a matter of fact this is now more important since the Nigeria government has made it a law for foreign expatriates to have local content service partners on their  projects. 
Mr. Ajibola stated his goal as the President of the Nigerian Society of Engineers  to build an increased coalition between American innovative companies and Nigerian engineers.  He believes the coalition

between foreign and local engineers will bring great service to the region in a way of engineering perfection, mutual education, productivity and innovation.   Mr. Ajibola plans to spotlight the American companies that attended the event to the society of engineering firms in Nigeria, as deemed appropriate.  

Leadership Networking in Progress
