Ex-staff of Bristow Helicopters Nigeria, has been urged to invest their benefits wisely by taking advantage of new opportunities in their environment.
The ex-staff, at an entrepreneurial training organised by Bristow Helicopter were challenged to seek for opportunities in various sectors of the economy.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the three days programme in Lagos, facilitator of the training and Chief Executive Officer of Safecrest Consulting Services Limited, Mr. Solomon Ohiomah said the programme is designed to assist the participants to amongst others, plan for a qualitative life after former employment and identify available business opportunities in the business environment.
Also, it is to give a guide to the fundamentals of generating business ideas, preparing business plans, setting up and managing a business as well as personal finance management.
Ohiomah explained that leaving formal employment is neither a calamity nor a death sentence, rather it time to retire and re-fire into other areas of human endeavours and a time to embark on new ways of life.
He said government and companies must prepare workers to look forward with confidence to retirement as a new and inevitable phase of life.
