Get to know Jennifer Gentet

Who is she? She's the founder and CEO Innovative Creations and Communications Limited (ICC), Author—6 Effective Steps to Your Better Self and Founder—Lagocians Expats Social (LES), the first Meetup group I found in Nigeria was about LES.  I met Jennifer recently at an exclusive red carpet event we happened to be in together.  Great minds thinks alike it seems as we were lost in conversation, talking about our great country, the need for more of us to bring our talents back home. She has single handedly created a platform that brings foreigners and locals together, big companies are courting her, some already on her roster, now that's a powerhouse! The ever so curious me want to know everything, so I ask her.

Why LES?
I started the LAGOCIANS EXPATS SOCIAL as I moved to work in Lagos. Given that I have expatriation experience and history and a multicultural background. I have lived and worked in different continents around the world. Each place I lived I found blogs and or forums that enabled foreigners to interact with one another or forums that gave foreigners useful tips about a country which was quite interesting, I discovered similar things when I arrived to Lagos. However during all my years of traveling I never saw a forum, blog or platform that physically brought the expatriates/Foreigners and the locals together. Which means many expatriates would live in a foreign country for years and never get really to interact with the locals therefore would miss out on some amazing experiences. 
Upon my arrival to Lagos I created LAGOCIANS EXPATS SOCIAL (LES), a platform and a social network where expatriates in Lagos/Nigeria and substantial and classy Nigerians can come together and meet new people, interact with one another, have fun, share and enjoy various interesting activities, fabulous parties and fun events. LAGOCIANS EXPATS SOCIAL (LES) is also a great networking opportunity for professionals and entrepreneurs to come together and meet new people, whether to Improve their social lives or to network and communicate their businesses and/or brands.
LAGOCIANS EXPATS SOCIAL launch party took place at the Oriental Hotel VI Lagos on Dec 6th 2014. Since our launch we organized and have hosted some events and have had interesting turn up of members, media attention and sponsors, L'OREAL West Africa was one our sponsors. LES is indeed fast growing in its own right.  
We subsequently organize tasteful events and fun activities, to welcome new members and introduce them to already existing members. Our famous Red Carpet Events, Private Beach parties, Barbecue parties, Salsa nights, Game nights, and Jogging sessions, are to mention just a few of activities available on LES platform. I have discovered that the expatiates enjoy interacting with Nigerians and Nigerians welcome foreigners gracefully
Our mission to is grow into one of the largest platforms in Nigeria, with thousands of active members, a go-to platform that provides great tips and guidance, creates fun actives and events, and celebrates multiculture. Visit http://www.meetup.com/LAGOCIANS-EXPAT-SOCIAL-Meetup and join us! Don't miss out there is something for everyone.
The printed copies of my books are sold in major book stores in Lagos such as, the HUBS book store located in the PALMS MALL/SHOPRITE at Lekki, Terraculture book store in Victoria Island etc. They are also sold in Paris, France. The eBook version of my book is sold on Amazon.com, Amazon.uk, Amazon.fr etc. You could just type in the title of my book “6 EFFECTIVE STEPS TO YOUR BETTER SELF” on a Google browser to lead you to the lists of the online platforms where the eBook version are sold.
Well you read it here, head on to the link and get the latest, maybe next time you're in Lagos, check it out. We need a lot more of this back home. Don't forget to get a copy of Jennifer's book.


Msadaku.

Destined to Fail but Ordained to Glory—book signing with MarSha Andrus

I had a great privilege of watching the birth of someone's baby.

Destined to Fail but Ordained to Glory is a compelling story about early detachment, broken trust and stolen innocence; unfolds the struggles and growing pains of a young girl forced to grow up too fast. When you find yourself alone in a jungle with ravening wolves lurking in the bushes, where do you turn? The world can be cruel, cold and dark for a young girl who finds herself alone, looking for comfort and love in all the wrong places. In a struggle to bond and find love, they seem fleeting as she struggles even more, she finds herself involved with people with their own special interests. When one is forced to grow up too fast, that's just what one does, but not without bumps on the road. This book will take you on one woman's journey to true love, lasting friendships and spiritual redemption.

Zoe: The Book Launch

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of working with one of my fast becoming favorite book authors - Nkem Denchukwu.  This woman's hard at work.  She's been on a country wide tour promoting Gem of the Rainforest.  In between, she managed to pen down a children's book: Zoe—the first in a series to come (available here).  All of this on the heels of a full length novel titled Tribal Echoes released last year (available here).  All in all, she's managed to pull all that off as a single mother of four (phew! Now that's a woman after my own heart!).  I met up with her at her home as she's readies for anticipated guests of the book launch.  Now I've never been to any book launch that catered to the guests with gourmet ethinic foods to salivate and warm the palate as you toured her warm and inviting home and checked out her latest effort.
