AVP of Marketing and Recruitment, Julius Ayuk Tabe, was the guest speaker for the occasion. Delivering his talk, entitled The Power of Three, Mr. Ayuk Tabe identified three kinds of people: the movers and shakers, those who discuss what happens, and those who wonder why things happen, encouraging the graduates to strive to be actively involved in the society.
