ABEOKUTA – The Ogun state Capital, Abeokuta is set for the first ever Emotional Intelligence Seminar in the state tagged “Abeokuta EQ Hangout”.
The event which is packaged by Relationship Pendulum Africa, an organization which has it tentacles across Africa, is set to hold on 14th of December this year at Goldzek Gardens and Bars located at Ibara Housing Estate.
Speaking to newsmen in Abeokuta, the Brain Behind the event, Micheal Jacob who is a Globally Certified EQ Professional revealed that the seminar is meant to expose indigenes of Abeokuta and Ogun state at large to the competences of emotional intelligence.
While speaking on the need for Emotional intelligence, He said, “We are always in an emotion even when we try to be emotionless.
“We may not show an emotion, but the fact that our bodies secrete hormones and we are interpreting the world around us causes us to perceive the world, assess it and experience a sensation –feel an emotion.
“Emotions affect our health, our relationships and our financial well-being. How we respond to other people and events in our lives often determines how people respond to us.
“The course of our lives often depends on our level of emotional intelligence (EQ).
“So after my last international Certification Course, I saw a need to give back to my immediate environment of which Abeokuta seems to be closer, and I intend to give the same quality of exposure I had during my last training to people who would have the privilege to be part of this first ever EQ event in the state” He said
Micheal further added that, the choice of location is deliberate as requirements of the course need a nature inclined and serene environment.
“We really want to thank Goldzek for partnering with us on this about to make history event” He added
