About Wale

A bit of Info about me:
I would also like to give you some information about me. I am a recent marketing graduate. I love breaking the rules and challenging the status quo, as I believe every individual should always try to break the boundaries as it's all about progression.

An example of a time in my life when I displayed this was when I persuaded ZEO to let me help out to promote ZEO with the aim of capturing the youth market in the UK.

Me and my friends created a company whilst at university called Heke Promotions which solved the problem which was that they were no good events for students in West London so we created and hosted events around the West London area.

I also created a company called Clever Cash which solved the problem of used textbooks being left at home. At Clever Cash we buy and sell used textbooks from University of West London students.

In High School Me and my friend were sick of school dinners being tasteless and not fresh so we created a business where my friend cooked fresh cookies daily and then I sold them to students which generated us £130 each week not bad for a pair of 15 year old students.

My Favourite quotes are
“Marketing is a race without a finishing line” Philip Kotler
“I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man!” Shawn Carter (Jay Z)
"Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.” Pablo Picasso
"Motivation for me was them telling me what I could not be." - Pharrell Williams
