|Audrey Joe-ezigbo: How To Build An Oil Empire by MrSlimmz: 9:10am On Jan 15, 2019|
Audrey Joe-Ezigbo is the co-founder, with her husband, of Falcon Corporation Limited, a wholly indigenous oil and gas outfit that offers a diverse portfolio of services that cut across engineering, procurement, construction and natural gas distribution, as well as in the real estate sector. She spoke with Guardian Woman about her challenges and steadfastness. Excerpts:
Who is Audrey Joe-Ezigbo? Tell us about yourself.
I am first and foremost God’s daughter, committed to doing my excellent best by His grace to deliver to the world every assignment and purpose for which He put me on this earth. My greatest aspiration is to die empty; empty of every gift, talent and ability God blessed and resourced me with, so I can fulfil His mandate to be a blessing in the lives of others. I have over 22 years’ entrepreneurial experience, with core competencies in business strategy; finance and investment management; commercial strategy; business development and resource management among others.
I am a woman who is an encourager by nature and so everything I do feeds into my personal mission statement which is ‘To add value to the lives of everyone I meet in a tangible and sustainable manner’. I have a personal commitment to ensuring that people’s lives must necessarily be impacted positively because they had an encounter with me in person, through my work, or through my writing and speaking. For these reasons, I am a woman for whom purpose, intentionality and focus undergird my every moment. I am wife to an amazing man with whom I have had the joy of sharing over two decades of my life – at home and at work, and I am a mother to four absolutely fabulous children whose destinies I have been given the privilege to mould for the season of my life. I am a woman who understands that all things work together for my God because my life is in God’s hands, and His plans for me are good.
You started out in the oil and gas industry with no background experience in the sector, were you not scared charting a course on unfamiliar waters?
