In support of Sterling Bank’s exciting One Woman value proposition, a select number of Nigerian women were taught to take action, make positive choices about their own lives and do positive things for others at the Sheraton Hotel in Lagos.

These and many more positive outcomes were the bank’s expectations from the programme entitled, “Sexually Confident Woman”. The theme of the one-day programme organised by Tope Mark-Odigie was “Self-Love”.

A-list speakers and panellists at the programme included Mrs. Ifeyinwa Ighodalo, CEO, Design Options, Mrs. Mojisola Bakara, General Manager, Corporate Banking, Sterling Bank, Ms. Kate Henshaw, Nollywood Actor and Izefua Ehi-Williams, a prominent life coach. Others were Dr. Maymunah Kadiri, a clinical psychologist, Barrister Orbby Agwuncha, a sexologist and Beecee Ugboh, a gospel hip-hop artiste.


The Sterling MSME Academy was established three years ago to equip aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs with the skills required to build sustainable businesses. Mrs. Daniel Olajumoke, Managing Director of Real Mercy International Limited, spoke with newsmen in Ilorin after the 3-day MSME Academy workshop in the state. She commended Sterling Bank’s unwavering support to small and medium enterprises.

We hope Mothering Sunday 2017 was an amazing day for your Mum! She deserves all the love and affection you can give for her many sacrifices.

This weekend, Sterling Bank helped to celebrate hundreds of wonderful mums with the inspiring #MySterlingMum campaign. We asked fans to tweet photos of their mums along with heartwarming captions of how amazing they are.

And tweet they did. In fact, they went all out with amazing stories of triumph and memorable childhood moments, courtesy of their Queen Bees. A huge thank you to everyone who participated and we wish you all the best in our contest!
