Tope Phillips Aikhuemelo has over 30 years experience which spans Banking, Journalism, Sales, Corporate & Governmental affairs, Brands Management & HR.

TP (as he is fondly called) is a pragmatic business leader with a flair for working and winning through teams. My major achievements have come through strategic thinking, strong interpersonal and coaching skills, holding self and others accountable.

He has had international exposure working as a regional lead spanning two continents (looking after over 18 countries) in Africa, Middle East and Turkey.

His key areas of expertise include leading Business Transformation and culture change. Talent management, Employee Engagement and Employer branding sit in his comfort zone. Recently, he was a member of the Nigerian Employers Delegation at the ILO conference that worked on the Violence in the workplace.

His appetite for growing people is huge so he spends time volunteering with young people to help them achieve their life goals.
