OD Facebook Live with Chidi Nwaogu on “How to Make Winning Applications and Pitch Decks”
Opportunity Desk (OD) is very delighted to have Chidi Nwaogu accept to host a Facebook Live session with us. No doubt, drafting applications and pitch decks can be a daunting task, although not impossible. Answering the questions can be hard, pitching before investors can even be harder, let alone making video applications. This Saturday, August 10, at 5 pm GMT, we will host our fifth #ODLive with Chidi on the topics “How to Make Winning Applications (and Pitch Decks)”.
The #ODLive series is part of our efforts to empower our users with the right knowledge and tips they need to grow and succeed in their businesses, projects, and applications for global opportunities.
