From the Keynote presentation, panel sessions and fireside chat, #LagosDigitalSummit
2022 was an impactful and exciting experience for both online and on-site attendees.

One of the attendees, Ade’ Ogunyale shared on LinkedIn: “The first time I heard about
Lagos Digital Summit was in 2019 and I made plans to attend with Rinu, Chuckz, Olamide
Omoregha and many others. However, I couldn’t attend it back then……. Long story short I
eventually got to the venue of the event around past two – I missed a lot, to be honest. But I am glad I got to watch Seun Adeola speak, I got the opportunity to meet Joshua Folayemi
Esq., I even saw Adewale Adetona for the first time. Plus I got the opportunity to connect
with my old friends Olamide Omoregha, Chuckz while also meeting Temi, Danzor and
Prince Tosin. At the end of the day, I had fun and learnt a bunch of new stuff, I’m glad I
broke the jinx and I’m looking forward to the next edition of LDS. #LagosDigitalSummit.
