Tunji Olugbodi and wife in double celebration

May 12, (THEWILL)- A few weeks ago, advertising guru, Tunji Olugbodi, founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of Verdant Zeal Group, a multi-disciplinary marketing and communications outfit with two international branches in key locations across West Africa, clocked 60.

As exclusively reported by THEWILL, the day went by like any other. Rather than throw a lavish party, Olugbodi chose to have a quiet celebration with his staff serenading him for achieving such a milestone. Well, it turned out that Tunji did really want to celebrate, but he preferred to wait till his wife, Biyi also clocked 60. Their birthdays are just about a month apart. Last weekend was an opportunity for them to party hard. Venue was the Balmoral events centre, Sheraton Hotel, Lagos.

Some of the esteemed guests in attendance were former Minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi; Nkiru Olumide; former Minister of Information , Lai Mohammed, Segun Osoba; former publisher of Encomium tabloid magazine, Kunle Bakare; Dele Momodu, Chief Sunny Kuku; Bisi Olatilo; Sola Salako, Vanguard newspaper publisher, Sam Amuka, etc.

For almost two decades, Olugbodi has bestrode Nigeria‘s marketing and advertising terrain like a colossus, leading Verdant Zeal on a progressive trajectory, morphing from a multi-disciplinary organisation into a multi-contextual group with specialised brand marketing competence in Strategy, Content Conceptualisation and Development, Digital and Interactive Media, Public Relations and Custom Publishing, Activation and Experiential Marketing, Specialist Communication, Entertainment, and Intellectual Interventions.

A prolific and eloquent speaker and a professional par excellence, Olugbodi has graced several stages, speaking on customer service, marketing, leadership, strategic networking, public relations, risk and crisis management amongst others.

Personable, confident and enthusiastic, he has also handled and coordinated several high-profile campaigns and effectively managed account teams, supervised setting up and running of specialist operations across the whole spectrum of marketing and communications.

Olugbodi is also the convener of The Innovention Series, an annual thought leadership convo that hosts creative and conceptual thinkers to a roundtable discussion on how to apply the concept of innovation to development. The platform has featured many distinguished intellectuals, political leaders and captains of Industry.
