“The Power Brunch marks a significant milestone in Marie Claire Nigeria’s journey” — Chidera Muoka

Dear Marie Claire Women,

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to each of you for gracing us with your presence at our launch event and inaugural Power Brunch. Your engagement and enthusiasm filled the room with an energy that still resonates deeply within me. As I reflect on my debut as a host for the Power Brunch, I am overwhelmed by the warmth and positive feedback we received from our esteemed guests.
The theme of the event, “Introducing The Marie Claire Woman,” guided us on a journey of resilience, courage, and representation. From the soul-stirring performances by Ms WanaWana to the heartfelt discussions in our panel sessions, every moment celebrated the essence of womanhood.

Our panel discussions, led by remarkable women such as Lucy of Weizdhurm Franklyn, Dupe Talabi, Isioma Osaje, Titilope Adesanya, Bukky George Taylor, and Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi, were the cornerstone of the event. Their willingness to share strategic insights and vulnerabilities created a safe space for learning and growth.

I must also express my gratitude to Lady Maiden Alex-Ibru, Chairman and Publisher of Guardian Nigeria, whose presence and wisdom added immense value to our gathering. Her words underscored the importance of resilience, innovation, and community in the journey of every woman.

Hosting the Power Brunch marks a significant milestone in Marie Claire Nigeria’s journey. It reaffirms our commitment to empowering women by providing platforms for education, entertainment, and inspiration. Through thought-provoking discussions and networking opportunities, we aim to challenge norms and foster a community of empowered women who dare to defy limitations.

The unwavering support of our partners, ALARA LAGOS, made our event possible. Their dedication to empowering women is truly commendable. I extend my gratitude to the AMSTEL MALTA team for their tireless efforts in championing women across diverse industries. Similarly, the Pernod Ricard team’s dedication to creating a transcendent experience for our guests did not go unnoticed.

A special mention goes to our beauty sponsors, BEAUTY BY AD and KINKY APOTHECARY, for curating an unforgettable experience for every woman present.

To our parent companies, THE GUARDIAN NIGERIA and Marie Claire International, I express my deepest appreciation for paving the way for women’s advancement and for providing Marie Claire Nigeria with a platform to thrive.

Lastly, to the dedicated team at Marie Claire Nigeria, your unwavering commitment to our mission is truly commendable. Our journey together is and will always be for women, for power.
With warm regards,

Chidera Muoka
