Christine Osazuwa

Digital Marketer, Data Analyst & Front-End Web Developer

I believe that not much on Earth rivals the experience of live music. I believe that marketing should always be used for good. I believe data and numbers are not a substitute for a good story & passion (but, you better have some damn good numbers to back it up). I believe in investing in your employees as much as your customers. I believe that you should never stop learning and never stop listening. I believe that business can be an art and art can be a business. I believe in using money for experiences rather than things. I believe in the power of music, creativity and art. I believe that innovative, interdisciplinary thinking can change the world.
