Sozo strategy boot camp was what I needed to fine-tune my goals. I found the camp very enlightening, with simple learner friendly approaches. - Obafemi Felicia Funke. ED, TEGRI, Abuja. From just a mental picture, I now have a viable and sustainable model. - Olumide Adaramoye, Ibadan. The mode of delivery is a system I will adopt, because of its effectiveness.
