What is Dunamis Events up to lately?
At Dunamis we are trying to be better than what we were. We try our best not to compete with anybody but we put in all our best in what we do.
What is the competition like?
I want to believe we are in a class of our own,because this race is a personal thing. We are not saying that we are oblivious of what is happening around us. No, but at the same time we are not looking at what Mr.A is doing or what Mr.B is doing. We did something yesterday, we want it to be better. Healthy competition is very good.
It’s just like anything that has gained acceptance all over the world. Like we have so many hospitals, we have so many churches. People have the means of knowing who is in it passionately and who is in it for the money. Aside that, you have to carve a niche for yourself, by making your work standout. You let your customers know that if they give you work, they can go to sleep and be rest assured that their work will be properly done. So when you have a signature like that and you have brand loyalty people would still use your services irrespective of how many legions of events planners are out there.
How old is Dunamis now?
Dunamis was twelve, August 12th last year to the glory of God.
