Ms. Ifueko M. Omoigui is the Chief Responsibility Officer and Founder of ReStraL Consulting where she works with a team of excellent professionals to provide in-depth solutions to our various clients.
Ms. Omoigui has distinguished herself in all that she has chosen to do from her primary school days to this date. A winner of different prizes through primary and secondary school, her very distinguished academic record culminated in her graduating from the University of Lagos in 1983 (where she was a Gulf Oil, now Chevron, scholar) with a first class degree in accounting, the best graduating student in the faculty and valedictorian of the graduating class. She passed her professional accounting exams (ICAN) as a prizewinner in 1984 and obtained a Master of Science degree in Management Science from the Imperial College, University of London as a Commonwealth scholar in 1986.
Ms. Omogui’s professional career commenced very briefly with the firm of Akintola Williams & Co. in 1983, proceeding to spend her formative years – about 12 years – with the firms of Arthur Andersen (now Andersen) and Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) – working at various times in the Audit, Tax and Management Consulting divisions, proffering management and business solutions and supporting the growth and development of organizations in a variety of sectors. Ms. Omojui was part of the group that started the management consulting practice of Arthur Andersen Worldwide organization in Nigeria, in 1986. Ms. Omoigui left the services of Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) in 1996 as a national partner and head of the firm’s very successful strategy practice to establish ReStraL Consulting.
The development of the Nigerian Nation has been a major focus of Ms. Omoigui’s attention over the years. This has influenced her choice of career as a Management Consultant as well as the creation of a successful but short lived network television programme (when she was about 25 years of age) – Another Step. The ReStraL Vision to be “an African perspective of global excellence, best practices and value creation, continuously seeking and teaching people and organizations the better way, enriching lives for the continuous improvement of society” is a continuation of this dream – to be a driver and champion of Nigeria’s success and leadership in the global community. Ms. Omoigui gets deeply involved in ensuring that ReStraL provides the desired quality of service that enables her clientele to lead in chosen markets.
ReStraL, though just four+ years old, is growing in reputation as a company synonymous with excellent service delivery in both the private and public sectors. ReStraL, in addition to its own products, also manages the Nigerian franchise of the Franklin Covey Company USA (Franklin Covey is the world’s leading leadership development organization with offerings such as “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”).
Ms. Omoigui has written and co-written several articles aimed at deepening understanding of what it takes to truly drive effective strategy at the micro and macro levels. She has also made local and international presentations on “leadership,” “linking internal values to external actions,” as part of her quest to ensure that organizations truly live the values that they profess, both within their organizations and externally, impacting their environments in so doing. One of the strategic research activities being driven by Ms. Omoigui in the firm today is one centered on deepening one’s understanding of the Nigerian socio-cultural environment as part of the firm’s contribution to promoting effective communication, teamwork and cohesive behaviors amongst a diverse group of people.
Ms. Omoigui is an active member of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group and is part of the group setting up the National Vision Foundation, the private sector implementation vehicle for the nation’s Vision 2010 report, which she was actively involved in developing in 1996-97.
She is the recipient of numerous awards, including:
The World Economic Forum “Global Leaders for Tomorrow” award, for the period 2000 to 2006. This award is for individuals who are under the age of 41 who hold positions of considerable power, influence and responsibility, and who are ‘global’ in terms of their accomplishments and potential.
