Terser Joseph Adamu, the Chief Operating Officer of Africa Youth Awards, holds a Natural Science degree from John Moores University in Liverpool.
Terser has demonstrated a strong record of success throughout his professional career. This is clear from his early years working in the music industry as a DJ, and rapidly rising through the ranks to become a widely recognised and regarded event promoter. During this period, Terser and his team played a pivotal role in bringing the 2008 MTV European Music Awards to his home city of Liverpool.
As a socially aware and responsible individual, Terser turned his hand from the music industry to welfare industry. During this period he worked on major European Union contracts for the Department of Works and Pensions. He was appointed as Lead for Supply Chain and Partnership for Black and Minority Ethnic group (BME) in the North-West of England. His passion and commitment to quality and community led to him sitting on the board for numerous organisations.
His growing reputation allowed him to influence BME welfare and employment policies within DWP and Liverpool City Council.
As a progressive and dynamic thinker, Terser moved on from the welfare industry to the aerospace industry, and worked for Airbus who are the world’s largest aeroplane manufacturers. His role was crucial in mapping out the supply chain function for the XWB A350 aircraft new product introduction, which is recognized globally as one of the biggest engineering/manufacturing projects in recent years.
It’s safe to say that Terser has had a colourful professional career. Especially if you consider that during this period he has also engaged in entrepreneurial activities such as his award winning events and media company Speakerbox, his highly regarded business blog MyNaijaNaira.com, and investments in African agriculture and technology.
His passion for all things business and Africa is infectious. These qualities are a perfect match for the Africa Youth Awards, and will definitely help drive the Africa Youth Awards mission of “celebrating the youth of Africa”.
