“Don’t follow the crowd. Follow your special unique path and you’ll succeed.”
Meet Dr. Sam Adeyemi – an expert engineer turned global leader. Dr. Sam’s story begins in Nigeria, where he was born into a family of builders. With a legacy of construction in his blood, he naturally gravitated towards civil engineering.
