The summit held at the Lagos centre of the organization.

Themed ‘Be Smart’, the summit attracted over 2, 000 students as well as various stakeholders including; Associate Professor, Department of Accounting and Finance, Lagos State University, Dr Kehinde James, Managing Director ValuePlus International, Mr Tolulope Ahmed, Director of Sales, Envirofit International, Mr Biodun Olaore, Managing Director Drug Consult Pharmacy, Charles Oyeniyi, Managing Partner, EquiTrust Advocates and Solicitors, Barrister Kayode Aderemi , President Chrisgate International, Mr Christopher Alabi and other dignitaries.
Speaking at the summit, President Chrisgate International, Mr. Christopher Alabi disclosed that, the summit which started ten years ago is part of the organization’s corporate social responsibility plan to give back to the community and a way of encouraging hard work and diligence in the quest to achieve success. It is also a way to impact our society positively.
Mr. Alabi added that, '"We understand the importance of education to national development, and also identify the setback caused by examination malpractice and how it has affected the crop of professionals in Nigeria. This is why we have over the years brought together over 2000 students preparing for UTME to enlighten them on the need to study hard to pass their examinations without seeking for any help as this will form the foundation for their chosen career”.
Barrister Kayode Aderemi in his presentation titled ‘Success is your birthright’, identified various underlying principles for success which when applied properly will give students a push from being an average learner to an excellent student. He encouraged the participants to have their hands on the set goals which must come from hard work and self-motivation.
Dr Kehinde James who spoke on ‘Education System in Nigeria, Rising or Falling’, challenged the government and education stakeholders to brace up their game to achieve the desired development in the educational system in Nigeria.

Biodun Olaore in his submission on ‘Career with Purpose’, applauded Chrisgate motivational network for the huge investment the company is contributing to education in Nigeria. He called on other organisations to emulate the gesture to students at this level as he enjoined the students to be hard working and focused. He further enjoined them to neglect malpractices as they prepare for the future.
