“I am always on the road and I need to keep up with my team. That is why Slack is one of my most used apps. It makes virtually keeping up with work with my team possible. I also use Evernote to take note of ideas, my to-do list, important messages and meetings.”
Adewale Yusuf, Founder and CEO Techpoint.ng
“The mobile apps I use for my business are Canva and Trello. I use Canva to design images that I use for my social media networks to convey our brand message and also use Trello to organise and plan our brand projects, which makes my work easy to implement.”

“Communications is a big part of what I do and love. In this field, great, captivating and relatable content is key in driving engagements and satisfying our clients. The 21st century is one that could be called the visual century because we relate better with what we see. I have been able to keep up with the pace because consistently, I ensure that I put up quality and engaging content. Some apps have been able to help me, I would call them my power apps and they are Hypetype, Legend and Watermark. I have been using them for a while now to create captivating content and engaging visuals.”

“Advertising is a multi-facet communication language for brands. In smoothly running our clients’ campaigns and helping them achieve their goals, my team and I rely on applications like Slack, WhatsApp and Gmail (to mention a few) for communication and ease of campaign tracking. With these apps, I can stay on top of events as they unfold.”
