Leading the MPN staff at the talk, Judith Mbonu, manager, Nigeria Operations Procurement introduced the presenters and explained the company's business operations in Nigeria. While Adedoyinsola Omotoye of the Operations Technical Geoscience (OTG) group provided an overview on Geology, career paths and subjects required to become a Geologist, Ernest Mkpasi, a senior engineer, broadly steered the students on Engineering and presented areas of opportunities for would-be engineers. Nneka Arowolo, procurement coordinator, followed up with a presentation on the Social Sciences, focusing on Law and Economics, and closed out with discussing her career path in MPN.

A Question and Answer session followed to test the students' understanding of the various topics and to provide an opportunity for the speakers to clarify areas the students were unclear about. At the same time, Mbonu presented three books to the top three students with outstanding performance at the Career Talk.

In attendance were students from each class (Year 7 to 11). The Proprietress of White Dove School highly commended MPN's support over the years in encouraging and educating White Dove students in respective career prospects.
