Stand.Out.And.Reign! is the reborn and reloaded version of Thinkers’ Palace (TP), a youth-focused personal development initiative founded by ‘Femi Asu in 2003. He got the inspiration of a new name on February 10, 2012 – on his way home – after days of serious mind mapping.
It is an initiative geared towards igniting the minds of young people, inspiring and empowering them to become real standouts in the society. It was born out of the need to stimulate the drive for personal development in the Nigerian youth.
To raise REAL STANDOUTS: people who are shining examples of excellence in their chosen field, making society better by their exploits.
To stimulate and sustain the drive for continuous self-improvement in the Nigerian youth by inspiring, informing and igniting their minds through the power of the written words, and by creating and opening up opportunities for self-development such as seminars, conferences, workshops, scholarships, fora, etc.
