Mrs. Ifedayo Janet Andrew-Ogunbayo
Mrs. Ifedayo Andrew-Ogunbayo is our CEO and Lead Travel Consultant is a seasoned Travel Expert who has a huge international exposure having travelled to over 30 destinations around Africa, Europe, Americas and Asia with sights set on visiting at least 100 countries before retirement however, her favourite destination remains Dubai, no wonder she is called MAMA DUBAI among her colleagues in the industry due to the way she sells Dubai differently as a result of her total knowledge of Dubai as a destination.
She trained as an Estate Surveyor and Valuer from Federal University of Technology, Minna Niger State Nigeria in 2008 and worked as a Property and Facility Manager with Dangote Nigeria Limited up until she resigned in 2012 to face her first love; selling tourism locally and internationally.
Since then, she has gone on to be a force to reckon with in the Nigerian Travel industry with awards and accolades including various recognitions from several tourism boards around the world and in 2016, she was recognized as one of the top 100 Travel Personalities in Africa by Africa Travel Magazine, the organizers of Akwabba Travel Trade show in Africa and Europe.
She is an active member of National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies (NANTA), a body responsible for looking out for the welfare and professionalism of the genuinely registered travel advisors in Nigeria that at a time in the past, she was nicknamed UNOFFICIAL EXCO because of the way she was involved serving as a member of the Ethics and Disciplinary Committee in the 2018/2020 year.
She is passionate in selling affordable vacation making sure that with planned savings, travel abroad for vacation is achievable by all which gave rise to the FIDOL PIGGY BANK product where clients save towards their future trips even when the eventual cost is unknown. That has helped to achieve the dream of a lot.
In order to demystify the selling of travel packages, she also conceived a training arm of Fidol Trips known as FIDOL TOURISM ACADEMY where colleagues, old and young, are trained on how to become seasoned travel consultants rather than remain ticketing agents like most of them are. The accepatce level is very high going by the testimonies of those that have signed up in the past. Here tips to being an all-rounder are shared and the participants earn their certificates and they are also mentored freely over 1 month post-completion of their training which is available online and offline.
