Emmanuel Ada Ogejuma is a pharmacist and award-winning sales manager.

"My weakness is my insatiable drive for success."

- Emmanuel Ada Ogejuma, regional manager GlaxoSmithKline

He is responsible for the sales of HIV drugs and vaccines in Nigeria for pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) - a key corporate sponsor of the leadership project.

But Emmanuel is not just well-known at GSK for his own success; he is also seen to help team members develop in their careers.

His smooth talking and laid back personality will be tested, so can he keep a cool head and bring his skills to bear on this leadership mission?
