Can you tell us a little about yourself and 360 Nobs Group as a brand?
My name is Noble Chibuzor Igwe; my good friends call me “Nobs”. I’m from Umuomaku in Orumba South Local government of Anambra State but was born and brought up in Aba, Abia State. I’m a graduate of Urban & Regional Planning from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka with a Certificate in Entrepreneurship Management from the prestigious Pan Africa University.
It’s a bit difficult talking about me but a few things stand out – I can’t have my bath with cold water, I don’t drink hot tea and I never miss an opportunity to speak Igbo.
The 360 Group is t he company that I work for and they deal in diverse businesses. The 360Nobs Group comprises of 360Nobs Limited, owners of 360nobs.com, 360PR, 360Management, 360Productions, SLU…shh, and 360 Delivery Limited.

How did you get started in Business and what did it take for you to get to where 360 Nobs Group is today?
I’m one of those people for whom their hobbies translated into a business at the end of the day.
I’ve always loved events and while in paid employment I was flirting with event promotion and production on the side. Working as the Events and Sponsorship Coordinator for then; Virgin Nigeria, I was in contact with a lot of Nigerian celebrities and somehow the business relationship became a bit more personal and after I left Virgin, I started working as PR Officer for Mo Hits and then from Mo Hits to working with M.I. and from working with MI.. to working with Banky W.
What were you doing before 360 Nobs Group kicked off?
I started my working career as a Fine Arts teacher in Gombe High School, Gombe during my service year then moved to Lagos in 2005 to work as a Call Centre Advisor for Virgin Nigeria and later moved to the Marketing department.
I left Virgin Nigeria in 2008 to join advertising powerhouse 141Worldwide and that was where I stopped my 9-5 career to start this round-the-clock career.
Looking back, I would say I had an interesting career with and the places that I worked helped shaped that me into this me.
Did you know you were going to be an Entrepreneur all along or did it happen by chance?
I knew someday, I was going to work for myself but I didn’t know the right time but I knew that the type of money and lifestyle that I wanted to have wasn’t going to come from a 9-5.
My dad is a big-time entrepreneur and I knew I was definitely going to become one. I’m my father’s son.
What keeps you and the 360 Nobs Group team motivated?
We created a brand that we all love and we spend most of our time promoting and protecting it.
We constantly make every member of the team think-live- breathe 360Nobs. For me, knowing that I have a lot of people looking up to me, I do everything possible to make sure that we provide them with the resources to take care of themselves and their families.
What do you think are the most important personal skills someone must have to be successful in business?
While I wouldn’t sit back and claim the status of a successful businessman, I think you need consistency and determination to forge forward.

What are the obstacles you encountered in your business journey and how did you overcome them?
Every business encounters challenges from staffing issues to government policies but there’s one thing I live by, “Put your worries in the hands of God & go home to play Ludo”.
There are no business or personal problems bigger than God.
How would you describe your leadership style?
I lead by being a follower and the Chief Marketing Officer. My colleagues all refer to me as “Nobs” and I listen to them on every issue relating to work and my personal life.
