MY CORE VALUES

STRENGTH & PERSEVERANCE

In my relatively few years on earth, by God’s special benevolence, I have developed strength and learned perseverance through experiences. When I battled with health issues in the 1980’s, my father, Chief Davis O. Ihentuge would always tell me, “PAUL MUST PREACH IN ROME.” In strength, I persevered while also leaning on the words of Dale Carnegie that, ‘’Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.’’

VIGOR & FORESIGHT

Understanding current and future trends is a panacea to an ideal strategic positioning with all tenacity. Just as Stephen R. Covey said in this book, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, I count it extremely worthwhile to always ‘’begin with the end in mind’’.

INTEGRITY & TRUST

My parents, through their life, made me understand at an early age that by taking a stand out of conviction and remaining true to the convictions would always define an individual. By following their examples and sometimes due to youthful exuberance going out of line thereby bearing some unpalatable consequences, I learned that pleasure, profit and persuasion should rather be determined by informed conviction and not the other way. Benjamin Franklin even admonished us to,”Let no pleasure tempt thee, no profit allure thee, no persuasion move thee, to do anything which thou knowest to be evil; so shalt thou always live jollity; for a good conscience is a continual Christmas”.

ESSENCE & VALUE

Why am I still here? This is the most pertinent question in my heart which ultimately molds my disposition to life. The true essence of man is purpose and life after here on earth. We are missionaries here on earth.  As pointed out by Steve Jobs to 2005 Stanford University graduates, “ death is very likely the single best invention of life.” Having been so richly blessed, the most eminent value is to project the glory of Christ.

Christ in me, the hope of glory. 
Colossians 1:27

I learn by doing, grow by failing and really succeed by serving others!

MY PATH

Okwukwe Davis Ihentuge holds a Doctor of Optometry degree from Abia State University. He has practised optometry for more than a decade. In his more than a decade as a primary eye care practitioner has managed an eye clinic, set up and supervised a startup eye clinic.

Okwukwe has always had a strong passion for business management. He originally intended to study along this line in the university but was discouraged due to a health condition, However, Okwukwe has over time done some certificate courses in Strategic business management specialisation and Digital Marketing specialisation through the Coursera online platform of Illinois University among several others.

The world has gone digital and digital transformation especially towards the mobile platform, continues to be the top priority of creative and innovative ventures. Nigeria, Okwukwe’s great country, still remains the world’s most mobilized country with a traffic of 81%-TwinpineIn Saudi Arabia, where Okwukwe practices optometry, most digital statistics are fuelled by the millennials. Digital transformation will continue to be influenced by the young.

Having seen optometric start-up clinics spring up and fail in Nigeria, and also seen mission-driven colleagues and even relatives start a business without much-specialized planning and strategy, Okwukwe decided to commit himself to digital strategy and planning by becoming a certified professional in Digital Strategy and Planning, through the Digital Marketing Institute, Ireland- an industry leader in this field.

Okwukwe, with more than 14 years experience as an optometrist,  great enthusiasm for ideal business management, passion for design and strategy has defined his commitment to serve through design and strategy. His focus is to through collaborations help the Nigerian optometric practitioner with a clear vision, small business owner with a compelling mission and young professional with unique value to communicate ideas most effectively through Design and Strategy. He believes that success is planned and executed through a deliberate and purposeful design and strategy in building the You brand. All these and more led Okwukwe to establish a StarRose Design Solutions, an online digital creative agency focused on helping optometric setups, small business startups and young professionals with design and strategy.

Okwukwe is a husband to a Honeypie- Nwamaka. Together, Okwukwe and Nwamaka have a super son- Kosisochukwu and two angelic daughters- Kamsiriochukwu and Kaodirichukwu. Together, they are a family built and continues to grow on Christian ideals.

Okwukwe has so much passion and hunger for an ideal political development in Nigeria. He believes this will enable his dear country, Nigeria, take its prideful place among the comity of nations.
