Tired of reading, then listen.

Noble Igwe born 10 February, 1982 is a Nigerian blogger, and the founder and Chief Executive Officer of 360 Group.

Igwe son of Sir Herbert & Lady Charity Igwe was born and raised in Aba, Abia State, where he finished his early schooling years at National High School Aba; St Augustine’s Anglican Seminary Nbawsi; Federal Government College Okigwe and graduated from University of Nigeria, Nsukka, where he studied in the department of Urban & Regional Planning. He also has a certificate in Entrepreneurship Management which he acquired from Pan Africa University.Igwe started his career (NYSC) as a Fine Arts teacher with the Gombe High School, Gombe State in 2004; then Virgin Nigeria Airways as a Customer Relationship Officer in 2005 but was officially moved to the Marketing department because of the way he handled the first ever Virgin Nigeria Anniversary.

While working at Virgin Nigeria, he wote Facebook notes, eventually his notes paid off and it attracted Bella Naija to request for his writeups.  These two events gave him the courage to take his interest in media and public relations more seriously. While Virgin Nigeria events provided him with the opportunity to meet with people who work in entertainment, which required PR, Bellanaija.com provided him with the platform to share his writing with a bigger population.

Equipped with knowledge and experiences from these diverse fields, he decided to go into advertising to learn the act of creative publicity/promotions. That lead him to work as a PR to Mo’hits (then the biggest music group in Nigeria), followed by SWE Bar and several others but moved to the Marketing Department in 2006. He left Virgin Nigeria Airways in 2008 for 141Worldwide, an advertising firm.

While working a paid job, that didn’t stop him from engaging in his hobbies especially blogging (one which was his favourite). Gradually, Igwe turned his hobby into a business, just like Linda Ikeji and some other successful bloggers in the country. He kept managing and juggling his job alongside event promotion and production.  He finally resigned from paid employment in April 2010 and concentrated on his establishment 360 Nobs Group.In 2009, Igwe started his own company, 360Nobs Limited.  In April 2010, he launched the website – 360nobs along with co-founders Oye Akideinde and Abimbola Soares.  They brought in their special skills.  They went on to setup more subsidiaries, 360PR, 360Events, 360Productions & 360nobs.com in 2010 and later moved them under the 360Nobs Group.
