It’s been over a month since the official launch event for the Future of Ghana deluxe edition publication. Since then the we (the Future of Ghana team) have not rested on our laurels. As Project Manager, Sandra Osei stated during the launch … Excellence is our Average! As such we have been working hard to make sure we deliver our remaining objectives for the year.
Moreover a central part of the Future of Ghana initiative are our top 30 pioneers themselves and whilst they will have the remainder of the year to bask in the glory of their selection. It is pertinent on our part that they are given the opportunity to further establish and better themselves. Our Director of Communications, Ben Anim-Antwi has galvanised the pioneers and created a networking group amongst themselves he has also been working hard to ensure they have access to events and courses that will benefit them as they pursue their respective endeavours.
All of our pioneers were given the unique opportunity through the Future of Ghana initiative to explore the potential of an MBA at the world renowned Yale University School of Management (SOM) by applying for the Pre MBA leadership program which will run this coming June 2015. We were able to get the original application deadline extended exclusively for our pioneers so as much of them as possible could get the chance to apply.
Eight of our Ghanaian based pioneers including Gordon Dogbe, David Asare Asiamah, Prince Adu Appiah and Donald Ward were selected to attend the annual QBP (Queens Birthday Party) at the British High Commission in Accra. They were able to network with diplomats, celebrity and business figures from both the UK & Ghana and were treated to a live performance by Ghanaian rising star Singer/Songwriter Wiyaala in the grounds of the High commissioners residence.
As Me Firi Ghana prepares to launch it’s exclusive members network shortly the above are just a snippet of the opportunities members can have access to upon subscription.
Lastly we would like to congratulate two of our 2015 top 30 U30 pioneers, Elorm Haligah and Kwam Korsah-Acquah aka Dum Doodles who have both been nominated for GUBA Awards in the Humanitarian and creative categories respectively. Winners will be revealed at the Awards ceremony on 4th July at Londons Hilton Metropole Hotel. You can obtain tickets here –
