Stratcomm Africa welcomed fifty Women in PR for a chat with its Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Esther A.N. Cobbah, on the topic of starting a career in PR and sustaining such a career.
Ms. Cobbah shared her journey in PR and how she started the company that is now celebrating 25 years since its foundation. A stimulating conversation then ensued among the participants.
For Ms. Esther Cobbah, the important elements on her journey have been: a passion for the profession; self-motivation, hard work, and an open heart for God to work through for His glory and for the benefit of mankind.
Ms. Cobbah summed up her outlook in the words of King David in Psalm 78: “Success in our profession requires working with integrity of heart and skill of hand,” she emphasised.
Ms. Gillian Baaba Heathcote, a General Manager at Stratcomm Africa who welcomed the group, indicated that Stratcomm Africa remains committed to developing willing people, particularly women. She encouraged the young women professionals to develop their skills and have a positive attitude toward their professional development.
The Founder of Women in PR, Ms. Faith Senam, was thankful to Stratcomm Africa for sharing with participants. “We are humbled to have an opportunity to listen to Ms. Cobbah. She is an inspiration to many young PR professionals, and we believe this event in which she shares her over-three decades of professional experience in communication – as well as her 25-year journey of entrepreneurship in this industry – with us women in PR Ghana is timely,” Ms. Senam noted.
The participants indicated that they were inspired by the wealth of experience and knowledge shared, including challenges and opportunities, and are determined to achieve even greater heights as women in PR.
