These achievements give credence to the selection and the jury decision making process at Xodus Communications, the leading organizers of Industry Awards in Ghana. The awarding board under the chairmanship of Professor David Atta Peters remain resolute in celebrating young leaders who have gone ahead of the age.
The Forty under 40 Awards, an initiative from Xodus Communications Limited seeks to identify, honour and celebrate a cross-section of the nation’s most influential and accomplished young business leaders under the age forty from a wide range of industries we cover, who are committed to business growth, professional excellence and community service and have risen up the ranks of their companies or industries at a relatively young age as result of this.
The awards, among others, is aimed at recognizing and celebrating 40 emerging leaders under the age of 40 who demonstrate or impact personally and/ or professionally through their exceptional leadership; and finally encourage our upcoming youth that excellence and success can be achieved at a very tender age.
According to the Events Director, Richard Abbey Jnr, putting the spotlight on these young achievers would not only celebrate them but also build a strong platform for them by giving a voice and opportunities to the next generation of industry pacesetters whiles building a positive attitude in our youth to strive for excellence at a tender age.
“We are Xodus believe that it is vital to celebrate achievers when are alive rather than decorating caskets and funeral grounds in honour of the dead and gone.”
