Business Leaders and CEOs of companies who are members of the Stanford Seed Transformation Network-Ghana (STN) will on 20th May 2021 mentor young leaders and entrepreneurs at a leadership workshop to strengthen and empower participants to effectively contribute to Ghana’s business growth and the economy.
The mentorship workshop is being organised by STN, a Network of Ghanaian Business Leaders and CEOs of companies who have completed the Stanford University Graduate School of Business’ Seed Transformation Programme. It will provide opportunities for young leaders and entrepreneurs to learn how to achieve business success from some of the country’s CEOs.
Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and leaders to engage the mentorship participants are Sammy Appenteng (Joissam Group); Romeo Bugyei (IT Consortium); Elikem Commey (Stanford Seed) Coby Asmah, (Type Company); Theresa Ayaode (Charterhouse); Linda Ampah (Cadling Fashions and KAD Manufacturing Limited); Karen E. Halm (Spekta Global Limited); and Barbara Obeng-Kamara (FC Group).
The Executives will speak to participants about ‘Entrepreneurship: What It Means and Needs’; ‘Do’s and don’ts of Entrepreneurship’; ‘Human resource needs of entrepreneurship’; ‘Building an efficient team for my startup; ‘Building an outstanding personal brand through grooming’; and ‘Building a positive and productive career’.
Mrs. Linda Yaa Ampah, President of the Stanford Seed Transformation Network, said the mentorship programme will be held on Zoom, Youtube and Facebook platforms – adding that registration is free at https://bit.lyl3mrsicS. Prospective participants can also visit the STN Ghana website on www.stnghana.org for more information on the mentorship programme and how to participate in it.
According to her, registration has been very high since the programme was announced, which is encouraging and an indication of the interest young leaders have in sharpening their skills to create job opportunities for themselves.
She also encourages more young people to register to have a hands-on experience with the CEOs who will be mentoring them. Selected participants will be given internship opportunities in the various STN Ghana companies, to build and enhance their entrepreneurial and employable skills.
Mrs. Ampah said there is an urgent need to build the capacity of young people who are able to provide pragmatic solutions to economic, social and political challenges. STN is available through the mentorship programme to help young people seeking to create job opportunities themselves to succeed and sustain their businesses.
She said the mentorship programme is part of STN Ghana’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and vision to provide networking, mentoring and internship opportunities to young and emerging leaders, with the aim to push, develop and effectively sustain their entrepreneurship, businesses and work skills.
