The Managing Director of FanMilk Ghana PLC, Yeo Ziobeieton, has urged entrepreneurs to build performance driven brands backed by solid productivity database for easy growth and scalability monitoring.
According to him, entrepreneurs are very important players in the business ecosystem because they create employment opportunities for people and ensure their economic empowerment, however, to be a successful entrepreneur that can grow a sustainable brand beyond first generation require critical attention to performance analysis based on realistic target setting.
“Build great entrepreneurship brands backed by performance. Being able to employ about three to ten people as an entrepreneur for the start means you are destined for greatness if only you will be conscious about driving performance to be an excellent business.
If your business would survive as a key distributor, vendor or agent of this brand and still be standing in the next five to ten years, you have to be innovative, institute key performance indicators in your business and drive a sustainable culture toward attaining them,” he said.
The MD made these remarks in his address to key distributors, agents and vendors of the FanMilk products at the third quarter rewards presentation to winners of ‘Akyede Kese Reloaded Promotion.’
