Ghanaian international conference speaker and author of ‘I Kissed My Job Goodbye’ has been honoured at the just ended Woman of Stature Global Awards in Dubai. She was awarded winner of the Woman of Stature Global Awards 2022 in Coaching and Mentoring.
The successful entrepreneur and author was honoured for her immense contribution and mentorship for women, especially Africans, to attain higher heights with their careers or entrepreneurial journeys.
Grace Quarshie is a possibility coach and helps African Women monetise their expertise, write and speak by sharing their stories to create global impact. She has trained over 500 women to experience this through her coaching framework Discover, Development, Deployment and Demand.
From being a laid-off employee, broke and struggling young woman, Grace’s resilience and determination have inspired a lot of women worldwide not to give up on themselves despite what they go through in life, but to discover their uniqueness, overcome their fears, and be who God has called them to be.
She has been featured on prime radio and television shows, speaking on beginning an entrepreneurial journey, transformation, resilience, and restoration. She is passionate about helping women experience growth and seeing tangible results in their businesses and lives.
The first Woman of Stature Global Awards, powered and hosted by Hadarat Global, was held at the beautiful Dusit Thani Hotel in Dubai Trade Centre. The Woman of Stature Awards is a prestigious event that recognises the hard work and passion of female entrepreneurs and businesswomen across different industries who have now gone global. The event in Dubai was attended by local dignitaries and international guests from all corners of the globe.
The purpose of the awards is to accelerate the careers and businesses of women, and although many are already prominent players in their respective communities, they have not necessarily fully developed or reached the peak of their success. This award provides many opportunities, gives them access to various platforms, and helps them to develop their skills and talents to climb the ladder of success, and get further faster – which they may find difficult in doing on their own.
