Cheryl Priscilla Opoku, Human Capital Business Partner, People and Culture at Stanbic Bank Ghana, has advocated for entrepreneurship backed by passion and drive among young people.

She said this at the University of Ghana Career and Counselling Center’s Career Day 2024 held at the Confucius Institute on the University of Ghana campus.

Speaking at the event, Ms. Opoku highlighted the importance of identifying and nurturing passion to drive success in both personal and professional endeavors. “Passion is the thing that puts a spring in your step and a spark in your eye. Life is more than just your career; you can always pursue your passion and make an impact on the community and the people around you. These young people need to identify their passion. Our role is to guide them in aligning their strengths with their passions to create fulfilling career paths.” she stated.

“At Stanbic, we say Ghana is our home; we drive her growth. We understand the pivotal role human resources play in driving national growth.

We have been a consistent participant in the ‘UG Career Fair’ for the past five years because we believe that these young people have the power to transform the country if they are given the needed support.

They are the future of the nation, and we are always ready to support them in making their dreams come true,” Cheryl Opoku added.

Cheryl Opoku also noted some initiatives by the bank to support young entrepreneurs nationwide. She said, “The Stanbic Incubator has been set up as a hub to grow businesses right from the ideation stage.

This program provides young people with the needed resources to grow their businesses in terms of advisory services, skills development, mentorship programmes and access to market and partners. We look forward to partnering with young entrepreneurs and guiding them to grow their businesses.”

The theme for this year’s Career Day was ‘Your Passion.’ The event saw notable personalities from different fields offer talks on their various fields to guide the young students.
