Over the weekend, International Business Leader and former CEO of Tigo DRC, Uche Ofodile, hosted some young professional women to brunch at the plush Urban Grill restaurant in Accra to talk about excelling in their careers.
The session brought together about 20 young professionals including entrepreneurs. Others were from the telecom and financial sectors, the media and the creative arts.
At the 3 hour interactive session, the ladies asked for career guidance on several topics including staying motivated, taking their careers to the next level up, becoming better line managers and excelling in their respective fields. The entrepreneurs were particularly focused on how to build a strong brand for their business and themselves.
In an interview after the discussion, Uche, who is passionate about nurturing and empowering the next generation of African leaders hoped it would be a regular forum where young professionals will share their experiences, network and motivate each other.
