National Service Personnel attend Entrepreneurial Seminar in Bolga

National Service Personnel drawn from the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region have attended a day’s Entrepreneurship Seminar held in the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly hall in the region.

The event which was organised last week Friday by the Municipal National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) Secretariat supported by the Municipal office of NASPA was aimed at building the capacity of the personnel to establish their own enterprises instead of always relying solely on the government for jobs.

The Executive Director of the Restorative Seed Society, a social enterprise organisation based in Bolgatanga, Mr Hillary Adongo, who was the Resource Person for the occasion, took the participants through the subject matter “Starting a business with little money or no money at all”, using the “Social Business Challenge Model.”

He charged the participants to give deep thought to any idea they conceived in starting their businesses and to also strictly follow the outlined steps in the model to get their businesses to  succeed.

A banker and entrepreneur, Mr Jackson Anagbila, also inspired the participants with his success story in business and told the service personnel that there were a lot of business opportunities out there,   said what was needed was to explore the needs of the people and to kick- start.

He therefore admonished them not to depend solely on government jobs but to challenge themselves by establishing their own businesses to also employ others.

Mr Razak Dimbie, a teacher and a “Mindfulness” expert    took  the service personnel   through  how to maximise one’s potential.

The Municipal Coordinator of NASPA and the Patron of the Association, Mr Korley Brown, in his remarks, expressed gratitude to the resource persons for challenging the personnel unto greater works.

The  executive  members of the association  comprise the  President,  Mr Michael Atadena; the Vice President ,  Miss Rubiatu Bundaana Tia;  the   Financial Secretary,  Miss Charity Mmabila Nyaaba;  the Secretary , Miss Judy Aminatu Atambire; the Organising Secretary , Mr John Abagna, and the  Women’s Commissioner , Miss Gladys  Mmabila Nyaaba.

They indicated that they would encourage more of their members to come together to go into business ventures.
