Stanbic Ghana is introducing a new series on thought leadership starting this week.
Called ‘Inspire Ghana’, the series will challenge leaders, entrepreneurs, professionals and the youth, to attain greater levels of excellence, by encouraging strategic thinking and an entrepreneurial spirit.
The headline speaker for the maiden edition is Vusi Thembekwayo, the youngest director of a listed company in South Africa.
Vusi is a business speaker who empowers his audience with new knowledge, research findings and tools that they can apply in their businesses to achieve sterling results.
To help promote entrepreneurship he will share with students of the University of Ghana, the blueprints of his success story with a talk on “Realising the Potential in You”.
To engender a more strategic way of thinking in business, Vusi will later in the week speak to a select group of Stanbic Bank customers on the topic: Business Without Limits.
Mawuko Afadzinu, Head, Marketing and Communications of Stanbic Bank, is optimistic that Vusi’s presentation will also strongly communicate the bank’s desire and interest in ensuring its clients’ businesses thrive.
“When businesses hit a plateau and people are suffering from monotony, a radical shift in behaviour is needed to improve results,” he said. Vusi’s presentations are unparalleled and they give managers and leaders real tools for real change.”
The programme will be in three sessions. Vusi will interact and mentor students of the University of Ghana Business School and Staff of Stanbic Bank, after which the series will be climaxed with some of the bank’s Commercial Banking customers.
Popularly known as the Rockstar of Public Speaking, Vusi will speak on the theme, “Realising the potential in you”.
By age 17, Vusi had been ranked first in Africa for public speaking and went on to place third at the English Speaking Union International Competition.
At 21, he ran a 26 million dollar division in a multi-billion dollar enterprise.
He is currently the MD of a boutique investment and advisory firm.
