What You Missed at the Last Conference:


  • I was privileged to be part of the few that made it in person to The Bold New Normal (TBNN) Conference organized by Lucy Quist. She’s a lady I admire so much and having the opportunity to be in the same room with her during the conference would have done it for me but that’s not all. I enjoyed every session and had some key takeaways but my favourite was the Masterclass session because we made some life-altering decisions during this session. In the first place, I’m glad the book in which I made these notes is not dusty but more importantly I’m glad that I’m taking consistent steps towards achieving this. It may not happen as fast as you want it but I’m a great believer of consistency. Thanks, Lucy for this program and to all the keynote speakers too.

  • I signed up for the maiden TBNN conference with so much anticipation, and I was floored when I attended. The speakers literally opened floodgates of inspiration. One thing I took to my new drinks business is to be effective in my operations to boost productivity. I have since outsourced hectic tasks to competent people to make better use of my time. Additionally, as the Programmes Coordinator at Leading Ladies Network, I gleaned that I needed to reframe my work as my contribution to making Ghana and Africa prosperous, as I worked towards providing leadership coaching/mentoring to women and girls. My idea of authenticity was further sharpened as Ms Fatou (MD of Vlisco Ghana) took to the podium. I recall her stressing that one's professional achievements must be in sync with one's personal values. I am now more focused on not putting out a false self - personally or professionally. I strive to live out the values of service, compassion and equity, every day, everywhere. As a first-time mom, I aim all the more to leave a better world for my daughter and her generation. Ow, and I fell in love with Ghana and Africa, afresh! I also got a clearer outlook for another business idea I've been nursing.
