Last Thursday night, young professionals from various industries and professions gathered at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra for our exclusive launch and first ever panel discussion.
The panel discussion and cocktail reception brought together these young entrepreneurs, professionals and students for a time of sisterly (…and brotherly) bonding over knowledge-sharing through career discussions, professional experiences from our panel, and potential mentorship opportunities.
The event commenced with a few words from founder and CEO of The Savvy Madam, Afua Osei, to officially launch the organization, followed by the introduction of panellists by presiding host of the evening, Deborah Vanessa Owusu Bonsu. It then culminated in the much anticipated panel discussions where young entrepreneurs of the panel shared some of their experiences, knowledge acquired from their business dealings in the industry and tips for starting and ensuring the survival of your own business. Several questions bordering on how to start and maintain a career were raised by members of the audience which received stellar responses and solutions both from the panelists and some audience members who were themselves professionals in varying fields.
The launch was full of exciting perks which included rare opportunities in networking and potential mentorship from young entrepreneurs already in the business. It ended with a cocktail refreshment and interaction session among the participants.
Overall, the event was a complete success that proved The Savvy Madam’s commitment to fostering and nurturing entrepreneurial spirits among young people on the African continent. It also sealed the foundation for further promising future events. More of such events have been scheduled for the year. Check out photos from the event:
