40 Individuals nominated for maiden Ghana CEO Vision and Awards

A total of 40 individuals have been shortlisted for the first edition of the Ghana Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Vision and Awards Project scheduled for April 29, 2022, at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra.

The nominees were shortlisted out of the 113 individuals that had been considered for the awards.

The project which is the first of its kind also entails a documentary film on top CEOs, magazine features and awards.

The project seeks to recognize and reward leadership excellence across all industry and business sectors in Ghana while celebrating achievement, innovation and leadership brilliance within the business environment of Ghana.

Project Lead at the Ghana CEO Vision and Awards Project, Mr Latif Abubakar said the Project also seeks to provide a thriving platform for CEOs to stay connected, stay relevant, stay ahead of the game and be celebrated while creating opportunities and celebrating visionaries.

"The Ghana CEO Vision will pitch Ghana and its various business sectors to the world, document and share innovative successes chalked up by CEOs and celebrate those who have transformed lives and country," he said.

Keynote Speaker

Mr Abubakar said the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo had been chosen as the keynote speaker to lead the project because of his role as the CEO of the country.

"The President doubles as the CEO of our country, and it just sits right that you have no other person lead this kind of project than the CEO of CEOs," he said.

Benchmark of excellence

Describing the awards as a benchmark of excellence, he said the benchmarks for individual leadership performance would be based on some key performance indicators (KPIs) that define the standards of excellence.

"Key among the standards would be innovation, sustainability, corporate social responsibility, job creation and profits," he noted.

Theme

Themed “Leadership worth celebrating,” the Ghana CEO Vision has been divided into three platforms which include a documentary film production, awards and dinner, and the Ghana CEO Magazine.

Some of the award categories are the awards CEO of CEOs, Female of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year.

"The Ghana CEO Vision will pitch Ghana and its various business sectors to the world, document and share innovative successes chalked up by CEOs and celebrate those who have transformed lives and country," he said.

Mr Abubakar said the CEO vision project would have a 15-minute episodic documentary film of the CEOs.

He added that these CEOs will be drawn from each industry in the country and would unravel their innovations, vision and experience that made them deserving of an award from the Ghana CEO Awards.

Ghana CEO Magazine

Mr Abubakar said as part of measures to connect investors across the globe to Ghana, the CEO magazine would document investment opportunities in the country and CEOs' pitches of their respective industries and companies.
 
He added that the magazine would be strategically placed at all Ghana diplomatic missions abroad and all diplomatic missions in Ghana, trade missions across the globe and also made available to relevant stakeholders.

The Ghana CEO Vision and Awards Project is being organised by Globe Productions in partnership with the GhanaCEO.Com, the Ministry of Information, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration with support from the Institute of Directors Ghana.
