40 people nominated for the first Ghana CEO Vision and Awards project


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

Nominees were shortlisted from 113 people who had been considered for the awards.

The project, which is a novelty, the first of its kind and an event never seen before, includes a documentary film on the best CEOs, magazine articles and awards.

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

It also aims to provide the most important and coveted presentation platforms for CEOs who have used the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately the country.

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

“The Ghana CEO Vision will showcase Ghana and its various business sectors to the world, document and share the innovative successes achieved by CEOs and celebrate those who have transformed lives and countries,” he said.

Keynote speaker
Mr Abubakar said the chairman, Nana Akufo-Addo, was chosen as the keynote speaker to spearhead the project because of his role as the country’s CEO.

“The president also serves as the CEO of our country, and it’s quite normal that you don’t have anyone else leading this type of project other than the CEO of CEOs,” he said.

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

“Key among the standards would be innovation, sustainability, corporate social responsibility, job creation and profit,” he noted.

Platforms
Under the theme “Leadership Worth Celebrating”, the Ghana CEO Vision was divided into three platforms which include a documentary film production, awards and dinner, and Ghana CEO Magazine.

Categories
Some of the award categories that promise to be the toast of the evening are the CEO of CEOs, Woman of the Year, and Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

Explaining the details of CEO Vision, Project Manager at Ghana CEO Vision, Mr. Latif Abubakar said Ghana CEO Vision seeks to provide a thriving platform for CEOs to stay connected, stay relevant, keep advance and be celebrated while creating opportunities and celebrating visionaries.

“The Ghana CEO Vision will showcase Ghana and its various business sectors to the world, document and share the innovative successes achieved by CEOs and celebrate those who have transformed lives and countries,” he said.

Documentary film
Mr. Abubakar said the CEO Vision Project will feature a 15-minute episodic documentary film on CEOs.
These CEOs will be the best CEOs in each industry in the country who will showcase their innovations, vision and experience that made them worthy of an award from the Ghana CEO Awards.

Awards
The awards ceremony would provide a platform to celebrate CEOs who have transformed lives and played a significant role in the growth and development of their industry.

Ghana’s CEO Magazine
As part of the measures to connect investors from around the world to Ghana, the CEO magazine would document investment opportunities in the country and presentations by CEOs of their respective industries and companies.

The magazine would be strategically placed in all Ghanaian diplomatic missions abroad and in all diplomatic missions in Ghana, trade missions across the world and also made available to relevant stakeholders.

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