Role Model Africa Presents Corporate Dialogue
Introduction: We Tell A Story
Perhaps when Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, remarked that, ‘The Black man is capable of managing his own affairs’, he was more than right. Being considered as the 2nd largest continent on the Planet, the continent is evidently known to be endowed with human capital, people whose influence is indelible on the Globe. We can talk of Native Africans like Kofi Annan, who served us General Secretary to the United Nations for a period of nine (9) years, 1997 to 2006.
His contribution in maintaining peace in several areas remains invaluable. Again we can talk of Dr. Ashiteye Trebi-Ollenu and Dr. Ave Kludze Jr, making their contributions in Robotics at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. In business and entrepreneurship we can talk of Sam Jonah. In Sports the impact of Usain Bolt, Abedi Pele, Didier Drogba to mention a few are skills to be desired. In Ghana the contributions of Azumah Nelson remains legendary.
The African story can be told in this manner, in a very remarkable way. We can sustain this legacy when these Role Models share their stories and mentor young ones to tread their own distinct paths in unique ways making global impact.
INVENTS seek to provide Africa’s Flagship Mentoring Platform dubbed ‘Role Model Africa’, an initiative that seeks to sustain the legacy, values and heritage of Africans whiles increasing our contributions on the globe. We are a continent to be desired. We are unique in our own way. We carry our destiny in our hands. We do not pity ourselves, we are change agents. We are committed to influencing significant progress in systems and structures to necessitate and accelerate growth. We tell a story. We write the books we want to read, we film the movies we want to watch, we start industries to manufacture the products we want to use, we create bridges to convey trans-generations. Nations come to us and we lend to them. We think of generations yet on born. We mentor our younger ones. We tell a story. We are Role Models.- The Role Model Pledge
The Role Model Africa Project seeks to engage Africans whose influence spans beyond the continent.
The Platform will interview African Presidents, Business Magnates, Investors and you name it. It seeks to be a Personality interview that engages the corporate contribution of the person and a wider perspective on Africa.
The Platform which is expected to be a Television program will take off as an interview with a live audience and several episodes will be recorded and later shot on television.
The concept is rooted in the idea that Africans can serve as their own Role models by telling their stories and mentoring younger ones.
The idea is to bring together several key stakeholders to serve as mentors to persons who are in their field or rather interested in taking the similar paths they have engaged in.
The Role Model App will be launched during the premiere of the program. The App which is an online interface will bring together Role Models to mentor individuals and organisations in the quest of sustaining their brands and take the products and services to several parts of Africa and the Globe at large.
