UncategorizedBrand Ghana needs forward looking structures – Oppong Nkrumah by admin September 7, 2023 written by admin September 7, 2023 Bookmark 7 Mr Oppong Nkrumah (middle) with dignitaries after the conferenceThe Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has called for a strategic overhaul of Ghana’s structures to ensure the nation is equipped for a forward-looking future.Addressing the International Advertising Association (IAA)’s 6th Africa Rising Conference in Accra yesterday, Mr Oppong Nkrumah emphasised the critical need for Ghana to adopt innovative and adaptable structures, drawing parallels between the nation’s evolution and the strategies employed by corporate brands navigating a changing landscape.Speaking on the theme “Building Future-Ready Brands”, the Minister stressed, “just as corporate brands must define their purpose, we as a nation must also articulate our overarching purpose.” He said this process requires confronting difficult questions and making bold decisions, one that must inure to the benefit of the country.“Just as we are asking corporate brands to introspect and answer these critical questions to shape their purpose and be future ready, we as a nation must do the same. Whether a corporate or a nation brand to be future ready, these are some of the difficult considerations we must make.“And when we are done, we must be bold to shed off some things we have done for a while. We must take the tough decisions to take new paths without regard to whose ox is gored so that we stand a better chance of being ready for the future rather than champions of the past,” he said.The Minister of Information underscored the need for the nation to prioritise forward-thinking over being champions of the past, emphasising that the path to a future-ready “Brand Ghana” demands courage and a willingness to challenge the status quo, urging that this transformation must occur without regard to whose interest may be affected.“We work for Brand Ghana, not political parties, religious groups, or ethnic divisions,” Mr Oppong Nkrumah declared.He stressed the importance of defining a unified purpose for Brand Ghana that resonates with all citizens, not just a select few, adding, “we must do better at setting out and upholding a set of norms that all of us, not some, will live by,” the Minister said.He emphasised values such as community, integrity, responsibility, and entrepreneurship, urging a collective commitment to these principles.The conference featured a lineup of distinguished speakers, including Chairman and World President of the IAA, Sasan Saeidi, President of the Advertising Association of Ghana, Andrew Ackah, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of X3M IDEAS, Steve Babaeko, Co-founder and MD of Zeepay, Andrew Takyi-Appiah, and other notable dignitaries.Since its inception in 2015, the Africa Rising conference has been a pivotal event on the MarCom calendar across the continent, drawing influential marketing communication professionals from Africa and around the world.With 5 successful editions since its launch and consistently attracting over 400 participants annually, Africa Rising has been a leading force in nurturing a dynamic MarCom industry across Africa while advancing the IAA’s agenda in the region.BY TIMES REPORTERRead NextSeptember 7, 2023Castro laid to rest Saturday …GJA President commiserates with NTC, signs book of condolenceSeptember 7, 2023Migration of health workers: Govt to halt exodus – Health MinisterSeptember 7, 2023Let’s come together for victory 2024 – Veep campaign teamSeptember 7, 2023LeKMA presents GH¢87,679 items to PWDsSeptember 7, 2023Bagre Dam spillage alert: Residents asked to move to higher groundsSeptember 7, 2023Dr Bawumia, Colombian Veep hold bilateral talksSeptember 7, 2023Urgent action needed to achieve SDGs – UNSeptember 6, 2023Workers urged to take advantage of affordable housing projectSeptember 6, 2023Veep inaugurates National Premix Automation Project at ElminaSeptember 6, 2023Promote good agronomical practices to save lives – AGRA 0 comment 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail admin Follow Author previous post Workers urged to take advantage of affordable housing project next post Ghana is on track to receive second tranche of IMF bailout facility – Finance Minister You may also like Bookmark This Couple’s Moment During Their Yoruba Trad Will...
