The Chief Executive Officer of Tobinco Group of Companies, Elder Samuel Amo Tobbin, and an African Marketing scholar, Prof. Ebo Hinson, among other prolific business persons will be speaking at this year’s Victory Business Summit and Fair (VBSF).
Chief Executive Officer of Shallom Edibles Shallom Adu-Bediako will also be in the line-up to speak.
Victory Business Summit and Fair is an annual business mentorship and exhibition event put together by the Victory Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, situated at Fafraha near Adenta in Accra.
A Planning Committee member, K. O. Adu Labi, explained that the event is couched to meet the development needs of the communities in which the church is situated.
He said the objective of the event is to provide entrepreneurial skills that will encourage interested persons start their own business.
Knowing the current statistics of unemployment in the country, especially among the youth, he thinks the event serves a dire need.
In acknowledging the 25th Anniversary of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, the Victory Business Summit, will come off on July 1 and 2, on the theme: ’25 Years and Beyond: Sustaining Entrepreneurship in a Changing World’.
Elder Amo Tobbin, who has over 20 years experience in business management, will speak on the topic ’Step out of the box; see opportunities all around’ and will also give his considerable insights on ‘Surviving at the Top’.
Mrs. Adu-Bediako will speak on ‘Growing in Business’, which will focus on the practicalities of business growth using Shallom Edibles as a case study.
The marketing professional, Prof. Hinson, will round up that particular topic with ‘Growing in Business II’, which will focus on maintaining stability in a growing entrepreneurial venture.
The other leg of the event is the Business Fair. It is expected to host a lot of exhibitors to showcase a wide range of goods and services the two-day duration.
Goods and services to exhibit would include ready-to-eat meals, packaged convenience foods and farm produce, hand-crafted jewellery, homecare products, health products, books, clothing, footwear, cosmetics, furniture, farming equipment, financial services, insurance, and telecommunications services and more.
