From 09-10 September 2016, Dusk Capital Limited, an investment banking and financial advisory firm and its sister organization Dusk Foundation organized a personal development workshop for the youth. The workshop came off at the SRC Conference hall of the University of Ghana and formed part of their 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility program.
The exercise, which covered topics such as career development, grooming, savings and investment, communications, CV writing and job hunting brought together over 30 participants. Participants came from diverse backgrounds.
Prior to holding the event, the CEO of West Cape Strategy Group, the company that manages Dusk Capital’s online presence and brand strategy, Mr. Isidore Kpotufe said: “The workshop will shed lights on critical factors that pose threats to the development of young people in Ghana and it promises to be transformative.”
In a conversation with the organizers, Constance Adjei, one of the participants at the workshop admitted that until she attended the event, she was “ill-informed” about 80% of the issues covered at the workshop.
All the participants surveyed expressed similar sentiments regarding the quality of both the content and facilitators of the workshop.
The workshop was facilitated by seasoned career development experts and professionals, notably Mr. Bernard Osei–Tutu and Mrs. Yvonne Ohui MacCarthy, respectively CEO and Corporate Affairs Manager at Dusk Capital Limited. Interventions also came from staff of the organizers.
Dusk Capital used the workshop as a platform to extensively educate the participants on financial literacy. Mrs. Yvonne Ohui MacCarthy announced that her outfit was ready to financially support young people with catalytic entrepreneurial ideas.
Inspired, supported and empowered, the participants were convinced they had attended probably the best workshop of the year.
The exercise was largely covered by the local media.
