Ms Golloh made the call during the Impact Wave Conference 2024 which took place on Friday 24 May 2024 at the British Council, Ridge-Accra

The President and Founder of Impact Wave Initiative (IWI), Ms Eunice Golloh, has called on the youthful population in Africa to accept that they have inherent potential within them and that it is time to unleash them for the transformation of the continent.

Ms Golloh made the call during the very successful Impact Wave Conference 2024 which took place on Friday 24 May 2024 at the British Council, Ridge – Accra, under the theme “Unleashing the Power in You”.

This year’s edition of the annual conference was attended by hundreds of people ranging from students and aspirational young adults, diplomats, and captains of industry as well as leaders of women-focused groups.

In her virtual speech, the IWI president highlighted that “unleashing the power within requires breaking through your fears, your patterns, and the limiting beliefs that keep you stuck.

“I am expecting you all to walk out of this event with new empowering beliefs and the tools to build new habits.

“Connecting with your fellow youth and some of the dignitaries here, from the successful corporate ladies to the diplomats should inspire you in your life.

“We also have the mentorship programme and other initiatives to help you to make some key decisions and lasting change in your life,” Ms Eunice Golloh said.

Mrs Ayesha Bedwei Ibe, partner and global people leader of tax and legal services at PwC in her keynote address at the event, shared her unique and inspiring life stories as well as her journey in the corporate world with the participants. She entreated the participants to focus on building themselves for the task ahead.

“As young people growing into adulthood, it is a perfect time to consider how you can make the most out of your life, achieve your dreams, enjoy your experience, and minimize regrets if there should even be any,” Mrs Ayesha Bedwei Ibe remarked.

“This is the time in your life to take some practical steps to help you shape who and what you become in the future and you have several leaders who are willing to assist you to make the right decisions and with the support of God”, she further remarked.

The speakers at the event included Mr Immanuel Hamunyela, the deputy head of mission, Namibia High Commissioner to Ghana, Ms Anelli Amanyanga, 3rd secretary, Sierra Leone High Commissioner in Ghana and private secretary to the Sierra Leone High Commissioner to Ghana, Dora Mensah, founder, Fire Brand Global Network.

Other speakers were Apostle Mzimasi Dyule, published author, certified professional life coach, strategist, and leadership trainer, James Kwesi Addison, Ghana’s first internationally certified emotional intelligence master coach and chief executive officer of Addison International, and Bishop Owusu Ansah, an auditor and co-founder of Epicuria Ghana, a nonprofit organization focused on grassroots development.

Impact Wave Conference is an annual gathering of accomplished corporate executives, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and aspirational youth to discuss solutions to the everyday challenges the youth and women are confronted with in the real world.
