As part of the UK Black History Month celebrations, Ghanaian Londoners Network presents: the ‘Ghana Networking Evening.’
The in-person event to be held under the theme “Inspiration, Opportunities and Networking” will come off on Friday, 29th of October 2021 from 6p till 9pm at the Holiday Inn, Kensington High Street, Wrights Lane, London, W8 5SP.
The Ghana Networking Evening is designed for likeminded professionals and entrepreneurs from all sectors who have interest in connecting, doing business, relocating, visiting or investing in Ghana.
A recent diaspora engagement mapping for Ghana by EUDiF revealed that remittances from the diaspora contributed to 5.5 percent of the country’s GDP. Taking remittances as a stand-alone even proves that the role of global diasporas in nation building cannot be overemphasized.
The Ghana Networking Evening will therefore feature relevant speakers who are making an impact in their chosen fields – living, investing and doing business in Ghana. Each of these speakers will be sharing their experiences, insights, stories, lessons and opportunities available in their various sectors. They will also offer tips and advice for anyone else thinking of making the move to Ghana; either to invest, do business, relocate or looking to build a solid network.
