Tawa Bolarin, Vodafone Ghana’s Director of the Enterprise Business Unit, has called on Small and Medium-Scale Enterprises (SMEs) across the nation to take advantage of the upcoming Vodafone Business Runway event to bolster their growth and resilience in an ever-evolving marketplace.
“In today’s dynamic business landscape, it’s crucial for SMEs to equip themselves with the right tools and knowledge. The Vodafone Business Runway is not just an event; it’s an opportunity,” said Tawa.
This year’s event is themed "Good to Great with Vodafone: Innovate, Comply and Expand." The line-up promises a wealth of knowledge from industry experts. Ama Bawuah, Board Chair of Access bank and Charlotte Amankwah, Director of Commercial Business Banking at Ecobank Ghana, will discuss "Accessing Sustainable Finance." Andrew Ackah, CEO of Dentsu Ghana, will share insights on "Building Innovative Brands." Dr Abdallah Ali-Nakyea, Managing Partner at Ali-Nakyea & Associates, will delve into the intricacies of "Navigating the Tax Maze."
Beyond the Business Runway, Vodafone Ghana has consistently shown its commitment to the SME sector. As part of the SME Month, the company has rolled out a comprehensive suite of initiatives, including the introduction of 4G+ connectivity, device financing schemes, and the innovative One Business offering, designed to provide companies with a holistic communication solution.
In a nod to the changing times and the importance of inclusivity, Vodafone Ghana has innovatively designed the event to cater to both physical and virtual attendees. “We understand that not everyone can be physically present, but we believe in leaving no one behind. Our hybrid event model ensures that all interested SMEs, regardless of their location, can benefit from the insights shared,” Tawa added.
The event is scheduled for 29th September at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel, Accra from 8:00am to 12:00 pm. SMEs are encouraged to seize this unique opportunity by grabbing one of the limited slots available on vodafone.com.gh/vbrunway.
