The much awaited third brunch meeting of the Ghana Mompreneurs Club came off last week Thursday September 21, 2017 inside East Legon as usual brought together amazing women from all over Ghana who came together to network, learn and be inspired.
This guest speaker for this brunch meeting session was Mamaga Abla Dzifa Gomashie, former deputy tourism minister. The MC for the occasion was our very own Mavis of Canada Ghana Nutrition Centre.
Mothers were given the opportunity to come along with their kids, and they were well hosted with a loaded programme line up with sessions from Soronko Academy, Etiquette plus and powered by Junior Shapers Africa.
The host for the interview session with the guest speaker as Mubaraka Salih ( Basaasha Bissap) . The guest speaker shared her journey with us from childhood through to her role as the former deputy minister for tourism. She touched on the need for women to be firm when they face the hard times in their entrepreneurship journeys.
She encouraged women to be keepers for each other and also support each others business as she mentioned, “Killing your sisters shine will not make yours shine brighter”.
She also touched on the need to outsource business especially when it did not fall within ones products and services. With this she encouraged Mompreneurs to recommend their fellow Mompreneurs for business opportunities they could not handle as this would open up more opportunities.
The next session of the programme was led by Mompreneur Gloria Yankson from Cancer Connect GH. She spoke on issues related to cancer and touched on some causes of cancer, its treatment and some preventive measures mothers gathered there could take to stay clear of the deadly disease.
She touched on the need to eat healthy, go for regular check ups and also minimize the usage of mobile phone especially with children. She advised us to put phones off especially in the night where most of us tend to sleep with our mobile phones.
After her session, the mothers gathered were allowed to ask some few questions relating to the discussion Mompreneur Gloria had on cancer.
We also had a brief session with Ransford, CEO of Hover Consult. He educated us on the types of solar panels and how possible it was to get this set up for as low as GHS3,500. You can hit them up for all your Solar panel needs on 0240941991 or follow them on Facebook on hoverconsult.
