2 bodies honour AAG Executive Director (Saturday, January 10, 2015) pg 15
The India Partnership Summit and Africa Leadership Awards have honoured the Executive Director of the Advertising Association of Ghana, Mr Francis Dadzie, for his contribution to the growth of the advertising industry in Ghana.
The award is conferred on people who have demonstrated leadership capabilities in creating business opportunities by which growth and development has occurred.
He received the award which was used to crown the Africa India Partnership Summit in Mauritius.
The summit was used to showcase achievers and leaders who have demonstrated leadership capabilities in creating business opportunities by which growth and development has occurred.
The Event is organised for a professional cause to facilitate sharing of knowledge and experiences.
Recipient of the awards are honoured based on criteria including leadership skills, business ethics, interpersonal skills, charisma, visionary, change-agent and business acumen.
The award consists of a statuette and a citation to recognise the valuable contribution.
The event brought together more than 200 senior decision makers across Asia and Africa to showcase achievers and leaders who have demonstrated leadership capabilities in creating business opportunities by which growth and development has occurred.
Speaking to the Daily Graphic, Mr Dadzie said the award was “a recognition of the work we are doing and the fact that you need to make impact wherever you are.”
“If somebody somewhere does research on each country and recognises the work you are doing, it is quite elating.”
“Whatever you are doing in your corner and you think nobody recognises it, God does and at the appropriate time, God uses people to reward the hard work and diligence.”
Mr Dadzie, who has been working in the advertising industry for a little over 15 years, said the award was an encouragement to innovate and bring new ideas and provide training for practitioners in the industry.
He said the ultimate goal was to have an industry that had process and structures—a system that would be established by the Advertising Bill.
Other recipients were from Kenya, Sri Lanka, Bahrain, Uganda, South Africa, and Mauritius.
