Albert Mensah Listed Among the World's 60 Top Ranking Motivational Speakers

Inspiring Others, Ghanaian Realizes Personal Dream

Seattle, Washington October 13, 2014: Albert Mensah, who came to the United States from his home in the Ghanaian countryside in Abesewa Ashanti, was recently designated a top ranking motivational speaker by Hunger2Succeed, an organization which assists people from underserved communities to accomplish their most desirable goals and dreams. In their announcement, the judges wrote, "A widely sought after and internationally recognized speaker, author and humanitarian, Albert Mensah is also the author of When the Drumbeat Changes Dance a Different Dance and OK Means Opportunity Knocking. An American citizen since 1994, Albert Mensah’s success story began in the impoverished nation of Ghana, West Africa. Armed with a vision and bolstered by a dream, he developed an action plan that surpassed all barriers because he knew innately that obstacles are just opportunities in disguise."

With an impressive client list that boasts Microsoft, Starbucks, Merrill Lynch, Boeing, John Deere, Nordstrom, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo Bank, Albert continues to build on his strong reputation among business leaders and corporate executives as the catalyst for driving employee morale, increasing work productivity, and enhancing team commitment through his energizing, inspirational, and invigorating speaking engagements.

This year's designation as a top-ranking motivational speaker is a natural product of his drive to motivate others, and reflective of his status as a Certified Speaking Professional—which is the speaking profession’s measure of professional platform skills, and the highest earned designation conferred by the National Speakers Association and the International Federation for Professional Speakers. Only 7% of all professional speakers in the world have earned this designation. In 1999, Albert was the first runner- up at the Toastmaster World Championship of Public Speaking.

His focus on successfully overcoming challenges comes directly from his "rags to riches" story, and his presentations are richly-dotted with stories of his experiences as a Ghanaian immigrant to America. Available for speaking engagements world-wide, Albert can be easily reached for comment or conversation by phone at 206-679-6414 or by email at
