Dr. Dei Tumi to tell his 'rags to riches' story in UK

One of Ghana's most prolific businessmen and TV personalities, Dr Emmanuel Dei Tumi, will be making a rare appearance in the UK to share the secrets of his success and inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs at Possibility 2015, a breakfast meeting hosted by Kingdom Life Ministries (KLM), North London, on Saturday June 27, 2015.

Dr Dei Tumi is a living example of the age old adage 'It's not where you start it's where you finish.' One of seven children, he grew up in abject poverty after his father died when he was just 18 months old. Greatly inspired by a resourceful mother, who had to feed and clothe seven children after her husband's death, Dr Dei Tumi devised various cash making schemes and learned to set goals in order to survive.

Despite living with major financial constraints, Dr Dei Tumi achieved his goals to go to college, and then University. And though he suffered near financial ruin, his faith in God and the support of his wife has enabled him to build a number of very successful businesses which includes Future Leaders Micro Finance, a company which provides a range of financial services including micro-loans for business start-ups and Human Capital International which unearths and develops human potential.

Alongside his other business interests, Dr Dei Tumi has also played a key role in establishing the motivational speaking industry in Ghana through his conferences and motivational products.

Bishop E O Ansah, Senior Pastor of KLM Ministries hopes that Dr Dei Tumi will inspire British Christians to either establish their own business enterprises or strive for success in their respective industries.

Bishop Ansah stated, "We live in an exciting age where great opportunities exist for those individuals willing to step out by faith, or take a risk to establish businesses. KLM Ministries has invited Dr Dei Tumi to address our first ever business breakfast because we believe many will be able to relate to his 'rag to riches' experiences, and through sharing his life story he'll make people realise no dream is impossible to achieve. I also believe he will challenge and motivate those present at POSSIBILITY 2015 to overcome whatever challenge they may be experiencing to pursue the dream/vision God has placed on their hearts."

Christian business woman, author and public speaker Mavis Amankwah, is also scheduled to speak at Possibility 2015 and will share her secrets to business success, as well as divulge tips on how people can promote and market their businesses and raise finance.
