Prof. Adei, Bernard Avle, others challenge BEIGE Talents to dare to be different

Professor Stephen Adei, Bernard Avle, among others have challenged BEIGE Talents to dare to be different in society. They said this at this year’s BEIGE Talents Ball held at the BEIGE Capital Asset Management premises last week.

The awards night is an annual year programme usually held to award distinguished talents who have excelled in their various departments of placements.

Commenting on the need to be different, Prof. Adei said “As young graduates you need to exhibit competence, capacity and care in your daily engagements at your various departments. He also added that to be successful, one needs to be competent and build capacity in every area that one is placed.”

Also gracing the occasion was the ace broadcast journalist and TV host of the Ghana Report, Bernard Avle, who was also the special guest of honour. Bernard advised the young graduates to be problem solvers and not complainers.

“The nation needs young people who create solutions for existing problems. We need to change the situation we find ourselves in Ghana. The solution to our problems lie with change makers who dare to be different and not just join the band wagon of problem complainers.”

He added that Mike Nyinaku dared to be different despite the challenges he faced when he was setting up the company in which these young graduates find themselves in now. Encouraging the young graduates to generate and produce content that will change the lives of people around them, he appealed to every young person around to emulate the example of other countries like the United States.

He said “the United States is not powerful because of nuclear weapons but because of content that they create.

Giving his final remarks, Bernard said “Substance and quality are not in degrees and qualifications but in hard work, perseverance, dedication and commitment to excellence.”

Giving her speech at the ceremony, the Centre Manager of the BEIGE Academy, Ms. Rosalind Nana Amoah said “This year has seen our third batch of about One Hundred and Nine (109) Talents enrolled onto the Programme. For us, it is a significant achievement, as we are happy to be part of the grooming and nurturing of our younger Talents for the future of our nation.” The Centre Manager also took the opportunity to congratulate winners of the various awards.

Again, Ms. Rosalind said these Talents are evaluated periodically for transition onto the various stages of the programme, upon satisfactory performance. More so, those that prove exceptional in the evaluation are moved into the mainstream workforce of the various business units within The BEIGE Group.

Dr. Elsie Kaufmann, Mr. Kofi Adu Otutu Labi who are board members of The BEIGE Group were among the guests that graced the occasion. They also advised and encouraged the young graduates to work hard and eschew all forms of indiscipline so as to make it in life.

BEIGE Academy is a special purpose institution established in March 2010 for training and career development. The Academy intends to build a more formal institution for Career Development.
