As well as hearing the experience from each graduate and being treated to the pitches of a selection of the cohort, our audience was also treated to the wise words of the illustrious Ghanaian business icon, Kofi Dadzie, who spoke to the importance of using their talent, training, cunning, foresight, leadership and experience to ensure they position themselves to be in the right place, at the right time – to be where the ball will fall.
