RETURN TO GHANA SUMMIT 2019
Visionaries Lorna Blake of Empower Yourself Consulting and Teca Cameron-Tackie of Teca Cameron-A Professional Development Company, both John C. Maxwell Certified Leadership Coaches, Speakers and Trainers have come together to deliver an informative online summit.
This online summit is aimed at bringing together some of the brilliant minds and passionate hearts who have a love for Africa and want to engage the broader African community in the Diaspora, to consider Africa, specifically Ghana, as a great place to visit and a viable investment destination.
We believe that Africa is the future, that the continent possesses a wealth of resources to sustain itself, but we recognize that it cannot do that without the mobilization of it’s people.
Europe and North America have all benefited greatly from the advancements of African Descendants. We now know it is time for our great mother Africa to be rewarded with the return of her children to explore, develop and sustain the nations as they're feeling called to.
Ghana has announced that 2019 Marks the Year of Return to commemorate the start of the transatlantic slave trade. We want to encourage Africans and African Descendants to discover the true beauty of the continent, starting with a trip to the beautiful nation of Ghana.
