Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong, the Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies, inaugurated the 11th edition of the Jospong Leadership Conference at the Pentecost Convention Centre in Gomoah Fetteh.

At the commencement of the conference, Dr. Agyepong began by expressing gratitude to God for the success of another year. He extended a warm welcome to distinguished guests, including Chief Operating Officer Dr. Samanjith Udumalagala and CEO of Asian African Consortium Mrs. Adelaide Araba Siaw Agyepong.

Before delving into the conference’s theme, Dr. Agyepong took a moment to remember colleagues who had departed in the preceding year. He emphasized the importance of unity and remembrance within the Jospong family, highlighting the significance of honoring and cherishing the contributions of those who have been a part of the journey.

Reflecting on the past 11 years of the leadership conference, Dr. Agyepong highlighted the positive impact of the annual event. He attributed its success to the dedication and hard work of the Group’s employees, recognizing their contributions in making the conference a meaningful and successful tradition.

The 2024 Leadership Conference theme, ‘Driving Business Excellence through Innovation, Sustainability and Empowerment’, was unveiled with a clear message that innovation is crucial for achieving the Group’s vision of becoming a leading business in Africa.

Addressing sustainability, Dr. Agyepong underlined Jospong Group’s commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues. The call for collaboration and innovative thinking echoed throughout his speech, emphasizing the need for intentional efforts in sustainable businesses and financial modelling to empower employees and stakeholders.

Capacity building emerged as a key focus, with Dr. Agyepong emphasizing the importance of investing in the Group’s human capital. He highlighted various training programs undertaken in the past year, including international initiatives such as waste recovery and recyclables training in Thailand, as well as participation in global conferences like COP 28.

The Jospong Academy’s role in designing innovative learning programmes has been critical to the conglomerate’s growth.

Speaking on the topic ‘Empower for Greatness: Igniting Businesses’, president of the Full Gospel Men’s Fellowship-International, Mr. Baba Mahama, asked business owners to simplify and define their missions to employees if they want them empowered.

He said the first place to look for competition is no other place than within one’s organization.
