PHD Ghana is taking its longstanding partnership with Ashesi a step further with a special focus on Ashesi’s student talent pool through its support for the University’s career fairs, and offering student mentorships, summer internship programmes, national service placements and full time employment opportunities for its graduates.
Ashesi’s 2018 career fair provided yet another opportunity for PHD Ghana to support, as a silver sponsor, with its CEO, Bright Ladzekpo, serving as a judge during the fair’s Elevator Pitch, as well as Most Enterprising Business Pitch competition designed to test and enhance students’ skills in public speaking, personal grooming and business etiquette.
Winner of the Elevator Pitch, Jean Quarcoopome said: “The Elevator Pitch competition was very testing because I was only given 60 seconds to persuade and illustrate who I am and what I am about. So I invested the bulk of my efforts preparing for that competition. Essentially I thought of one of my best, most employable skills in my skill set, which is creativity and artistry, and connected that skill to my future career in Brand Management.”
At the end of the fair, PHD Ghana presented souvenirs that included the agency’s latest thought leadership book, ‘Merge – The closing gap between technology and us’, to winners of the two competitions.
PHD Ghana is, currently, the fastest growing media agency in Ghana, according to the world’s leading research company evaluating the media agency industry, RECMA.
“We have always tapped Ashesi’s young talent right from the start of our operations in Ghana and are looking to extend this to our offices in Nigeria, Kenya, Cote D’Ivoire and South Africa in the years ahead as Ashesi’s student diversity continues to grow across the African continent.” said Bright Ladzekpo, PHD Ghana CEO.
