Emmanuel Addo's interview with TV3 of Ghana on youth development



I enable innovation and creativity in people, provide opportunities for capacity building and networking, and cultivate their thinking around what they can do and try new things. I help cultivate insights and ideas; plan, design, and execute forward-thinking workshops, forums, and leadership conferences that allow people to step away from conventional solutions with experiments.
