Why should we listen to your talk?
Want to Have a Better Economy? Dont buy Made-in-Ghana. Want Your Child to Get a Job After College, Buy Brand Ghana!
Theme: Innovating The Arts And Crafts Sector to Create Employment Opportunities for Ghanas Youth. Thesis: Nationalistic marketing will NOT improve our economy. We, consumers, DO NOT buy out of a nationalistic inclination; we buy out of our own self-interest and will always choose products that intrigue us over ones were buy for the greater good of the country. On the other hand, we pray for our children to get jobs after they graduate but how can God answer our prayers when our businesses are dying? Luckily, if we set a standard for our expectations of Brand Ghana, our local entrepreneurs will be challenged to invent and innovate products we desire. Consumption of Brand Ghana improves the economy and creates employment opportunities for the nations youth.
