How do you think digitization is going to influence your work/industry?

I believe that even after Covid-19 ceases to be a menace, digitisation will be the trend and so all businesses must position themselves for their survival.

Yes, it is important to have a sustainable strategy. I am gradually digitising most of the processes at the workplace.

Does the course you are studying at Athena helping you to achieve your goals? Does it have a direct impact on the business or job you do? If yes, please elaborate.

Yes,the course has had a direct impact on my business. For example, it has taught me to adopt many sustainability measures like sending reports by WhatsApp/email instead of printing on paper.

What are your future plans relating to your career/business?

After completing Master of International Business Administration( IMBA), I intend to top up with Doctorate of Busines Administartion (DBA) aimed at broadening my knowledge further in order to build more businesses that will be internationally known and go beyond the borders of Ghana.
