Giovani expressed enthusiasm and gratitude to be part of the prestigious awards ceremony, which he sees as an opportunity to put his talent to play.
“I’m glad to be chosen to be part of the prestigious Ghana Club 100 awards. A scheme that has over the past 15 years seen and recognised Ghanaian businesses and opened up for many opportunities. I know a lot of hard work has gone into the organisation of this event.
“It’s going to be an evening to reinforce Ghana’s strategic positioning for investments and for a young person like myself, I’m looking forward to sharing in that journey, think Ghana, make it happen,” Giovani told Starrfmonline.com.
This year’s edition of the Ghana club 100 awards which is themed: “Manufacturing; Steering Ghana’s Development,” will have President John Dramani Mahama as the special guest of honour.
The objective of GC 100 is to develop an open information culture within the Ghanaian corporate sector, provide incentives for improved performance, develop uniform criteria for evaluating performance and to establish an annual as well as current analysis of the corporate sector.
There will be awards for the top 100 businesses and awards for the leading companies in each of the strategic sectors.
Best companies in agriculture and agribusiness; financial services; information and communication technology (ICT); services; infrastructure; oil and gas; mining; manufacturing; tourism; health and education, would be awarded.
“There would be special awards for outstanding business performers in selected categories including corporate social responsibility. A new UNICEF special award for the Coalition of Children will also feature in this year’s event.”
