2021 DIGITAL FORUM
OPRATIONALIZING GHANA'S DIGITAL
BCOMM designed, planned, produced and promoted the 2021 Digital Forum: Operationalizing Ghana’s Digital Transformation Agenda
on behalf of TechGulf LLC, a technology company that develops and promotes digital storage infrastructure to accelerate the growth of Africa’s digital economy.
The 2-Day Digital Forum brought thought leaders, policymakers, and seasoned business executives from Ghana and the U.S. to engage in discussions to share best practices, current trends, and issues related to building business relationships and partnerships.
Our goal was to create collaborations and partnerships as well as attract investments that integrated various forms of infrastructure to reap numerous benefits.
We achieved this by planning, organizing in-depth
discussions and engagements on four key topics.
Digital Innovation & Transformation
BCOMM developed content and designed graphics to use across all channels, including the Eventbrite page where attendees would register to attend the forum. We utilized Hopin, an event technology platform that acts as a virtual venue and allows guests to move in and out of “rooms”,
just like an in-person conference.
To raise awareness for the event, BCOMM crafted and disseminated a press release that included key quotes from TechGulf LLC Chief Executive Officer, Franklin Asare and Board Chairman, Kofi Bonner. We also secured media placements on GhanaWeb’s website homepage, promoting event attendance.
Setting The Virtual Stage:
The Digital Forum included introductory remarks by Ghana’s Ambassador to the U.S., Amb. Barfour Adjei-Barwuah, The U.S. Ambassador to Ghana, Amb. S. Sullivan., Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister for Communications and Digitalization, and closing remarks by Yofi Grant, CEO of GIPC and Kofi Bonner, Board Chairman, TechGulf LLC.
The first of TechGulf’s panel series was moderated by CEO & Chairman of Overland Tandberg, Eric Kelly, who shed light on the complexities of setting up and maintaining Data Centers, the potential for socio-economic gains, and the need for data generated on continental Africa to be owned, stored, and mined by Africans. Panelists included Max Peterson, VP of International Sales Public Sector for Amazon Web Services, Richard Okyere-Fus, Director General, National Information Technology Agency, Derrydean Dadzie, Digital Transformation Consultant & Policy Advisor, Samuel Amanor, CEO, BlueSpace Africa, and David Ofori, Operations Manager, Accra Digital Center.
A Successful Turnout
2021 Digital Forum: Operationalizing Ghana’s Digital Transformation Agenda attracted almost 700 event attendees online across the 2 days!
