The Executive Director of Bentil Consulting Limited, Lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School and the Ashesi University College has been admitted to the Africa Leadership Initiative.
Africa Leadership Initiative (ALI), modeled after the highly successful Henry Crown Fellowship Program of the Aspen Institute (a global forum for leveraging the power of leaders to improve human condition), seeks to develop the next generation of community-spirited leaders of Africa, beginning in Ghana, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique and South Africa.
ALI aims to develop motivated and responsible young leaders across Africa who are capable of guiding their countries as they struggle to align the demands of globalization with local visions of “a good society.”
Fellows admitted into the ALI are nominated by recognized local business and community leaders; and they are men and women who:
Have achieved significant success in their fields of endeavor;
- Have demonstrated their potential for leadership at the highest levels of corporate, government or civic responsibility;
- Possess a breadth of experience and level of maturity that will enable them to contribute effectively to fellowship experience; and
- Come from diverse backgrounds in terms of occupation, ethnicity and gender.
Fellows participate in a program comprising seminars and leadership development activities under the guidance of skilled Aspen Institute moderators.
The first seminar on the challenge of leadership was held in Nigeria from 2nd to 6th June 2008. The next will be in Aspen Colorado later in the year
