The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MTN Ghana Mr. Selorm Adadevoh, has advised the youth to be conscious about the digital revolution by preparing to meet the numerous opportunities it has come to offer.
According to him, the youth are exposed to several opportunities daily but only a few see them. If we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.
Mr. Selorm Adadevoh, made this salient remark during the Global Convocation of the 2019 Springboard Road Show held in Accra.
Mr Adadevoh, speaking on life improvement: He noted that life was about opportunity versus Opportunism, explaining that opportunity was what was available to someone and opportunism was how one took advantage of the opportunity to achieve something positive.
“Nothing in life happens by chance and the more you prepare and chase your dreams, the more your reach your destiny.
“Too often, we just don’t want it enough. If we want it enough, we shouldn’t lose belief,” he said.
Using his life as an example, the CEO said he believed in values such as respect, integrity and humility as they were key components to raise people higher.
However, he entreated the youth to always explore the digital space in order to remain relevant in the future of work.
The Executive Director of the Springboard Road Show Foundation, Mrs Comfort Ocran, commended MTN Ghana for being the major sponsor of the Annual Show over the years.
She also entreated the participants to be determined to make their lives better not just for personal gains, but in order to provide solutions to societal problems.
The MTN Ghana Foundation has for the past 11 years been a solid backbone to Legacy and Legacy’s Springboard Roadshow and this underscores their resolve to improving education.
