In the words of the great philosopher- Plato; “Beginnings frame everything that comes after them. With careful planning and a deliberate approach, your beginning can set everything that comes after it up for success”. This philosophy also drives the board, management, and staff of Whyte Cleon Limited as the organization breaks into new frontiers in Ghana.
This historical, ground-breaking event with the Ghanaian corporates took place on the morning of Tuesday, May 25th, 2021 at the Marriott Hotel, Accra, Ghana.
The event commenced with a welcome address by the Chairman of the board of directors – Mr Bismarck Rewane, who called in virtually to welcome everyone to the first Whyte Cleon breakfast and introductory presentation. Mr. Rewane, spoke eloquently about the need for continuous and developmental trade agreements between African nations, which he said is the true African answer to Africa becoming a force to recon with globally.
Riding on the back of Mr Rewane’s opening speech, the MD/CEO- of Whyte Cleon Limited, Mrs ‘Nireti Oyeniyi-Adebayo, spoke further on the Ghanaian venture and the reason for the company’s strategic entry into the Ghana economy.
Why Ghana? One may ask:
Communication history – Both countries are anglophone countries.
Trade between Nigeria and Ghana has continued to grow over the years and is bigger than trade between Nigeria and other African countries, therefore any company willing to expand into Africa will think first about Ghana.
Ghana is welcoming, its people are friendly and warm and my STANFORD EXPERIENCE (2016), has given me new friends in the country, who I now see as family.
Nigerians here have great things to say about this country, we believe in the relationship, the business environment is attractive, improving on a sustainable basis that promotes ease of doing business and these are some of the many reasons why Whyte Cleon is in Ghana today.
She concluded with this: ‘Now that we are here, we can seek opportunities to work together. We would like to assure everyone, that we pay close attention to our business and to the people we outsource to organizations because we believe people matter, what they do matter, and how it is done matters to us.
Officially introducing Whyte Cleon Limited to the corporates, Ms. Linda Ampah with visible enthusiasm, reeled out the decade long company profile of Whyte Cleon, which was quickly followed by the airing of the documentary showing the 10 years journey of Whyte Cleon Limited in Nigeria.
Thereafter, the delectable Country Manager, Whyte Cleon Limited (Ghana), Monica Adukpo was introduced. Showing her readiness for business, she promised to quickly reach out to the corporates and hopes they would all have their doors open for her, readily taking advantage of the Quality Management Systems that Whyte Cleon offer to make their businesses more efficient and more profitable.
