The eighth edition of the annual Springboard Road Show is expected to empower 30,000 tertiary students and young executives with
and business coaching. The six-week long nationwide tour is expected to start from Bolgatanga on 1st February and climax in Cape Coast on 15th March, 2014.
In a press release to mark the 100-day countdown, Mrs. Comfort Ocran, Executive Director of the Springboard Road Show Foundation, stressed that Springboard 2014, which would be under the theme,
would focus on three thematic areas, namely Entrepreneurship, Career and Finance.
The Springboard Road Show is the brainchild of motivational speakers and authors, Albert and Comfort Ocran. Since it's inception in January 2007, it has grown to become the nation's biggest and most comprehensive motivational and career development tour traveling nationwide every year.
Springboard brings accomplished business leaders and resource persons in touch with the emerging generation of leaders and entrepreneurs in a mentoring experience. According to Mrs. Ocran, the 2014 edition is being repackaged like a "mobile university" to bring participants practical career development knowledge that they cannot get in the regular classroom. As a special feature, exceptional participants with high potential would be identified and placed in internships in partner companies to facilitate their rapid development.
She stressed that apart from the 30,000 young executives and tertiary students who would be attending the event nationwide, organizers would also work with technology partners and corporate sponsors to bring the experience to millions across the world through live streaming, audio conferencing and other technology platforms.
With over 100,000 alumni, a number of whom now occupy influential positions in the business and corporate world, the Springboard Road Show will continue to provide an effective platform for empowering the nation's youth and helping to eradicate unemployment.
