Madam Bozoma noted that being one of the diasporans in the world has been an honour to her life.
“Currently as the CMO of Endeavor, I have a 20 years plus carrier in marketing and the cooperate world in America spending time with big companies like Apple, Uber, Pepsi and working with different type of folks but you all know one thing about me and each of the conversation I have; the way I dress, the words I use when talking to the press shows I am proudly Ghanaian,” she added.
She advised other diasporans present to continue to use every opportunity they have in the world to show case Ghana.
“It is important for those of us here now who are representing the diaspora to continue to use the diaspora in each and every single opportunity we have in the world it is not necessarily mean being on stage but it can be in conversations we have with friends, families communities because it is very important to celebrate what Ghana is and I personally do it every day,” the former Chief Branding Officer of Uber went on to add.
