Ghanaian student attends World Business Forum in New York
Emmanuel Esem Ameh, a Walden University PhD student in Information Systems Management student from Los Angeles, California was selected to travel to New York City to attend the 2012 World Business Forum on Oct. 2 and 3.
Ameh was one of 11 doctoral and master’s students from Walden’s College of Management and Technology chosen to attend the event, where he heard global leaders in government, business and media discuss ideas and trends affecting the future of our global economy.
Walden was a sponsor of the 2012 World Business Forum and the university’s president, Dr. Cynthia G. Baum, introduced one of the renowned speakers, author and researcher Marcus Buckingham, during the event on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at Radio City Music Hall.
It was great to have all these great and renowned speakers talk to us about their life and work experiences. From Barbara Cochran, I learned it is expedient to expand your business before you are ready. In other words do not wait for circumstances in the business environment to overtake your business. Position your business ahead of success.
From Jim Collins, I learnt growing leaders are those who thirst for success for their employees and coworkers. A cohesive team is the key to great business and not individualism. To be successful, one must also blend creativity with discipline.
All in all, the 21st century presents the Internetworking of Human Intelligence Age which requires the individual to be productive with all the information available at the click of a button. This Age requires dynamism and the embracement of diversity in order to effect positive social change.
According to Jack Welsch, former CEO of General Electric, good management skills cannot be overemphasized to unearth the numerous resources the individual and our nation is endowed with. He continued to encourage new entrants into the job market to be innovative for innovation creates wealth beyond measure.
The World Business Forum is an annual event which I would encourage every business organization to participate if given the opportunity.
Ameh works at the Los Angeles Harbor College as a college professor in Computer Information Systems. As part of community activities he is part of a committee set up to establish an Information and Computer Technology (ICT) center for the University of Ghana Basic Schools at Legon, Ghana.
He is also an associate consultant with Computer Sciences Corporation in El Segundo California with a role as Programmer. His research interests include Information Systems Management, Implantable Medical Devices and Healthcare delivery services.
