T.D. Jakes, Isha Sesay coming to Accra for first ever Master Class in Africa

For the first time ever in Africa, renowned entrepreneur and coach to global leaders, T.D. Jakes will be leading a session of his world-famous Master Class. For a limited time only, tickets for this historic event have been reduced 50% to GHs500 or $100.

With a focus on leadership, the event is being organized as part of the Africa Business and Kingdom Leadership Summit (ABKLS). Bishop Jakes will be joined by international journalist and former CNN anchor, Isha Sesay, as they discuss strategies to lead through both positive and challenging times.

ABKLS was founded in 2017 by Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams of Action Chapel International and his wife Rosa Whitaker, former Assistant U.S. Trade Representative to Africa and current CEO and President of the Whitaker Group, as a platform to convene Africa’s business, faith and policy leaders. The aim of the Summit was to drive conversations around innovative strategies and ground-breaking ideas with a focus on leadership development in order to drive Africa’s growth.

Per Archbishop Duncan-Williams, “When the business community and private sector of any country is doing remarkably well, the economy of that country is significantly boosted. Therefore, it is necessary to awaken the consciousness of the business community in our own country.”

In addition to the hosts, Archbishop Duncan-Williams and Rosa Whitaker, T.D. Jakes and Isha Sesay will also be joined by speakers Randy Abbey of “Good Morning Ghana”, Joel Nettey of the Ninani Group and President-elect of the International Advertising Association, Gail Whitaker, President of Dominion Theological Seminary, and Lisa Summerour, Executive Leadership Coach and former Hollywood actress.

The first edition of ABKLS, convened in September of 2017, brought together over one thousand fifteen hundred global leaders, entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs for an unprecedented three-day program that fostered innovation, strategic solutions and corporate/clergy connections across Africa.

The Master Class event this year will take place on the 16th of March, 2019. It will be held at the Kingdom Conference Centre which is on the campus of Action Chapel International, Spintex Road, Accra. Set to begin with a breakfast at 8:30 am and it will continue with intermittent breaks, including a catered lunch, until 4:30 pm.

Tickets for this event are selling at GHs500 or $100 till March 6. After that, ticket prices will return to their original level of GHs1000 or $200; and after March 10th will become GHs1200 and $250.

In addition to the Master Class, a Youth Summit geared towards the younger generation will also take place on the same March 16th.
