BarCamp Cape Coast 2014 is a free networking forum happening on September
13, 2014 at the University Of Cape Coast - Faculty of Education Lecture
Theatre 9. The theme is "Enhancing development through Corporate and
Personal Branding". This event will be the 4th BarCamp Cape Coast organized
by the GhanaThink Foundation <http://www.ghanathink.org/> as it builds a
network of young change makers, doers and entrepreneurs in Ghana.
BarCamp Cape Coast 2014 will showcase how Corporate and Personal Branding
would enhance the total development of the youth. There will be a focus on
channeling the present energies around social media into positive
developments and progress for Cape Coast and surrounding areas as well.
This Barcamp will feature multiple user-generated breakout sessions about
business, branding, social entrepreneurship, technology and development,
alongside topics relevant to the Central Region and beyond. There would
also be the popular speed mentoring sessions where mentors will give
insights and answers to questions from attendees. We'd cap off the day with
Come network, learn and share with some of the brightest and best youth in
Ghana. It's a free event with free breakfast and lunch from 9am to
today at http://barcampcapecoast14.eventbrite.com/.
You can also register by sending "Barcamp Cape Coast + Your Name + Your
Email Address" to 1945 on all networks.
