Laweh University to host 2024 ‘African Business Linkage’ in Turkey

Laweh University College, the first accredited Open University in Ghana and the second in West Africa, will host a 5-day training program titled ‘African Linkage Business: Executive Leadership Workshop and Trade Mission,’ in Turkey from May 20 – 25.

It will be Laweh’s second training program this year, after the institution held a similar event in Spain, in March. In a statement from the university to, the executive training program is designed for senior-level executives, including Chief Executive Officers, directors, department heads, and senior managers.

It is also suitable for leaders responsible for driving organizational change initiatives and those seeking to enhance their skills in navigating office politics. The program according to the institution is applicable across industries and sectors and can be customized to address specific organizational contexts and challenges.

“The training program seeks to empower executives to lead their organizations confidently through periods of change, transforming challenges into opportunities for growth and innovation,” said Laweh University to, the program’s media partner. 

The event’s main partner is the Federation of West African Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FEWACCI) created in 1976 by the presidents of the 15 National Chambers of Commerce and Industry of West Africa. It began to operate as a hub of trade and investment in West Africa when the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) was created in 1975.

FEWACCI holds an Observer Status at ECOWAS Statutory Meetings. Its partnership in Laweh’s training program serves as a benefit that will promote a public-private dialogue, as well as actions, decisions and executive trainings that will contribute an economic integration for West African organisations. 


The event’s organisers believe the 4-module executive training program is relevant because organisations are constantly facing the need to adapt and evolve. Technological advancements, market disruptions, and changing customer expectations are requiring leaders who can effectively navigate the complexities of change.

“Change leadership entails more than just implementing new processes or technologies. It requires a deep understanding of human behavior, effective communication strategies, and the ability to align individuals and teams towards a shared vision,” said Laweh University.
