Dr. Vikram Mansharamani, a global equity investor has said although the economic challenges that Ghanaian businesses are currently facing may be daunting, with the right strategy, companies can turn things around.
“If business leaders will equip themselves with the relevant tools and constantly update their strategies to meet the needs of ever-demanding trends, their organizations will remain profitable and globally sustainable.”
He stated that “disruptions and uncertainty are often a source of new opportunities. Volatility, currency devaluation, falling confidence and other characteristics are perfect for taking new opportunities. It will require a planning process that models scenarios and acts accordingly.”
Dr. Mansharamani who also a lecturer at Yale University made these remarks during a brief interaction with the press on his arrival in Accra on Tuesday.
