Vodafone Ghana’s External Affairs and Legal Director, Gayheart Mensah is the PR Personality of the Year 2015, according to the Institute of Public Relations (IPR).
The Institute recognized the strategic and concerted approach to Public Relations that has consistently become his hallmark throughout a career that spans over 20 years.
Mr. Mensah has practised Public Relations across four different industries – the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector, Banking and Finance, Oil and Gas and Telecommunications.
His innovation and dynamism continue to position Vodafone as a thought-leader and admired brand in the telecommunication’s industry across the country.
Additionally, he is a sought-after speaker on Public Relations themes and has, in the year under reference, shared ideas on various PR topics at the Philanthropy Forum, the Annual Conference of the Chartered Institute of Marketing Ghana (CIMG) and forums of the African Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP).
Mr. Mensah has also been a regular speaker at the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) and a resource person for the IPR Accreditation Courses.
Commenting on the recognition, he stated that “It is humbling, yet inspiring to be recognized by your peers and professional community for outstanding performance. Such recognition and celebration come with a lot of consistent hard work. This award would not have been possible without the support of my colleague Directors at Vodafone, my team members of the External Affairs and Legal Department and my students in the MA courses at GIJ and other programmes”.
