Ecobank Ghana partnered with the international youth empowerment summit (IYES) as the the headline sponsors for the 2022 edition.
The international youth empowerment summit (IYES) led by Pastor Brain Amoateng was a huge success as 5000 plus youths thronged the UPSA auditorium over the 3 days the program was in session.
The impact from the cherry-picked speakers were enormous as participants including the elite, vulnerable, and those from the hard-to-reach areas were equipped with best practices, experience and mentoring from diverse religious leaders, entrepreneurs, influencers and others from the corporate setting.
IYES led by the convenor Pastor Brain Amoateng has grown leaps and bounds as this year brought together some of the worlds renowned speakers across the globe: Rev Eastwood Anaba, Dr. Paul Enenche, H.E Anne Sophie, Hon. Sam George, Frank Ofosu -Appiah, Lawyer Sosu, Sammy Awuku, Prophet Odoru, Dentaa Amoateng Jim Iyke, Mr Paul Kofi Mante among others.
The success of the 2022 edition was made possible due to the huge support Ecobank Ghana the headline sponsors threw behind the initiative.
The commitment of Ecobank Ghana to engage the youth of Ghana at all levels, empower them and re-tool them for the future has been reiterated with this partnership.
As headline sponsors, Ecobank introduced a creative initiative which was the Ecobank app. This app allowed patrons not to only do transactions remotely with ease but to also purchase books from authors (speakers), buy food from vendors and the amazing part of it was the 50% discount provided by the bank.
