GLORIA BUCKMAN YANKSON: FROM DREAMS TO SUCCESS

My crush of the month is definitely this young and dynamic woman who believes in God and in chocolate. Yes, Gloria is inspirational. Addicted to her instinct, she decided to quit a comfortable and well-paid job in Scotland, to create an event production agency in Ghana. Craziness? No! Foresight. Let’s Meet her!

What did you have in mind when you decided to create PlanItGhana and how did you manage the transition between the UK and Ghana?

PlanIt Ghana is a full service Event Production & Brand Communications firm. The name PlanIt is essentially at the core of what we do – which is “planning it”. At PlanIt Ghana, we believe that every successful Event or Brand Communications Plan needs someone to carefully Plan It. My husband and I first started thinking and talking about PlanIt Ghana in 2006 whilst we were both still working and living in Scotland. We’re both Public Relations Professionals and very passionate about Event Strategy & Brand / Marketing Communications. I was working on the Marketing Communications Team at Morgan Stanley then, and although I absolutely loved it there at the time, every day for a couple of months all we talked about was how we were going to set up our own Event Planning & Brand Communications Firm one day.
