About Road Map Ghana

When was the last time you went to a conference and left feeling truly inspired, truly connected and firing on all cylinders? Well if it’s been a while, then the Star 100 Tenth Anniversary Conference, Road Map Ghana, is for you.

- Thought Leaders: individuals that have defined ideas and strategies for Ghana’s future development, in key sectors, will share their road maps for Ghana
- Change Makers: Ghana-focused individuals making a difference in their chosen field of endeavour will share their personal road maps

- Engage with leading Ghanaian entrepreneurs
- Learn what it is really like to move from the Diaspora to Ghana from those that have done it
- Understand Ghana’s key areas of development and the opportunities they present for you
- Discover practical ways to contribute to Ghana’s development without leaving the Diaspora

In addition to inspiring talks, fireside chats, panel sessions and workshops, you will engage with our speakers, be able to pick their brains, immerse yourself in the agenda topics and get to meet like-minded delegates who are passionate about moving Ghana forward. A truly engaging experience!

Tickets are on sale now, but they are limited. There are only 70 early bird tickets available for just £45 up until 8th October, so get in soon to secure your spot. After that tickets are £65. The price includes a lunch and beverages.

Our Speakers

We have 13 great speakers already confirmed and more to come. We have secured some of Ghana’s leading thinkers but also doers, many of who don’t normally speak at conferences. But that’s not all; you can meet, mingle and exchange ideas with them, and feel inspired to create your own road map to help shape Ghana’s future!
