Accra, February 11, 2019 – International business leader and vice president of the FIFA Normalisation Committee, Lucy Quist, is set to address a global audience on current issues affecting leadership and governance in the world.
The former Airtel CEO will be addressing these issues during the 2019 McDonald-Currie Lectures organized by McGill University, Canada.
The distinguished thought leader will share solutions to challenges facing global leadership and development on the 12th of February 2019 in Canada. The McDonald-Currie Lectures is an annual event that features leaders from all over the globe who share great insights into international development, marketing and topics that address global challenges.
Lucy Quist is a renowned speaker who is leading change in the areas of leadership, business and technology. She has addressed diverse audiences on many prestigious platforms such as Mobile World Congress, Hogan Lovells African Forum and TEDx. She recently shared strong views on the current injustices and inadequacies of world leadership when she addressed the graduating 2018 MBA class at INSEAD, France.
“Despite what you may read, our world is not progressing quickly enough on critical issues of economic equity, environmental protection and the assurance of peace. It’s as though, for all our smarts, we cannot accept each other as worthy of the basics of human lives around the globe; the excess of a few sometimes comes at the expense of many. Yes, our technology is booming but we are leaving too many behind on every single continent. We do not have enough of a critical mass of decision-makers who care enough about these things” said Lucy Quist.
Lucy Quist is expected to share more insights into these global challenges and how the world can harness great leadership, empathy and good ethics to create prosperous societies globally. The lecture will be attended by the McGill University community as well as, various players and enthusiasts of international development, leadership and governance.
Lucy Quist is the CEO & founder of Quist Blue Diamond. She is the first Ghanaian woman to head a multinational telecommunications company as the former CEO of Airtel Ghana. In September 2018, FIFA appointed her Vice President of the normalization committee to restructure and transform football in Ghana.
