Dr Kofi Osei-Kusi is a philanthropist, an international keynote speaker, and an author who has dedicated his life to youth development.
He was the winner of the Foundation Philanthropist of the Year 2017 award at the National Philanthropy Awards; the winner of the prestigious SME Ghana High Impact Personality Award in 2016; the winner of the African Youth Special Recognitions Award in 2016, and was voted by the Young Professionals and Youth Coalition of Ghana (YPYC) in 2015 as the Young Professional Role Model in youth development and empowerment. For two consecutive years, he has been shortlisted as one of 30 Heroes of Change by the MTN Ghana Foundation.
He serves as Executive President of the Osei-Kusi Foundation, which is an award-winning foundation providing mentoring, coaching, scholarships, leadership and rural outreaches to support the youth population. He is the Managing Consultant of OKF Consult and the Chancellor of GH Media School.
He has a spontaneous gift and flair with young people, which together create an unforgettable experience for his audience, all of whom he encourages to rise to their full potential.

His proprietary team-building technique—which notably has been used by a number of firms—is fast becoming the tool of choice for corporate bodies that seek to gel their teams in mind of achieving peak performance.
