“Women should work smarter,” says Tucci Ivowi, addressing Hollard Women



The CEO and Founding Member of the Ghana Commodity Exchange, Tucci Ivowi, has charged female staff of the insurance group Hollard Ghana to stay focused to accomplish higher strides.

  1. “Don’t focus on the ladder, or you are likely to fall. Focus on achieving results, and that will elevate you”.
  2. “Don’t let yourself down and blame others for not letting you reach your potential. Failure allows you to grow; embrace it”.
  3. “Do not take an opportunity and squander it. This act affects women; do not let your gender down”.
