About Me

I am the first of six children from one father and two mothers. We all have now being successfully educated to the masters level and two siblings have successfully qualified to be accountants. I currently possess an MBA in human resource management after completing a postgraduate diploma in management information systems aside various certificates and diplomas in knowledge and Intellectual Property management.

Working with my father who is a chartered accountant, since 2001, made me recognize the need for businesses (especially small and medium) to use technology to manage finances and especially inventory effectively with the help of modern easily accessible technological tools. Several companies loose cash and/or stolen inventory due to manual and traditional practices of bookkeeping. In view of this, and with direction from Chartered Accountants like E. V. Asare & Co, E. T. Ackonor and Bijos Consult (all financial and management consultancies in Ghana), I established the Firstview Consult which is an IT and Management Consultancy in Accra, Ghana.

Ghana is fast applying technology in all areas however users still lack the knowledge and ability to use these tools to enhance businesses. I will love my children to be code expects whichever career area they chose. I currently have two boys and one girl. The first boy wants to be a Pastor and the second a Business Executive. The girl has always want to be a Surgeon or Doctor.

I love surfing the Internet, reading and networking during my pastimes.

My Business

The company is mainly made up of various accomplished consultants working on part time basis (currently almost like volunteer basis) in their respective fields. Our target clientele are small/medium/large scale private entreprises. Our broad major category for initial marketing is educational and religious institutions across the country.
