It takes one person to make the needed change...

Sometimes, even if you cannot make the big change, keep making noise about the need for change and influence little changes every chance you get.

That is the case of Benjamin Boakye the 44-year old young man we (with Kirk T. Semple) met yesterday in Accra. He is known as 'the Whistleblower Extraordinaire', Executive Director of the Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) in Ghana.

For many years now, he has single-handedly caused disruptions in the Ghana Energy and Petroleum sector exposing corruption practices and bringing the government to a sense of accountability to the people.

A good friend of mine and yesterday we jump-started a strategic partnership with Lancaster University and ACEP in capacity building and research in the sustainable energy and environment space in Ghana.

Keep making your noise!!!!

Once he was usual and now he is the boss!!!

Before now he was just my colleague and friend and Prof of Environmental Microbiology but it’s the first time I am traveling with him as ‘the boss’ - Director of Lancaster Environment Centre, one of the most reputable environmental centres in #europe.

As I fly into Accra today with Prof Kirk T. Semple I look forward to leading a high profile workshop on Lancaster University’s Stimulating Entrepreneurial Thinking in Scientist (SETS) of Differentiate Project under the British Council sponsored and ChangeSchool led Innovation for African University Program.

I asked Kirk, so do you feel different being the boss, and he said ‘I just feel tired’.

Guess what boss!! You are only two months in. Get on with it.

When you are good at what you do, being tired is part of the job 🤣🤣🤣. Just don’t be over-tired…
