Why you should listen to his talk?
Many people see morning radio shows in Ghana as noisy platforms for political bickering and score settling, but having hosted the Citi Breakfast Show for a decade, I have come to understand the latent power of Radio for creating a better society, by demanding more accountable leadership and more responsible citizenship.
My ideas about the power of conversations and questions will show you simple ways in which asking the right questions- relentlessly would lead to positive change, not only in society or for hearers, but also for you, the questioner.
Quote from Bernardino: Our willingness to ask the right questions is often more important than our ability to answer them.
