I joined CABI in August 2016 as Communications Specialist for CABI's center in Accra, Ghana. Here, I spearhead the centre's communications activities and provide requisite direction and support for various CABI projects across the region. While I work to address specific needs of various projects in the areas of development communication and publicity/ promotion, I also contribute to corporate communications goals of CABI regionally and globally.


Before joining CABI, I worked as Communications Specialist for USAID's West Africa Fertilizer Program (WAFP), implemented by the International Fertilizer Development Centre (IFDC) providing general as well as development communications direction to the project and the organization. I also worked with USAID's Agribusiness and Trade Promotion Project (USAID-ATP) as Communications and Outreach Associate, after a three-year stay experience with Ghana’s leading waste management company, Zoomlion Ghana Limited as communications Officer. In all these positions, my key roles and accomplishments focused on:



  • Communications/ PR strategy planning amd implementation

  • Community mobilization, sensitization and education events

  • Stakeholder engagement and advocacy communications

  • Content development and editing

  • Publications and promotional items (reports, factsheets, brochures, newsletters, flyers, etc.)

  • High profile event/ conference planning and management

  • Media relations

  • Social media management
