“I wanted to express my personal thanks to you for your efforts in making The Coca-Cola Company's sponsorship of President Rawling's State dinner a tremendous success. The event was spectacular and ranks as one of the best that I have participated in, and I have been involved in activities such as this for over 25 years. My staff has reported to me that you made extraordinary efforts in ensuring that our participation in the dinner was a successful.

“I wish to convey my deepest gratitude and appreciation to you for your commitment, your dedication and your willingness to make every effort to deliver a successful UNCTAD XII. I also greatly appreciated your constant presence and resolute effort to personally ensure that- every detail relating to the Conference was implemented…I must tell you, in all sincerity, that of all the UNCTAD conferences I have attended, UNCTAD XII was by far, both the most challenging and rewarding. It only remains for me to say that I greatly valued working with you at such a crucial moment in UNCTAD's history.”

Jo Elizabeth Butler

Former Secretary - Trade & Development Board; Head - Intergovernmental Affairs & Outreach Service (UNCTAD)

“To say that we could not have pulled off the ASAA conference without you would be an understatement. We will not be able to find the words to adequately say thank you - but know that everyone from the Planning Committee and the team of volunteers, and the ASAA membership, had only positive things to say about the conference management. We may have to carry you to the next venue site as well. Please accept our warmest appreciation to you and your behind-the-scenes team!”

“I wanted to extend my thanks to you for your incredible work in organizing the ACASA Triennial this month in Legon. As an attendee and presenter, I can say that not only was the execution of the complex logistics—from handling visa requests to tech support in the conference rooms— unparalleled in my experience, but the small details, such as the exceptional food and transit service made this the most enjoyable conference I have attended anywhere…Thank you for making our time in Ghana so memorable, and or triennial meeting so successful. I look forward to visiting again sometime soon…”

Assistant Professor of Art History - Maryland Institute College of Art

“From the letter it is evident that the merit is all yours and your team’s! I think most of our members conveyed the sentiment that this was an amazingly well-organized conference and all went home very happy. I had a couple of people suggest that we should just do out conference in Ghana every six years… so you never know, you may just have to work with us again sooner or later!”

Silvia Forni, Ph.D.

Curator - African Arts and Cultures & Former President - ACASA

“I want to add my voice to your commendation of Akunu and the local organising committee. This was indeed the coalition of the willing. You came through magnificently and made the IAS look good, and I am in your debt, and inspired by your example… Without what you put in, it would not have been possible...Akunu and his team as usual put in the extra mile to make it an A occasion. Thank you, Akunu for your consistent commitment to IAS.”
