Lambert Akwa

Hometown: Accra, Ghana.

Education: Middlesex University, London (BA Journalism and Publishing Studies).

Role at Djembe Communications: Senior Account Manager.

Specialties: Writing, client services, consumer PR, media relations, integrated campaigns.

Experience: Just over five years’ agency and in-house experience in public relations/communications and events management. I have worked across various sectors as lead on accounts such as MTN Ghana, Vlisco, Philips, L’Oréal West Africa, Airtel Ghana, Alldens Lane, Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme, Infinix Mobility among others. I have a number of unpublished manuscripts as well so let’s add writer to the portfolio.

I’m passionate about PR because:
I love a well told story and PR allows me to tell so many important ones.

Dream Job: Churning out books, poems and short stories from a secret island paradise.

Best Way to Unwind from PR: Binge watching my favourite shows and descending into the wormhole that is YouTube!

Memorable PR Homerun: Handling media relations in Lagos for Philips was a pretty proud moment. Looking forward to bigger and better with Djembe.

Favorite City for Business Travel: So far I have travelled to Lomé and Lagos for business. Looking forward to seeing more of the continent.

Twitter or Facebook: Twitter.

Social Media of Choice: I love Tumblr and Reddit for being really kooky and “out there”. I turn to those for fresh perspectives.

Window or Aisle: Aisle, for the view. I like to people watch for my stories.
