Jeremiah is a 29-year old entrepreneur, motivational speaker, author, corporate trainer, consultant, educator, and editor.

He has a track record of over 700 speaking engagements, over 100 radio and TV interviews and hosting over 100 seminars and conferences across at least 9 regions of Ghana, sharing the stage with some of Ghana’s most illustrious figures.
Speaking to students of Heritage Christian (University) College in Amasaman, Accra, the CEO of Buabeng Communications said he had a rough start in life but that ignited the passion in him to inspire others to achieve their dreams. Jeremiah spoke about how he began living his dream as a young person struggling to succeed in life: “I started exploring my passion by speaking to my colleagues at Accra Academy. I would write a quote on the board and then apply it to life. I later wrote to some schools and churches to speak to the youth–many of them just told me I would hear from them; and they never got back. But I said to myself, ‘if people won’t give me the platform, I needed to create one for myself.’ I began making impact and could pull hundreds of the youth to my conferences…I read a lot of books and learnt so much from books….There is a difference between schooling and education. I went to school but I didn’t just learn to pass exams; I learnt skills to add to the knowledge in order to succeed in life. I also took a mentor to help put me on track along the way.”
Jeremiah has trained companies ranging from SMEs to multi-nationals in the areas of corporate presentation, customer service, workplace productivity and many more. He is the host of the annual Accra Youth Summit which convenes hundreds of young people together to be inspired by more accomplished young people from various fabrics of society.
Jeremiah is the founder and CEO of Buabeng Communications, a mass communications and corporate training firm. He is also the author of many best-selling books including Take Off, Constructing the Future, Game Changer, Giant Leap, Personal Branding, The Power of Mentorship and Wisdom Farm.
