For over a decade now, Role Model Africa (formerly INVENTS) have been consistent in providing various interventions on human capital development. Its flagship program, the ‘Corporate Dialogue’ has distinguished itself to regularly bring to patrons stories from African business leaders across the continent. Since the creation of the Corporate Dialogue in 2015, the platform has received mentions on GTV (Ghana), Daily Sun Newspaper (Nigeria) and Africa Rizing (An offshoot of Voice of America) to mention a few. Scheduled for Sunday 25th March 2018, the Corporate Dialogue is honored to host the Group President of Meridian Marshalls Holdings (MMH); Dr. Tetteh Nettey. Dr. Nettey who was formerly a security man at Central University will share his story in an open conversation format to young entrepreneurs, professionals and business leaders at the quarterly platform at the African Regent Hotel.
Addressing the theme ‘Winning in Business’, Dr. Tetteh Nettey will put into perspective his journey from being a security man to being a Director of a global bank. The focus of his message will aim at helping entrepreneurs and business leaders at the event to identify what modules will work best for their businesses and very importantly how they can translate their failures into mind-blowing successes.
In April 2015, his company MMH the parent company of Meridian Pre-University and Marshalls College became the first educational oriented institution in Ghana to be listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange under the Ghana Alternative Market (GAX).

He recalls the instance where after being relieved of his role as a mechanic, he applied for a job as a security man in a company, working there for over two years. He wrote his O-Level exams whiles a watchman and proceeded to apply for his A level courses.
In 1998 whiles pursuing his degree program in Human Resource Management at the Central University, Dr. Tetteh Netteh doubled as the security man (watch man), to enable him raise money for his education.
