Author of the Month: Petra Asamoah

A great book is always a good reason for people to gather and that is why we are so excited about our author of the month for May. On Wednesday 25th May 2022 at the Goethe-Institut in Accra, our guest author Petra Asamoah will discuss her book, Jungle Dance. The hour-long session of readings and conversation will start at 7 PM.

Petra Asamoah is a prolific writer, public speaker and trainer. Jungle Dance is her second publication in which she reflects over her fifteen years of experience in the corporate world through the story of two women and how they navigate life, love, corporate politics and their own internal struggles.

Petra started writing poems and short stories from an early age. As an undergraduate student at the University of Ghana she shared some of her work on Radio Univers, a platform she credits with giving life to her talent. She published her first book in 2017, Sales 101: What Everyone Should Know About Sales. She considers it her contribution to the Marketing profession as she has spent most of her professional career as a Marketing Practitioner, holding senior management positions in the airline industry, media and textile manufacturing.

Petra is a Chartered Marketer by profession and a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Ghana. She holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Marketing from the Chartered Institute of Marketing, UK, an MPhil (Marketing) from the University of Ghana Business School and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science also from the University of Ghana. She teaches Marketing on a part time basis and has taught at Simon Page College of Marketing and Ashesi University.

We look forward to having you join us in person. You can also join us online and share in the experience.
