About Dzifa Abodakpi

Dzifa was the first Ghanaian Country Head of Inlaks Ghana and the youngest to attain the role in the history of the company. She contributed to the remarkable revenue growth through client acquisition in universal banking, microfinance, infrastructure and enterprise solutions.

She played a core role in the computerization and integration of rural community banks (RCBs) in Ghana under the MiDA project which was sponsored through the Millennium Compact Agreement (MCA) of the US Government.

During the awards a citation presented to her read, in part: “Having overseen the sales and strategy functions at Global Solutions Ghana, now Inlaks Limited, your skills in negotiation, presentations and complex sales management with regard to computer hardware and software have proved second to none. These skills, indeed, have been crucial to the success the company has had in expanding sales and market share to an increasingly astute and affluent clientele base. Indeed your sales and marketing strategies have proved invaluable in these regards and are a testimony to your exemplary professionalism.”

Speaking to the media after the event, Ms. Abodakpi said the honour has challenged her to do more, adding, “my advice is to learn as much as you can from anyone. One of the things that really helped me was my apprenticeship. I got the opportunity to be mentored on this job and it helped maximize my potential. To all the women out there, you need a mentor. Just be humble and learn and once can be a good student, eventually you’d become great”.
Miss Abodakpi joined IBM in 2018 as the Territory Sales Lead responsible for revenue growth and client advocacy of their Enterprise Financial Services Market/
