Albert Mensah has been ranked one of the top 50 Motivational Speakers in the world
When summarizing his life in words, these are the words and concepts he deals with the most in life (and in his presentations): Dreams, Opportunity, Success, Change, Fear, Communication, Passion, Enthusiasm.
The strongest word and the one Albert emphasize most is OPPORTUNITY. As a person who grew up in Africa, in poverty.... Opportunity was easy for him to spot. All he had to do was watch a movie that depicted people wearing shoes, plenty to eat, cars! For Albert, Opportunity was obvious and it was everywhere. Opportunity and dreams were not things he had to struggle with. He saw it and wanted some for himself.
