DANIEL OSEI TUFFUOR
Founder and Executive Director, Excellent Leadership Group (ExLA Group)
Daniel Osei Tuffuor is the Executive Director of the Excellent Leadership Group (ExLA Group) and a member of the Board of Directors. As leader of the organisation, he bears the vision of the organisation and is credited as the chief strategist, directing and shaping the agenda for major programmes and projects for the organisation’s growth and development.
While exercising oversight responsibility for all activities within the various directorates under ExLA Group, he also acts as the face of the organisation by advocating its position on various national and global issues and resolve for progressive Pan-Africanism which thrives on good leadership.
Daniel Osei Tuffuor is recognised as one of Africa’s emerging young social entrepreneurs. He founded the Excellent Leadership Group (ExLA Group), one of Africa’s leading operational and advocacy Non-Governmental Organisations, in January 2011 when he was a third year student at the University of Ghana, Legon. The main focus of the organisation is to promote good leadership across the continent through trainings and leadership and empowerment conferences in the area of business, governance, research and social development.
Over the years, ExLA Group has evolved and has trained and mentored thousands of young graduates, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, professionals and students through its training programmes and leadership conferences. It also runs a cutting edge corporate training programme for the human resource departments of organisations. It has also honoured a number of diligent Ghanaians in their various fields of endeavour through its distinguished multidimensional Excellence Leadership Awards (ExLA Awards).
Daniel and the ExLA Group are currently working on a comprehensive agricultural project as one of the objectives of the organisation. This project has a three pronged approach in boosting Ghana’s Agricultural economy and they are; 1. Agricultural advocacy, research and training for farmers, 2. Large scale/ commercial farming, 3. Marketing and sale of Agricultural products through a modernized trade platform.
His recent advocacy work is designed towards the empowerment of African women for leadership roles which he believes will be realised through the Young African Women Congress (YAWC); an annual congregation of young women across the continent, organised under the umbrella of the ExLA Group Gender Programme, an entity of the ExLA Group. This initiative has won the recognition and support of UN Women and the Women, Gender and Development Directorate (WGDD) of the African Union Commission (AUC). ExLA Group was recently invited by the WGDD of AUC to participate in the 3rd AU High Level Panel on Gender Equality & Women’s Empowerment in Kigali, Rwanda in July 2016. Daniel was later commissioned by the WGDD of AUC to make inputs in the concept paper for the WGDD of the AUC summit in January 2017.
A Pan-Africanist at heart, Daniel inspires his generation by means of articles and advocacy on various media platforms in Ghana and beyond. He was recently interviewed by the BBC World News on why he thinks the statue of “racist” Mahatma Gandhi must be removed from the University of Ghana campus (A petition started by some Professors of the University).
He is a regular panellist for the Institute of Economic Affairs-Ghana’s, (IEA) roundtable discussions and active participant for their Presidential Debate programme.
Daniel Osei Tuffuor enjoys moderating programmes and coaching young people. His dream, as he puts it, is “not to live forever but to build a brand that will last forever”.
