Re-Connect - Spend your Christmas in Ghana strengthening ties & connecting potential

When we organized our very first +Barcamp Ghana event in December 2008, we wanted to connect the many young Ghanaians who had been coming home on vacation to other young Ghanaians doing interesting things in Ghana. It's continued since, we always have a Barcamp to connect these groups of people around Christmas time, the latest of which was +Barcamp Accra 2013, which happened on December 23rd. Re-Connect has happened once in Accra and there's another happening on December 30th. The theme is Strengthening Ties, Connecting Potential. It is happening at Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel, Accra on December 30, 2013 from 18:00 to 22:00 (GMT.
Organized by Re-Connect GH, Re-Connect 2013 will be a unique networking mixer. Re-Connect GH is leveraging the number of individuals that return to Ghana for the holidays and creates an event that showcases the aspirations, innovations, and expressions of young professionals driving change and contributing to the economic growth of their local communities and the global market. As a professional networking event, the aim of Re-Connect GH is to strengthen the ties between professionals in Ghana and the Diaspora. 

Many individuals return to Ghana for the Christmas and make the traffic more unbearable but they bring more positives than negatives. They bring ice that when melted spreads more Christmas cheer. They make the various concerts and parties more enjoyable too. Traditionally, many of these individuals come home and spend time with family and friends socializing, and attending weddings. It's very important that they connect and network with young professionals and students in Ghana, learn and share. That's what Re-Connect GH is also helping solve.
