WHO WE ARE
Business Executive Limited (BEL) is a firm of specialized publishers and special event organizers. Consequently, apart from our registration with the Registrar General’s Department, we are also registered with the National Media Commission as publishers. Our principal offices are located in Accra, Ghana.
Our flagship activity is the publishing of a monthly magazine entitled The Business Executive. This is a specialized publication covering the economy, business, and finance and development issues. It has been published consistently since 2011.
The magazine is published in full colour on glossy art paper to ensure that the longevity of its shelf life extends well beyond its one month publication tenor
Written by some of the most skilled and experienced financial journalists in Ghana and Nigeria, the magazine is circulated in both of those countries, where it has developed a strong reputation as a leading provider of relevant, accurate, insightful and timely information and analyses on economic activities in both countries. Consequently it is read by senior public sector officials, corporate decision-makers, entrepreneurs, professionals, the commercial class, venture capitalists, portfolio investors, the intelligentsia and locally resident expatriates in both countries.
Our flagship magazine is circulated and read in both Ghana and Nigeria, since our editorial coverage encompasses business, financial and developmental activities in both countries. We have achieved a monthly print run of 30,000 copies, roughly equally divided between the two counties in terms of circulation. However all pre-production and actual printing is done in Ghana.
Following the strong brand reputation achieved by our magazine, we have since diversified into the organizing of special, business sector-related events as well. Our Special Events Division has been established to organize awards for business and professional excellence, conferences, workshops and seminars, and other business elated events as conceived by us or our consultants.
To this end we have already convened and hosted the inaugural edition of the BUSINESS EXECUTIVE EXCELLENCE AWARDS in 2014. This is now an annual event. We have several other events – awards programmes and conferences/summits inclusive – in the pipeline.
In organizing our Special Events we seek to forge strategic alliances/partnerships with proven experts in whichever fields of endeavor we are addressing and with professional associations, bodies or other groupings as are relevant. Our special events tend to be business related and increasingly are geared towards functions that are international with regards to participation, focusing mainly on promoting co-operation and partnerships across the West African sub-region.
However we also are geared towards organizing events and programmes that promote and propel the development agenda of Ghana and other countries in the West African sub-region.
