Global Impact Award for Community Building
Oscar Bimpong is called the Mindset Revolutionist. His passion and drive are to change the mindset of Africans and those in the diaspora especially the youth. Last Wednesday, he was awarded the Global Impact Award for community building organised by the Global African Awards in partnership with Brand South Africa held in South Africa. This is due to his work with the youth of Africa and the Diaspora and for changing the narrative on the continent via transformational speaking and his mindset revolution agenda.

In 2017, BBC was looking to train twenty (20) people doing community radio in the UK and he was selected to be part of it. He was a presenter at Star Radio UK with the program titled the footprints. The selection process was based on the contribution and the impact the radio program has made on the people in your community. The program was selected based on the fact that we offered monthly free seminars to people in our community to help inspire and instill knowledge in respect to any vision they had. We helped SMEs in the community by consulting from business start-up to business development and to strategically position the business in the marketplace. We also had mentoring sessions for young people. All these were part of the corporate social responsibility of Train2inspire Consultancy.

Some people say the sky is the limit, but Oscar says the sky is the stepping stone to greater heights. There is no limitation to what anyone can achieve. You just have to believe in yourself and work hard as if today is the only opportunity you have to pursue your vision. His book, Mindset Revolution – Re-engineering your mind from Prison to Purpose is designed to break any limitation on your mind. Work on your mind before you work on your vision. A powerful mind can walk through walls, but a weak mind will always succumb to challenges. Be the best that you can be and always work to be a better version of yourself consistently.
The hashtag of Oscar is, it’s possible if only you believe. That is the fundamental principle of success. You can only succeed if you believe. Go out there and make a difference to make Africa a better place for all of us.
