Desmond Edem Eklu is a multiple award winning author, publisher, speaker and business strategy consultant. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting Education from the prestigious University of Cape Coast.
Inspired by the plight of millions of unemployed youths in Africa, Desmond whiles he was a university freshman, founded Achievers Publishing, a digital media and publishing company that feeds people with content on personal development and entrepreneurship in order to accelerate their personal and professional development — which he believes are critical in achieving success.
Moreover, in 2018 Desmond started exploring the online space for training and mentoring young people. He founded Young Achievers Network, a fast growing online community that’s committed to equipping young people with the requisite knowledge and skills that’ll make them escape unemployment, become financially stable in order to foster sustainability and economic growth.
Desmond has trained and mentored more than a thousand young people online through his frequent webinars. His book ‘Beyond The Classroom’ which explains five strategies that will help young people succeed after school, has received the award of Educational Book of the year at EDUCOM AWARDS 2019 and many other recognitions since its debut in February 2019.
With a burning passion for business growth and economic development, Desmond consults for startups in Ghana and other African countries. As a publisher who’s focused on young writers, he has helped more young people, most of whom are first timers, to write and publish their books successfully — making them profitable serial authors.
Also, Desmond heads the Literary Art Publishing Department at the Ghana Chamber of Content Producers. He’s also a volunteer writer and event strategist for The Foundation for Nation Builders where he speaks and writes on leadership thereby helping to raise the next generation of Africa’s leaders.
In the Volta Region of Ghana where he hails from, He has been engaged in a lot of community service. He’s a regular speaker in Junior High, Senior High and Tertiary institutions not only in Volta but across Ghana. As a sold out believer and church steward, Desmond leads the Youth Alive Fellowship — the youth ministry of Winners’ Chapel International, the church arm of David Oyedepo Ministries International — at his local assembly located at Akatsi.
More importantly, Desmond is passionate about rescuing the perishing into the Ark of God as it was in the days of Noah. Through divine illumination, he received an evangelistic mandate as the Noah of his generation to restore both the young and old into their original place in God, through the ark — the undiluted word of God. Since January 2019, He has been passionately operating his missionary mandate for the kingdom of God in the Volta Region of Ghana.
He is also the brand ambassador and Strategic partner at Zenfuklub.com. As a social entrepreneur, Desmond’s works have been featured in the Daily Graphic, Pulse, The Mirror, Joy News, JOY PRIME, myjoyonline.com among others.
