Boss Move: Anita Erskine will be Trent University‘s CEO-in-Residence for 2023.

*Drum roll* Excitement rolls in for Ghanaian broadcaster, professional compère, talk show host, actress and girls’ education advocate, Anita Erskine as she’s been tapped by Canadian-based Trent University as their 2023 CEO-in-Residence.

Erskine, a Trent Alumna graduated from the University in ’99 is well respected in the media and business industry for her fortitude, wit, insight and creative talent.

In a blog post on the school’s website, the Trent School of Business named the Mogulette as their 2023 CEO-in-Residence.

“Since 2012, Erskine has been host and executive producer of Making of a Mogul, focusing on African entrepreneurship. Since 2015, Erskine has also been host and executive producer of Sheroes Of Our Time, a television talk show that showcases and celebrates strong and unique women. Sheroes is currently enjoyed by more than 15 million viewers across Africa, Europe and North America,” a portion of the statement read.

According to Trent University, the CEO-in-Residence program, coordinated through the School of Business and the student-alumni mentorship program Life After Trent, gives students at both the Peterborough and Durham Greater Toronto Area campuses access and opportunities to learn from business leaders across the country and around the globe.

It went on to add that “the CEO-in-Residence inspires and mentors Business students through keynote addresses, meetups, lectures and panel discussions.”

Sharing the exciting news on her social media feed, the mediaprenuer said she was glad she could finally announce the news to her audience and called it a ‘full circle moment’.

“Some #Soulfood this Monday? I’m so glad I can finally announce this! I will be @trentuniversity‘S 2023 CEO-in-Residence….an IMMEASURABLY humbling opportunity! A real full-circle moment!
