Mr. Frimpong’s 28 years span of career has taught him these three (3) lessons:

  1. Failure is part and parcel of life, and one has to learn from it and move on positively.
  2. That application of knowledge with integrity is honourable, and then
  3. Transferring of knowledge and sharing into other people’s knowledge and expertise makes one relevant to situations and to his/her environment.
