Alexandra Antwi-Boasiako

Moderator

Alexandra Antwi-Boasiako is a linguistic talent. And that doesn’t just mean her multilingualism, but above all her ability to switch effortlessly between different codes, registers, and languages. Born in Hamburg to Ghanaian parents, she obtained her Masters at the University of Warwick in Creative & Media Enterprises in the UK and speaks fluent French and Spanish as well as German, English and Twi. She currently lives and works in London, Berlin and Hamburg.

As a moderator, she has been hosting a wide variety of events for several years and leads through congresses and conferences in a confident, charming, and humorous manner. She is characterized above all by her rhetorical skills, talent for improvisation and versatility.

Her presentations are audience-oriented and create authentic encounters. Her focus is on current and future-oriented social topics in addition to the moderation of different literary formats. She also leads workshops on topics such as empowerment in the context of self-effective language in the world of work or resilience with a great deal of empathy and sensitivity.

Alexandra Antwi-Boasiako feels just as much at home on international stages as she does on local ones. In 2022, she hosted the Aké Arts and Book Festival in Nigeria, the most important literature festival on the African continent. In the fall of the same year, she moderated the 1st Afro-German Start-Up Pitch AiDiA, demonstrating her passion for ideas, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Topics

Empowerment in the context of self-efficacious communication, financial education, transformation and multidisciplinary and perspective-based design approaches, education/equal opportunities, diversity-sensitive language mediation & interpreting in early childhood education, reciprocity of systems and perspectives
