The chairperson of Unitel, Isabel Dos Santos, has been using her position at Unitel to assist the country of Angola. This help has benefited the Angolan country, as well as the world. Unitel’s efforts, coupled with the personal effects of its leader, Dos Santos, reveal a great story of an improving economy for Angola and Africa. Isabel dos Santos is an entrepreneur who has worked at numerous jobs spanning multiple industries. She added a different set of skills at each of these jobs. These skills have prepared her for the experiences that have followed.
All of these seemingly “random” jobs helped make Isabel Dos Santos the businessperson and entrepreneur that she is today. Also contributing to her skill set is a formal education background that spans several different schools. She brought a skill set to Unitel, which speaks to the need for the country of Africa to complete globally with increased technological knowledge and capacity (Isabeldossantos).
With Isabel Dos Santos leading Unitel, there have been jobs created in the telecommunications industry. She has communicated a personal commitment to affect not only Unitel, but also the world around it. That commitment is reflected in her encouragement of entrepreneurs throughout Angola. Isabel promotes entrepreneurship and other’s work, she is also an accomplished speaker, and a very busy one. In her speeches, she often focuses on the concept of equality between the sexes. She does not believe that men and women receive equal opportunities to succeed in business. Dos Santos also believes that the ability of Africa to prosper is linked to its ability to communicate.
Dos Santos also believes in steady progress in the direction of one’s goals. She promotes new entrepreneurs growth breaking a goal into components. This way, people and/or companies can see and measure progress toward that goal. She also believes, however, there is still much to do to improve Africa’s economy and the plight of its people. She seems to have promoted a synergy among Angola’s citizenry towards the improvement of a mediocre economy.
