Meet The Team
Redwood Universal was founded by David and Carmen Bruce-Annan, inspired by their experience as parents. David and Carmen spent their childhood and adult years in England and have used their insights from both England and Ghana to establish Redwood Universal. The management staff at our learning centre in Accra includes Juliana Storey, a Vice Principal from England with over 20 years teaching experience and a team of local tutors. Our Business Advisory Board is made up of established business leaders who help to keep the business on track. We also have a Youth Advisory Board, that helps to keep us relevant and connected with young people!

Carmen has won multiple international and local awards for her work across these sectors and is credited with creating the ground-breaking HealthLine franchise; and introducing the Touching Lives initiative into Ghana.
