Human Skills Expert
Business Strategist & Consultant
Raised by a semi-literate grandmother who rose from the ranks of a domestic worker to one of the legendary entrepreneurs of her time, and a father, a legal intellectual and businessman, but both successful entrepreneurs, I had the best of both worlds!
After nearly two decades of working full-time in Financial Services and International Trade Development whilst running businesses concurrently, I transitioned solely into entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship, Personal and Professional Development have always been my life call. When a personal family issue left my family physically and emotionally scarred, I set up a beauty salon with two staff in my father’s living room.
This later grew into Allure Africa Group with Ghana’s first-ever Day Spa, a beauty academy and a professional line of wellness & beauty products. Through client interactions, it became apparent that outward transformation was not the only need of my clients. That is when I realised that the human capacity is only engaged within and expressed outwardly and I evolved into helping people transform.
Today, I have transitioned into full-time Executive Coaching, Corporate Training Facilitation, and Business Consulting, delivering pragmatic and strategic solutions to individuals and teams worldwide. I have had multiple personal and professional failures, most of which were lived in the intrusive glare of the public eye. Rather than leave my story as a wasted conversation or idle gossip, I have decided to share my story for the benefit of others!
Live THROUGH failures and setbacks and not within them!
