Yemi Lawal

Entrepreneur, consultant, and mentor passionate about inspiring, empowering and equipping women and youths for a brighter tomorrow

Yemi is a seasoned strategy and marketing expert with international experience. She also spent over two decades of her career in consulting where she advised businesses on various commercial aspects.

Throughout her career, Yemi has always identified young women who have potential, but do not have the confidence to develop on a career path. She has worked with them to build confidence and to evolve through a clear and successful career path. Many have now grown to become senior executives in their field.

Yemi led the youth programme in a multinational organisation where she developed an action based coaching and mentoring programme.

She has been a mentor on various programmes including the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, Tony Elumelu Foundation and Redbridge (UK) YWCA Mentoring Scheme. Through these programmes, we supported young women to build the right frameworks for their entrepreneurial journey.

Now running her own business, Yemi applies the same programme to enable young women to unlock their potential.

As a speaker, Yemi focuses on actionable steps to enable young ladies (especially those who have grown up without role models) to discover inherent value and potential.

If you are looking to equip young women with key tools to help young women to believe more in themselves and become the best that they can be, Yemi is the right speaker for you.
