Her talk ‘Smart Women, Smart Habits’ is aligned with this year’s IWD theme, which focuses on how women can feel equal by becoming financial superstars.

Her mission is to help women take control of their financial life. When women transform their relationship with money, they transform their relationship with life.

After spending over a decade in the financial industry, Obu knows what is truly important to plan and achieve the desired lifestyle for women – and it’s not just about making more and more money.
