2. Over the past 2 decades, I’ve facilitated leadership programs and coached professionals from all over the globe. I’ve had the opportunity to coach professionals from the Netherlands, South Africa, the UK, Nigeria, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Brazil and Italy through their professional and interpersonal challenges, which has given me not just valuable experience, but also a global perspective on corporate challenges and success.

As a Harvard-trained global learning and organizational development leader, keynote speaker, and author, I’ve spent two decades working inside some of the most high-performing companies.

Now, I’m committed to decoding the unwritten rules of success in high-performing, corporate environments for Black professionals. In fact, I’m so passionate about it that I wrote a book entitled, Intelligence Isn’t Enough: A Black Professional’s Guide to Thriving in the Workplace and I serve as a guest speaker on the topic.

It’s a beyond-the-book-smarts guide that helps professionals identify the preconceived notions and fears they might bring into corporate spaces that could be detrimental to their career success.

In it, I also share some of the most impactful lessons I’ve learned while navigating my career, managing a leadership development program for Black professionals and coaching underrepresented talent.
