‘’Storytelling is the fabric with which much of my consciousness is built. As a speaker, writer, lawyer and podcaster, I believe in the power of stories to educate, challenge, advocate, entertain, and inspire. In bringing together this Women’s Global Summit with 90+ storytellers, my mission is to use stories to challenge, empower and inspire all as we shift, shape and expand perspectives on what it means to be a dynamic woman in the new normal ‘’ said Global Speaker and Conference Host, Abam Mambo.
Participants can look forward to in-depth dialogues, inclusive of real talks, thought-provoking insights and deep learnings on the most challenging and most relevant topics from speakers such as Founder and CEO of InaTidé, Rolake Akinkugbe-Filani, Founder and CEO at Women at Risk Int’l Foundation, Dr Kemi Ibru Da-Silva, and hosted by Abam Mambo, torgether with co-host, Partner and Business Strategist, Binu Balan. “Enabling people to #speakup about their truth and about topics that matter is at the core of my being and the work I do. And when that’s coupled with the incredible opportunity to change the narrative, it creates the ripple effect of social change. To me that’s what this summit is about. It’s a passion project to move the needle, to be the change that we wish to see; by shifting perspectives’’ said Partner and Business Strategist, Binu Balan.
“We are proud to fully support such events as the Chamber understands the importance of uplifting women in the workplace. It is not a question that women add incredible value to the businesses they run and operate in the energy sector. The world must move beyond words and platitudes and must ensure women are included in all facets of the environments they operate in. There is a whole lot of change going on at the moment, therefore there is no better time to ensure we build a bright future that includes women, looking ahead at 2030 and beyond.” added Executive Chairman, NJ Ayuk.
