About

Assertive. Optimistic. Resilient. Uplifting. Understanding. Altruistic. Spiritual.

I'm Ebony, a German Xennial (micro-generation between Gen X and Millennials) with Nigerian roots who loves to travel the world and help others in any way possible. My signature strength is connectedness. Through clarity, I connect the dots. 

As a former school speaker, I learned that leadership is in my DNA. Today I give trainings and speeches around the world, helping people with leadership development. I connect them with their true selves, with others, and with their surroundings. To achieve purpose-driven results. 

 


My Journey

UNDERSTANDING, ALTRUISTIC & SPIRITUAL

Over time I learned a great deal about how people think and behave. And I learned a lot about myself. In 2013 I was recruited to head training & development at a startup. I took a totally different approach to transforming team culture and training others to become effective leaders. Despite the success, I got fired for being too different. In 2014 I learned what that difference means when I earned certification in Orlando as a John Maxwell Leadership Trainer, Coach and Speaker. I was a transformational leader, who genuinely serves others, from C-level executives to staff members. Driven by my thirst for development I became certified as behavioral profiler in 2016. My emphasis lies on the beauty of humans, their values, desires and spirit to develop human greatness. The authentic self. 

 

 

 

OPTIMISTIC
Growing up as a mixed raced foster child in a Caucasian family wasn’t always easy. Labeled by many, I faced rejection, skepticism, name-calling, and disrespect. But I had built-in optimism, and always asked myself “What if…?” and “HOW can I…?”.

RESILIENT & UPLIFTING 

I left my home town at the age of 19, to design my own life. Despite the negativity in my environment, I earned a management degree two years later, while working full time in Customer Care. At 24, I was diagnosed with a chronic spinal syndrome. I quickly bounced back to push through. In 2004, I successfully built a training department for a Berlin start-up, where I followed the call to join our third party supplier in a leading position in 2005. I trained coached and uplifted hundreds of people in effective communication methods. After that, I wrote my first book and landed my dream job at Sony Europe in 2007. I wrote my second book and went on to become certified as a personal and business coach in 2012. This was also the year I founded the first of my two businesses.
