No Experience is wasted . .
Before founding Soluman Consultancy, I obtained 20+ years of corporate experience as an Snr Business Manager & Global training lead. My experience has been gained from leading organisations such as Merrill Lynch, Zenith Bank (Nigeria), HSBC, JP Morgan, ABN AMRO, RBS and Barclays.
During my corporate career, my chosen side of the desk role included mentoring/coaching, numerous Entry-level employees. With a special focus on talent from ethnically diverse communities and low socioeconomic backgrounds.
A primary focus was supporting them in successfully adapting to corporate culture and equipping them with the tools and strategies to map their career trajectory. Addressing how to navigate the bumps in the journey & ultimately transform them from employees to “architects of their careers” empowered them to take charge of their career trajectories.
What I do today . .
My past experience is used to aid my work with organisations by creating holistic developmental frameworks for ALL entry/rising talent and embedding inclusive and equitable leadership behaviours for 1st-level leaders.
As a certified career coach, I equip professionals to navigate their corporate careers in those crucial formative and developmental stages and support first-level leaders create team cultures that are underpinned by equitable and inclusive values.
Social justice and being an equitable opportunities evangelist underpins the majority of my extra-curricular activity past and present, from being a Christians Against Poverty LifeSkills Manager, a consultant for an African Caribbean racial equity network and a serving governor of voluntary aided primary school where I serve as Chair of Personnel & Finance and the Anti-racism governance lead.
