Hadiza Adeyemi

Highly energetic, inspiring, motivating and experienced speaker

Having graduated with a BSC (Hons) in Management and Finance, as well as a couple of postgraduate programs in Leadership management, Global business, Strategy & Innovation, Hadiza has worked as a Financial Management Lead Consultant for almost two decades, leading and implementing business transformation and innovative management information solutions for various blue chip clients worldwide, all in various industrial sectors.

Hadiza has designed and led some of the most effective and sustainable business transformational programmes in British business as well as for organisations abroad. Throughout her career, Hadiza built a reputation for her diligence, conscientiousness, top quality standards, staying positive amidst challenges, problem solving skills and no-nonsense approach at always getting the job done. She was recently awarded the role of Ambassador for business relations in her local region by one of the leading business organisations for business leaders in the country .

When giving talks, Hadiza is prolific for her high energy and confident style of delivery, bringing presentations to life with lots of humour, tapping into interesting stories from some of her travels worldwide whilst working on some very exciting projects and being an active part of some very talented teams. She would also recreate some stories from her childhood days which students usually relate very well to.

Her presentations are no doubt a distinctive mix of story-telling, insight, wit, video clips, wisdom, acumen and a deep know-how of what makes people (especially students) tick and perform at their very best. High endorsements about sustained impressions are usually received from audiences as they remain thoroughly engaged throughout by her cheerful, refreshing yet profound stage presence. Everyone has some indelible advice, useful tips and positive vibes to take away afterwards. There have also been some magical light bulb moments reported!

Hadiza is always keen on using her innate strengths and talents of connecting and empathising with students of all ages to motivate and inspire them to achieve their true potentials and purpose in life using her own challenges and breakthroughs as a case study when giving her talks. This is stemming from her strong belief that every human being has the ability to thrive if given the right tools to do so.

Hadiza is passionate about championing certain youth related issues such as cyber bullying, well-being, environmental pollution/waste especially as it relates to long term sustainability for future generations to come, lack of adequate career guidance/positive role models for aspiring students and future business leaders. She believes more can be done in these areas and is always ready to lend her voice to debates as well as help lobby the government to do more about these matters.

In her spare time, Hadiza is a Non-Executive director/Trustee under various capacities especially risk, strategy, corporate governance and environmental sustenance on several UK executive boards. She also helps raise funds for worthy charitable causes after her heart by taking up various sport challenges, organising & speaking at events; Hadiza is a business mentor to some youths who come from challenging backgrounds with the goal being to work with them to achieve their dreams of running their own businesses, develop their strengths, build their self-esteem, and hopefully transform their lives for the better.

Testimonials from Teachers

"Hadiza is a naturally engaging speaker who really drew our sixty 16 and 17 year olds in, to listen to her varied career story and related life’s ups and downs. The students often need to gain context and realism, along with inspiration- and she gave them all three in her talk. She also encouraged attendees to speak up and be heard too- acting as a real life role model in confident presentation and communication skills"

– Joanna Greatwich, Careers Co-ordinator, Woodhouse 6th Form College

A knowledgeable and eloquent speaker, who used her life experiences to share gold nuggets with her audience. She not only engaged her listeners and incorporated them into her presentation, but was able to connect with them in a positive manner. Well done Debi!"

– Steven Hamilton, Business Lecturer, John Ruskin 6th Form College

"Hadiza was one of the speakers at the Motivation and Information workshop facilitated for students aged 16 – 18 years at Christ the King Sixth Form College. Her presentation was articulate and very inspirational! She captivated and arrested the attention of student attendees through the narrative of her life journey. This created an incredible appeal as they learnt life lessons especially in regard of how she overcame challenges of life. For instance, her resilience to work through several obstacles in order to become what she is now. Furthermore, her flexibility in becoming a consultant from her Finance background as well as the desire to constantly improve her knowledge through CPD served as good learning points for my students. It was a great delight to listen to her and her presentation was very impactful indeed!!!"

– Dr Jonathan Adeniji, Head, BTEC Business Level 3, Christ the King Sixth Form College
