Hayley Mulenda

Turning your student's setbacks into comebacks

Hayley Mulenda is an international speaker, author and change agent who has directly impacted over 18,000 people across the world with her journey, life lessons and wisdom. She has been described as "an inspiration for the next generation."

At age 18 Hayley was recognised by 10 Downing Street, Mayor of London, NatWest and Black Enterprise Mogul as one of the most influential black Entrepreneurs in the UK. She has traveled the world working with different schools, institutes and organisations running different workshops, seminars and talks to provide solutions and life strategies.

After nearly committing suicide in 2016 Hayley realised how the increasing issue of mental health is affecting young people and BME groups leading her to become an active advocate for mental health amongst young people and BME groups. Her experiences led to her producing a self-help mental health book "The ABCs To Student Success" that helps young people cope with trials and tribulations life may throw at them. She is one person who has learned how to turn her setbacks into comebacks.

Hayley is a firm believer in "prevention is better than cure" and she now wants to prevent many young people falling into the state she fell into by teaching them how to turn their setbacks into comebacks too.

I found her delivery style confident, eloquent and passionate, which is exactly the positive role model our male and female students need to see more of. I would definitely invite Hayley back."
