Mildred Talabi specialises in three areas: finding a job, working in the media, and starting a business.
Mildred believes that the key to a fulfilling work life is to connect who you are with what you do and is therefore passionate about helping young people achieve this in their own lives – whether in business or as an employee.
As an Enterprise Ambassador for Lambeth Council, Mildred’s own career portfolio is diverse – ranging from professional journalism and editing (writing for newspapers including The Guardian and Sunday Times Culture magazine), to CV consulting and training, and running the award-winning healthy eating business Raw Love UK which she co-founded with her husband in June 2009.
Her first book, “7 Keys to a Winning CV: How to create a CV that gets results”, was published by Harriman House in September 2011 and provides the foundation for her popular CV writing seminar and workshop programmes.
Mildred is a lively and engaging speaker who will inspire, motivate and equip your students to raise their aspirations and fulfil their personal career goals and ambitions.
"Mildred is the perfect speaker for students – she is lively, likeable and infectiously enthusiastic. The students were all delighted with her, both as a live speaker and for her follow through and follow up in answering questions both during the session and by email later.”– Paul Kerr, Senior Lecturer, Broadcast Media, London Metropolitan University
“Mildred impressed me with her confidence, energy and enthusiasm for entrepreneurship. She spoke from the heart without the need for notes or a formal presentation and gave a very vivid and heart-warming story of her life journey. Mildred is very charming and she makes everyone relax and listen to her fascinating life story. She is a young serial entrepreneur ready and willing to try new things and never give up. These are just the sorts of values and attitudes we want in our students. She is the perfect role model.”– Stephen O’Regan, Programme Convenor, University of Roehampton Business School
“I was impressed with Mildred's ability to connect to her audience and the positive approach she had to the session. The audience were engaged and attentive and came away with some excellent practical advice and guidance. What an inspiration!”– Meredith Smith, Employment Manager, Southampton Solent University
