Leadership In Practice: Changing The African Narrative

Olajumoke Adenowo, Architect, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and Founder of AD Consulting and Awesome Treasures, on changing the African narrative. When some western people think of Africa images of giraffes and safari animals pop to mind, as do the Baobab tree or Tree of Life or impoverished villagers surrounding a new well. But the African continent, with a population of more than 1.2B people, is more sophisticated and innovative. Adenowo encourages the world to work harder and open its collective mind to seek more authentic experiences of the complicated stories that make up this dynamic continent.
