About

Yemi Penn is a fearless business woman and thought leader on creating your own memo, meaning ‘she’ gets to write the script of her life and encourages others to do the same.

An engineer by profession and entrepreneur by passion having run 3 successful businesses in the past. She is now researching the alchemy of transmuting pain to power with a strong desire to learn new ways of being whilst challenging the status quo. Yemi invites the collective to ignite their rebellious curiosity in all aspects of their life, sharing the tools to do just that.

More recently Yemi has added documentary producer to her repertoire as she shifts her core life’s purpose to raising the vibration of acknowledging and healing our individual and therefore collective trauma, something individuals, communities and organisations alike have experienced over the past couple of years.

Yemi is the go-to thought leader for transformation, productivity, diversity and inclusion.

BUILDING COURAGE & RESILIENCE

Yemi’s superpower is to meet people wherever they are, even with intense disagreement. In staying curious with a trained ability to tap into empathy she is able to reach a common ground that avoids a ‘zero sum gain’ scenario. 

Yemi is renowned for highlighting the elephant in the room, ensuring no one gets trampled on, asking high quality questions to empower individuals, teams and organisations to be pivotal to their transformation process. 

Yemi utilises a teach, reflect, share and act methodology in all of her offerings, using the framework in figure 1 to ultimately alchemise pain points to power.

Testimonials

"Yemi facilitated an extremely complex and challengingsymposium over 2 days of multiple sessions with several stakeholders to help us achieve concrete outcomes and action plans that we wanted. It was an immense task and Yemi was beyond excellent in keeping people engaged, active and in good humour to work collaboratively and effectively."

University Technology Sydney

"Yemi was very personable, sharing from her own experience built immediate rapport. Personally I was very impressed that Yemi was in the room for 2hrs prior to her session. This became evident in her presentation when she referred back to topics that previous speakers had discussed, making her key points more relevant to the audience."

Hammond Care

"I just wanted to take the time to write back to say thank you for this session. 

Yemi is an incredible speaker and the session far exceeded my expectations! I’ve been involved in other mentoring programs before and they didn’t have something quite like this / to this quality before."
