I'm a humbled and very grateful Cameroonian American. In search of my passion, I confusedly became a jack of all trades. But I was also a surprised recipient of the highest award from every organization I ever worked for. Awards include the AIESEC.org Global Hall of Fame for coaching and mentoring, a seven-year consulting award from CTA.tech, and being named Board Leadership Fellow by NACDonline.org. So, after completing an Ivy League doctorate in board dynamics, it became crystal clear to me that I had been an unconventional dot connector all along. A humbled boardroom dot connector, I love to help with keynotes, executive coaching, team building, training and research so that you can connect the dots more often.
