Ebere Akadiri.

Serial Entrepreneur, Business Development Consultant, Mentor and Leadership Expert


Founder, Rise & Lead Women

I’m an entrepreneur, event strategist and business consultant with over 23 years of business management and leadership experience in the food and event industry.

As the founder of Rise & and Women and Ataro Consulting, it’s been a privilege to create platforms for women, young leaders and entrepreneurs to receive the education, resources and strategic connections they need to confidently show up with authenticity and grow their careers and businesses.

I want to see a world where women have equal opportunity as men to make the difference they want to make – whether it’s financial freedom, occupying decision-making positions or building a successful business that makes an impact.

As an international consultant, I consult for impact organisations and corporations on several initiatives such as DEI Strategy, Learning Curriculum Design, Event and Sponsorship Strategy and women’s leadership development.
I have designed, developed and managed high-end experiential in-person and virtual events for organisations like the United Nations, the Organisation of African First Ladies (OAFLAD), UPS Europe, Saipem Contracting, ILead Conference, and Rise & Lead Women, amongst others. I have spoken at several corporate events on leadership, business growth, entrepreneurship and inclusion.
