My Story

I launched my first business, a female clothing retail company, in 2008. My second business was a restaurant with multi branches, employing over 56 staff members. In 2013, I left my restaurant business behind and moved to the Netherlands with my family as a trailing spouse, which made me experience a break in my career and almost led me into depression.

Trying to start all over again and unable to find a network that supports ambitious women in business with the right level of resources, events and community, I created the Rise and Lead Summit in 2018.

The Rise and Lead Women brand now has a strong national and international brand presence, with a large community of diverse women and men in Europe and Africa, hosting over 20 events every year. In addition, we partner with major global brands, such as UPS, to co-create educational events and programs for female entrepreneurs and professional women.

I’ve had the honor and privilege of interviewing dozens of influential leaders and corporate executives from major global organisations, learning what has helped them climb the leadership ladder.

And now, I pay it forward to women in business, entrepreneurs and startups who are ready to rise and lead their career and business.

There are three things I’m most passionate about:

  1. Hosting events that connect leaders from diverse backgrounds, facilitating strategic relationships and partnerships.
  2. Sharing knowledge and creating experiences that help people achieve their goals.
  3. Driving inclusion and equity.

A Note From Ebere

A weekly newsletter that shares stories, insights, tips and resources for professionals and entrepreneurs.

I’m launching a weekly newsletter where I share what I’m thinking, what I’m working on, who I’m partnering with and behind-the-scenes of how I run my businesses. What this means is that this newsletter is for people who love to listen to stories or are curious to learn more about how others see things. It will primarily be focused on sharing my thoughts on topics that matter to me, such as leadership, inclusion, entrepreneurship, and self-care. I will also share my views on racism and building bridges to make the world a better place. I will share tips for professionals and entrepreneurs. It will make me happy if you subscribe, engage, and send me your views on these topics. It’s a call for community. Curious? You can subscribe here.
