Decolonising Mindsets
Keynotes & Consulting to deliver the mindset, behaviours, and tools to grow through change.

Diversity & Inclusion |  Speaking

With more than 2 decades working as an IT Consultant, I now also live out my passion for helping families, schools and corporates create academic and social impact. How? Using inclusive and representative childrens literature as a way to shape their global outlook and nurture reading for pleasure, a formidable tool for social justice . My lived experience as a Black woman in the male dominated IT sector aligned perfectly with the season when the need for diversity awareness, belonging and inclusion was at all time high.

I deliver high-energy, thought-provoking, engaging & impactful keynote speeches at corporate and education events which challenge audiences to leverage their voices and focus paying attention to what matters most in building an inclusive culture. Audiences love my authentic delivery of quick and practical inclusion strategies which they can apply personally and professionally, most calling on real examples from my own story.

 For organisations who want their teams to feel they are the authors of the narrative of a modern day workplace where everyone feels they truly belong, thrives and does better because we know better my talks would be the perfect fit.  


“Diversity is a fact. Equity is a choice & Inclusion is an action. Now more than ever, it is vital to create and hold space in your organization for Inclusion and Diversity, to foster a Sense of Belonging so that everyone on your team feels seen, heard, understood and included!”

About Ndah

Ndah’s career started as an IT Quality Assurance & Business Analysis Consultant, a role she held for close to 2 decades working in various multi-million-pound transformation programmes for large corporates with the Banking and Energy sectors. 

Life as a Black woman in tech was naturally full of wins and challenges until September ‘21 when Ndah decided to dedicate focus to her passion for improving reading attainment and diversity awareness in children. Knowing the impact of reading for pleasure on social mobility and building on the work done by her teenage daughters, in the publishing space, 

Ndah embarked on the unique opportunity to grow Happier Every Chapter, a literacy service which carries out library diversity audits, speaking engagements in education settings and curates/delivers diverse and representative children's literature to ensure better literacy outcomes and to fill the school to workplace pipeline with decolonised and inclusive mindsets. She uses her passion for literacy to inspire, embolden and fill others especially the younger generation with the courage and resources needed to see and do things differently. 

When not curating books, Ndah can be found travelling, playing tennis and spending time with family and friends.
