Self-made, single mother millionairess Yemi Penn is a name to note.
Not just because she has achieved a level of business success unexpected, for a
solo parent to two kids. But because the legacy she is intent on leaving in the world goes well beyond imparting business tools.

Yemi Penn is living testament to the power of owning our story, stepping out of our shadow and finding our voice.

Today Yemi is a Transformation Life and Business Coach, an Engineer running her
Management Consultancy in Sydney, Australia providing leadership and strategic direction to a range of clients and industries including: Network Rail, Sydney Metro, Transport for New South Wales, BMW, University of Technology Sydney, UNSW and F45 Training.

Yemi runs three successful businesses, an engineering consultancy based in
London and Sydney, an F45 Fitness Studio in Brixton, London and her latest ‘baby’ W Squared Coaching, Yemi’s business prowess has made the South London born entrepreneur one of the UK’s most impressive business minds based between Australia’s Sydney and London.

Today Yemi’s work sees her combine coaching executives within some of the
world’s leading multi-national corporations, with her passion for enabling individuals to live and work ‘on purpose.’

Recently published is her first book Did you get the memo? The book is a powerful effort to empower individuals to reclaim their stories and experiences and transmute pain into power. Yemi’s perspective, stems not just from philosophy or coaching techniques but from lived experience.

Aged seven, Yemi was sexually abused by a family member. It took decades for her to feel worthy enough to heal and communicate her experience;

“Speaking was an acknowledgement and an honouring of my suffering. I realised
that I needed to break the chain of keeping the painful experiences that bind us, a secret. Irrespective of what our pain is, owning it liberates and affirms us.”

It is this internal power and courage to be vulnerable which separates Yemi from the
multitude of coaches imparting tools for transformation. A passionate advocate for
awakening the dormant potential in individuals, organisations and corporations, Yemi is committed to sharing how humanising our approach to business and elevating the
conversation around disruption and diversity beyond the focus on the gender roles, can change lives, drive fulfilment and impact the business bottom line,

“Whether it’s the individual who will read my book or the CEO of a FTSE 500 company, my invitation is to challenge the status quo, throw the memo out and create a blue print which honours the highest potential possibilities and outcomes.”

As a living testament to an approach to life and work which is arguably remarkable, we would all be wise and well placed to listen.
