Transforming Trauma Guts, Grit & Great Business

    • Entrepreneurship

With Yemi Penn, a British born Nigerian living in Sydney, Australia, is an author, documentary producer, speaker, engineer, and all-around fearless thought leader. Yemi currently runs four successful businesses; an engineering consultancy based in Sydney, an F45 Fitness Studio in Brixton, London, a Transformation business under the name Yemi Penn and her latest ‘baby’, Golden Thread Café in Sydney. Through her Management Consultancy in Sydney, she provides leadership and strategic direction to a range of clients and industries including Sydney Metro, Transport for New South Wales, University of Technology Sydney, UNSW and F45 Training.

Yemi has recently finished her first documentary titled “Did I choose My Trauma?” which shows her experience of childhood abuse into adulthood and is integrated with the knowledge and insight of leading therapists and healers. She is working tirelessly to raise the vibration of acknowledging and healing our individual, and therefore, our collective trauma. She instigates us all to use our trauma as a catalyst for transformation and growth. She is truly a passionate advocate for awakening the dormant potential in individuals, organizations and corporations.

Join us for this engaging conversation as Yemi shares some valuable insights from her journey, including her early entrepreneurship experiences, her lessons on just "showing up" continually in business (and life). You will hear about Yemi's journey to heal unresolved trauma, the overlap of this journey with early motherhood, and the impact that this healing work has had on her work and entrepreneurial journey as well.

We discuss the topics of introspection, resilience, and the journey to parenthood. And Yemi shares about a time in her life where she experienced homelessness, and how that propelled her into creating a very different future for herself, which included a variety of pivotal moments on her entrepreneurial journey. You will hear about her engineering experience in the corporate world, how she then created her own consultancy, and her thoughts on evolution and retirement.

You will not want to miss her thoughts on how to transform trauma, how we can do this work as individuals and organizations, and the importance of having radical conversations along the way.
