Naomi has spent the last decade empowering business leaders, entrepreneurs and under-represented communities to reach more of their potential. She has built a high impact career empowering others to achieve positive, transformative changes in their personal lives, their organisations and their communities.
From a single parent household, being bullied at school, a diagnosis of depression, going into care at 17 and, amongst other things, being attacked at knifepoint. To today: graduating from University of London with honours, launching two award winning businesses, and various social initiatives.
A social entrepreneur at heart, she launched first business whilst studying at university. The 4WD Foundation delivered behavioural change programmes to some of London’s most vulnerable young people.
She went on to advise top investment banks on how to attract diverse entry-level talent and build inclusive cultures. Facilitating leadership development and employee engagement initiatives for corporate clients followed. Clients have included BP, CBRE, IHG, McDonald’s and Michael Kors.
In 2014 she set up the positive change agency, A Life Less Ordinary Wanted. From FTSE 500 companies in crisis, to individuals at a crossroads in life, Naomi now harnesses emotional intelligence as a coach and facilitator to support her clients to become adaptable, compassionate, resilient leaders, building businesses and lives they love.
She graduated from the University of London with BSc Hons in Management. She has continued learning with WYSE International, Common Purpose and the Coaching Academy.
In her spare time she seeks balance by travelling, meditating and running.
