Hello, thanks for your interest in what I am doing now.
I’m writing a book on what I have learned along the way about what it takes to help individuals and systems truly flourish, and what we can all do about this. This becomes more important to me each time I think about what kind of world my girl will grow up in.
I now consult, ideate, and contribute independently through Curiosity. I also co-invest in founders and platforms enabling a flourishing future for all. Curiosity serves as a holding for my investments, consulting, experiments, collaborative projects, and initiatives that align with my overarching goal of contributing to the long-term future of humanity hinged on flourishing people, platforms, and policy.
I support the good people and ideas at AllforDevelopment, the development organisation I founded and led from 2009 to 2017, contributing to policy, global education, leadership, and human development initiatives.
Until December 2022, I was COO at a human flourishing media and teaching company (joyinc.xyz) present in the USA, UK, and Nigeria with a mission to build safe, warm spaces across business, government, and culture and equip a new generation of Africans with happiness and flourishing skills. I have been on the founding team since 2017. [Projects here]
Sometimes, the experiences from some of the things I had helped build in the past come in handy – both expanding my range, and helping to form unique perspectives. I had worked on the ethics and governance of AI initiative at Harvard, rationality community building, and an international standard / recommended practice on the impact of autonomous and intelligent systems on human wellbeing. I used to be a strategist at innovation hubs in Nigeria and co-convened an innovation platform that birthed a million USD investment in fostering innovation in a state in Nigeria.
Previous adventures can be found here.
