She is the creator of transformational life workshops including Create Change (an entrepreneurship program for economically challenged women) and Reality Check (a youth program) all of which are paving the way to raise a more enlightened level of collective human consciousness.
In the midst of a global economic breakdown, where politicians and economist admittedly have no clue on how to fix it, one wonders where the human being goes from here. It is becoming more and more apparent that we cannot solve a problem from the consciousness in which it was created – we’ve tried, and now we are experiencing the results.
In this insightful and profoundly philosophical book, Naomi Sesay pushes the boundaries of who we seem to be, at and ethereal level, to make a case for upgrading our ways of being. The Human Upgrade is a bold statement of self which enlightens the reader towards taking full responsibility for their experiences; thus creating powerful life choices which inevitable have a massive impact on a global scale.
As an inspiring and thought-provoking speaker, Naomi challenges audiences to examine their emotional and cultural intelligence to create a truly diverse workforce. She has shared her insights on how to connect, resonate and powerfully lead a diverse cohort with audiences.
