“I make an impact in your world, so that you can make an impact in the world at large. Supporting and resourcing women towards their true path”
Remi Olajoyegbe is a London based Coach, Mentor Speaker and Social Entrepreneur.
Raised and schooled in London she is the daughter of an Assamese (NE India) mother and a Nigerian father. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Anthropology and a Masters in Social Research from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
After her studies, she enjoyed an 11-year career in the City where she worked for Goldman Sachs, rising to lead the Equity Capital Markets Syndicate Group raising multiple billions in capital for companies globally. Remi became Managing Director and Global Head of Equity Syndicate for her next appointment at Renaissance Capital, aged 33. In late 2008, she was voted one of the Top 100 Influential Women in European Finance and also named one of Financial News 100 Rising Stars. During this time due to her love of food and dining in her community, she also co- founded the Palmerston, an award-winning London restaurant, with a 15 year track record.
Knowing her passion for developing people, such that they can achieve transformation in their lives, she retrained as a coach in 2011. She now leverages her vast professional and personal experience to mentor high fliers and coach individuals across a broad range of industries from Finance to Fashion, TV to Technology.
Remi splits her time between her work and her socially minded endeavours, such as Peace Button, a Mindfulness method she co-founded for primary school children.
In 2014, Remi was also selected to be part of the BBC’s BAME (Black & Asian Minority Ethnic) Expert Voices. An initiative seeking to expand the diversity of experts in the BBC’s broadcasting stable.
She is one of the inaugural cohort of female Game Changers established in 2018. She has contributed to the network as an active participant in numerous events and as a speaker, co-hosting an event where she spoke about and explored the elusive notion of 'being enough’ with other Game Changing women. A topic that is emotive and illuminating in terms of the obstacles impairing women’s progress, despite their clear evidence of success.
