Special Guest:

Rasie Bamigbade

Rasie Bamigbade is a business leader, entrepreneur, coach, author and speaker. Rasie was born in Sierra Leone, moved to The Gambia and is now living in Vancouver, Canada.

Leading her teams during her employment at McDonalds, Starbucks, HMShost and more, her leadership role was challenged frequently, and this kept her moving and impacting lives for the better. Her passion for people development, paving the way for the next generation of leaders, will always be her driving force.

Now, Rasie is a passionate leadership coach helping corporate leaders and business leaders lead their teams more effectively through their self leadership.
Rasie wrote and published her first book – ‘Lead In Your Truth’ in 2021 and has inspired more leaders to take action to lead their lives and teams more effectively. Now available on Amazon.

Rasie has never forgotten her roots and actively supports and mentors young people across Sierra Leone. In fact, she is an active supporter of one of the non-profit organizations started by and led by young people in the country: The Youth Movement For Sustainable Development Sierra Leone (YoMSuD-SL).

The main goal of YoMSuD-SL is to establish a foundation and create grassroots links to vulnerable youths, children, the disabled and seniors in Sierra Leone and across Africa through advocacy schemes, women empowerment, childhood poverty, sustainability in the environment and availability to clean, safe and sufficient water supply in rural communities.

Rasie has never forgotten that her own leadership journey started when she first had to deal with the hardships of civil war. Following that, being supported as a youth herself and given new opportunities to  play sports and be part of the Girl Guides movement, Rasie learned the value of adult mentors combined with youth opportunity.  She is proud to give back to the youth today, using her own experiences as a powerful start point.
