Vicki Olatundun is no ordinary speaker. A totally unapologetic passionholic sold out to the cause of making change happen. Aptly described as a social justice architect, a challenge to the status quo and a creative non-profit strategist and that is just to name a few.
Many have described Vicki Olatundun as persuasive, she says persuaded, they say convincing she says convinced. She says great, they say absolutely phenomenal. There is no question she is sold out to the cause of making life around her so much better and it shows in her ability to make change happen.
A passionate, powerful high-octane motivational speaker and author, Vicki says it like it is and she lives that way too. She is a socially conscious team leader with a passion for the people she serves as well as the people she serves with. A former attorney known for her visionary abilities in the not for profit sector, the avenue through which she has been making a sustainable difference for Canadians for the past 15 years using strategic business principles.
In 2014, Vicki was a nominee for the prestigious Woman of Distinction Award 2014 and in 2015 she was declared a “Change Maker” by Canadian Living Magazine, one of Canada’s 40 Change makers.
In 2016 she took home the coveted Non-profit Excellence Award presented by the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce and in the same year she was honoured by the Manitoba Legislature for her service to families in South East Manitoba. 2017 saw her lead her team to another nomination for excellence by the Steinbach Chamber .
Vicki is an Executive Director of a not for profit organization and is also an instructor at a local college. A TEDx speaker, an inspiring author with a penchant for writing in a very conversational yet thought provoking style. We are expecting her new offering in 2021.
Speaking , Storytelling and Writing are my super powers!
I absolutely LOVE speaking! I have had amazing opportunities to share my story with others and I continue to do so to inspire others to tell their story.
I enjoy the gift of being able to share my story and encourage others to share theirs. I LOVE to speak and I am good at it. I use my platform to help as many others as I can.
Over the next few months, I look forward to sharing lots more by way of a new book and a new audio book. The pandemic has slowed things down but for me it has been a gift in disguise, many of us have had to re-evaluate, re-assess, re-think the way we do things and that I find this is always an opportunity to improve. We still tell our story only now we do it by Zoom, Facetime, Google Meet or any other virtual platform.
I fight for Road Safety. We are losing too many lives to Road Traffic Accidents.
I inspire people to tell their story as I share mine. We all have a story!
I use my platform to elevate the stories of others.
Say something interesting about your business here.
What's something exciting your business offers? Say it here.
When you have had the challenge of being hurt in a road traffic accident that was no fault of your own, there are several things can happen. You become bitter or better, depressed or determined, angry or an ambassador. I chose the latter of all three. I became better, determined and an ambassador for change.
A seventeen year old teenager was distracted by her cell phone while she was driving behind me, she ploughed into the back of my vehicle and caused me physical harm. It took surgery and many months of rehab to recover, so now I speak to audiences especially High School kids about the dangers of driving. My dream is to bring the number down by 50% in my life time. Too many young lives are lost to the road unnecessarily. It is time for change!
According to the Traffic Injury Research Foundation." 90% of Road Traffic Accidents are as result of human behavior". This means that the power to change is literally in our hands.
Globally we lost 3400 people daily to a road traffic accident. That is EVERY 24 SECONDS!
I would love to hear from you! I know life can be busy but I am never too busy to respond to messages. Drop me a line, send me feedback or just let me know that you are having a great day!
