About Me

She has also trained employees in the Pharma, Tech, Retail, Manufacturing and non-profit sectors among others.

She applies her proprietary Belongingness Quotient (BQ) model to help organizations boost engagement, drive performance, enhance teamwork, strengthen leadership and create aware, diverse, inclusive, safe and equitable workplaces.

A captivating speaker, Abam has spoken in over 25 cities to organizations like the WHO, Microsoft, GSK, Deere, and Yara.
