“It is vitally important for women transitioning into the workforce to understand the importance of communicating their uniqueness and ability by being their own brand,” said Olalah. “The simple truth is, no matter your career choice, your brand matters. Everything you say and do shapes your brand, whether you are aware of it or not. To be asked to speak to a group of women who inspire and empower each other in their business journey is truly an honor for me.”
