Everything I do serve a common purpose: to create more innovators, critical thinkers, problem solvers and most of all inspire people to do more in life.
I have dedicated my own life to improving the lives of others. I am a life coach, and I make people brave, shine, bold and I help them to unleash their enormous potential and find their values, talents and passions.
Reigniting women has a BIG place in my heart, and I love the overwhelmingly positive impact my method is having on so many peoples lives.
Back in 2007, I decided that I never wanted to be employed ever again. Most people would probably say that I left a pretty good career, but I had a burning desire to create something of my own. I wanted to create a job based on my desires, values, talents and passion.
I love my work – because I can impact important decisions. I see how I impact laws, implement changes in companies and even in countries, and am welcomed to speak up in settings I once could only have dreamed of.
I was born in Morocco, but grew up in Denmark with a Danish mom and a Moroccan dad.
I achieved an E-MBA from Copenhagen Business School in 2007 and have received further education and executive training from a number of institutions, including Yale University, Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, INCAE Business School and ISB India.
I now teach online and at leading business schools in the world in “life design.” In my work I support many organizations and charities, including Women UN - Women Advisory Group (Denmark); SAC World Economic Forum, YGL, Gender equality (Geneva); The School Challenge Team (world wide), The Global Teacher Prize and many more.
Today I get to work in many countries, and I work with some of the smartest people on earth.
I start companies. I invest in others, and I speak and advise, and I have a great passion for writing books, columns and blogs.
In March 2012 I was elected “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum - one of only 192 elected in the world.
I’ve received a number of prestigious awards, including Rising Star and Talent 2004, Top 100 Talent Europe (2004), 40 under 40 (2013) and Nordic 20 Thinkers (2013) and Womenomics Influencer Award 2015. I was also chosen as a UN Women Advisor in August 2015. In 2016, I was appointed by TED Talks as a mentor to the speakers.
Today I reside in Palo Alto, California, where I continue to advise American leaders, entrepreneurs and companies in areas such as strategy, management, leadership and life design.
