BIOGRAPHY

Vanessa Faloye helps change-maker organisations design and deliver social impact education that builds, agitates, and transforms systems of power. As a freelance trainer-facilitator, her curricula is rooted in intersectional anti-oppression; systems thinking; and social action. Vanessa travels the world, bridging the local and global, to work with a variety of stakeholders including: community groups; corporates; NGOs and nonprofits, schools (both student and teacher training); and universities including Cambridge, Oxford, SOAS, Queen Mary, Bristol, and Kings College University. Vanessa speaks her truth to power through motivational speaking, blogging, and in the near future, podcasting. Her keynotes not only critically discuss paradigm and pedagogic shifts in social innovation but ultimately compel audiences to think bigger and do better, in their lives and the lives of others. With much world experience gained along her somewhat unconventional career path, Vanessa has come to wear a number of hats including activist, educator, entrepreneur, and thinker - and will stop at nothing to see the world changed.
