words from teammates


“I will struggle a bit to make this not sound cliche or exaggerated because none of what I will say is either exaggerated or cliche. Vanessa Kelechi has a winner's spirit. She matches this up with a mind for excellence. She's a natural. When it comes to deploying intellect, social skills and leveraging on an awesome personality, millions of people will have to do twice as much to get half as far as Vanessa. She possesses the exact professional skills that cannot be overlooked by any organisation. Purely talented in acumen, a profound intellectual, an excellent mind and a go-getter. I highly recommend her.”

In my most genuine thought, I will like to describe Vanessa Kelechi as a lady working at the intersection of purpose, passion, pursuit and profit. In the last three years, I have had the opportunity of working with her on some social impact project focused on youth development and I have watched with great admiration how she has brought incredible solutions to the table over the years.

As someone who’s known Vanessa Kelechi for close to 5 years, part of which I have worked with her and seen her work, I can confirm her as a determined team player. She’s focused and committed to progressive goals. She finds opportunities where seeming nonexistent and this attests to her resourcefulness.

Vanessa is one young lady I admire. She sets goals and is committed to making them happen, and this also extends to those around her. If you have a goal you are not ready to achieve don't tell her! I remember when planning a massive conference and I reached out to her, she shared empowering ideas with me and went ahead to ACT! A quintessential master of ceremony.
