About
Suzanne Styles is a highly sought after Business Coach and Consultant in Africa. As a vastly experienced business coach, Suzanne teaches unique life and business success mechanisms. These are skills that she, herself, practiced along the way to achieve one success after another. She has an in-depth understanding for women in the workplace as well as for those women entrepreneurs who are building businesses without a lot of support from families or community circles. Suzanne’s extensive business and entrepreneurial experience made the transition from entrepreneur and business woman, to professional business coach, a natural one. After founding, growing and selling her successful media company to a listed company, you wouldn’t think that Suzanne Styles had grown up in England’s “3-day work-week” recession. As a child, Suzanne was surrounded with a family that seemed to constantly struggle financially. In her early years, Suzanne decided this was not going to be her adult fate and began applying the principles of success in her own life: Know what you want Make clear and definite decisions Build clear plans Take constant action Be persistent Be grateful Despite the fact that she didn’t complete a formal education, and found herself a single parent with three children at the age of 26, Suzanne pressed on. She was determined to find her way beyond the initial structured family and community she had emerged from. Suzanne stumbled into the advertising industry and realised she’d found a niche which would allow her to grow in business. She became South Africa’s first female director of an Out of Home Media company and then co-founded her own company, Airport Media, in 2002. Just a few years later, she was selling the entity at its highest point of success. As an entrepreneur Suzanne pursued specific business mentors. Nic Griffin, CEO of The Thornybush Collection, taught her the value of business relationships. Bob Proctor, Founder of LifeSuccess, taught her that there is a completely different and very powerful set of business tools that must be applied to your mind in order to generate the successes you dream of. “In my early days, had I had a business coach to guide me through the processes of how to use my mind, how to think into results, my successes would have been even greater” says Suzanne. “For years, I did it the hard way with sweat and struggle because I believed this is what entrepreneurs had to do,” says Suzanne. “Granted, building a business takes dedication and persistence, for sure. But once you realize that the thoughts in your mind are ultimately and actually responsible for controlling your business success, you begin to see just how far you can go once you tackle those long-standing thought patterns! Knowing what I know now as a Business Coach, I can help entrepreneurs and business owners achieve so much more in less time.” “Even if no one in your family or circle of life has ever managed to build a hugely successful business, their facts have nothing to do with how you will succeed,” says Suzanne. “All your results ultimately come from what you think about all day long. Because we can develop ways to change and control our thoughts, we can do exactly the same with our lives and businesses.”

About
Kalimah Priforce runs Qeyno Labs, which works with local partners and schools to bring technology-enabled career discovery into under-served classrooms using game-like rewards and mentorship from real-life professionals. Qeyno focuses on making "career day" an every day experience for the millions of students that can't afford private college and career guidance. He is passionate about innovation that transforms children's lives in and outside the classroom. At 8 years old, he held a successful hunger strike against his Bedford-Stuyvesant group home to add more books to its library. At 14, a chance meeting with Dr. Lorraine Monroe, a world-class educator in Harlem NY, sowed the seeds of his dream to be an innovator. Starting his first computer company at 17, it wasn't until October 1st, 2000, when his 18 year old younger brother was shot and killed behind their childhood elementary school that he formed a lifelong commitment to transforming education for under-served kids. For the past twelve years, Kalimah's progressive and inclusive "our kids, our future" approach to youth development has stood at the intersection of technology, equity, and the classroom, and has made him a favorite among K-12 youth, parents, teachers, technologists, and private to public partnerships as a highly regarded speaker and presenter. He recently co-founded the Pitch Mixer Entrepreneur Forum that provides a platform for under-represented innovators to pitch their startups to an open forum of peers and experts and is based in the San Francisco East Bay Area.
