Oluwayemisi Mafe

I am a Marketing Communications professional with over 20 years’ experience in Consultancy, Social Enterprise, Banking, E-Commerce and Insurance. Presently I head the Brand Communications department of SUNU Assurances Nigeria Plc., a member of SUNU Group. Before now, I was the Manager, PR & Brand Communications at Konga Online Shopping Limited.

I was inducted as a WIMBIZ Associate in 2006 and was part of the first set of mentees that participated in the WIMBIZ Mentoring Program where I was mentored by Mrs. Betty Irabor. The mentoring program was very instructive and highly impactful for me as my mentor gave me the opportunity learn a lot from her about networking and driving myself to be the best in what I do. The mentoring was a very relevant to my circumstances at the time as she helped me to rise above my situation and forge ahead. It was just what I needed to find my feet and soar. The experience made me to look inward and discover how I can add value everywhere I find myself.

WIMBIZ is home as most of the sisters in the fold are always willing and ready to share when you need to tap their brains. WIMBIZ makes it easy for you to connect with friends who can always relax and bond with through the various sub groups. The Food and Travel Club provides a platform for the foodies among us to wine, dine and generally unwind. I believe strongly in giving back to a body which has been so beneficial to me and I am doing this by volunteering as a Mentor and Big Sister.

WIMBIZ keeps pushing me to be relentless in my drive and over the years I always seek opportunities to strive for more. This pushed me to apply for and participate as a 2014 Vital Voices Lead Fellow (VVLead Fellowship Program; a distinctive partnership between the UK government’s Department for International Development and Vital Voices Global Partnership). I am a Fellow; National Institute of Marketing in Nigeria (NIMN), Member; Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), Member; The Chartered Institute of Marketing, UK.

I am very passionate about touching lives and gives expression to this by volunteering for social causes that impacts women.
