Hello! Tell us what you do!
Hi! I'm Olatorera Oniru. I'm an assiduous entrepreneur passionate about all things Africa. As CEO of Dressmeoutlet.com, I am currently leading initiatives to realize a pinnacle in Africa’s history whereby we would rely less on importation and innovate more with natural resources and citizenry capabilities. As a member of The National Scholars Honor Society USA, I flourished my career working for two Fortune Top 5 companies namely Bank of America Merrill Lynch and General Electric. I also worked for one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies, Lars Magnus Ericsson, as a global consultant and later as Head of Sales Governance. During the course of my employed years, I traveled to over 50 cities in over 10 countries in 4 continents. I am now a public speaker on the topics of leadership and entrepreneurship!
I have a scholarship-based Master in Business Administration (MBA) degree from Emory University USA and Executive Management Certificates from Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden and International Institute for Management Development, Switzerland.
