For several years, I had to “struggle with the juggle” of an action-packed life as a full-time university administrator, philanthropist, board member, and entrepreneur while being fully present with my husband and two sons.
Now as a leadership productivity expert, I am committed to equipping professionals with timeless principles that maximize their productivity, so they can have an influential executive presence that is energized and makes an impact.
Shemeka Brathwaite, MSEd is a leadership productivity expert, keynote speaker, and coach. After spending over a decade in adult and higher education, Shemeka Brathwaite established her own virtual training academy for purpose-driven leaders. She is often invited by organizations, associations, and educational institutions to provide inspiring programs on productivity, leadership, and executive presence. Her immersive training programs help professionals learn how to implement new systems that streamline the demands on one’s time, so they can achieve more at work, increase their influence, and live intentionally.
Her energetic messages are the result of her background as a spoken word artist.
