FROM CLUELESS TO SUCCESS is a collection of 20 backstories from the professional journey of a seasoned communications professional. In the book, she documents how she started her career in communications in an internship role she entered into quite cluelessly, she recounts the mistakes she made, valuable lessons learned, and how she was able to seize opportunities to drive success.  

Join the author for an intimate reading followed by an interactive discussion touching on the following:
[1] Building an impactful career as a communications professional
[2] Becoming a professional that is known for adding value
[3] Collaborating to create positive narratives about the continent

'From Clueless To Success' shows young professionals and even entrepreneurs that it is ok not to have everything figured out, but they must be willing enough to take risks and not be afraid to fail. The book is also a reflection on the different transitions in my career journey – looking at where I fell short or failed and what I could have done better. It also provides the behind the scenes perspective of how I developed the idea for The Comms Avenue community (a capacity-building and knowledge exchange platform for communications professionals) which today has over 600 professionals from 15 African countries by spotting a gap and making a decision to do something about it.
