Live Q+A with Elizabeth Uviebinené & Yomi Adegoke

‘Slay: How to Succeed in Your Career’ with Audible LIVE & Rebel Book Club. Recorded live on Thursday 15th April 2021.

We had the great pleasure of learning the Slay way, with Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené.

Crowned the ‘Outspoken new role models for the next generation of black women’ by The Times for their debut non-fiction title, Slay In Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible. Leading to a huge podcast on Audible, Slay: How to Succeed In Your Career; these ladies are leading the charge for the rising generation of Black female leaders.

We partnered with Audible to bring a special 60-minute live event all about the power of listening, as a superpower for making positive changes in your work and career. At the core of event was how listening can be a prerequisite for change and how listening to stories from authors like Yomi and Elizabeth, as well learning from the stories they explore in their book and podcast, facilitates change and understanding.

Let’s get into it!
