Words Women and Wisdom Show

Show Host

Born an enterprising, forward-thinking and original "Avant-Garde" female, I believe in living a mission-inspired and purposeful life!

I am passionate about inspiring women to live into their potential and elevate their confidence, especially visionary female leaders who are looking to scale up their business venture. My work is primarily with Founders, Leaders and professionals (6-figure+), and mission-inspired businesses or social enterprise groups, those who empower other women are especially exciting to work with. After serving on Boards, and as a corporate VP and Director, with 8 start-up experiences - evolution and constant expansion are keys to life being interesting and purposeful.

My expertise is with:
* Women's Growth
* Confident Conversations
* Mentorship
* Knowledge sharing through speaking, writing, radio, coaching, mentorship and women's resource groups.

Teaching women to Flourish in business is a passion. I am a Speaker, Author, Coach, and Mentorship Chair, with my book “Words, Women and Wisdom: The Modern Art of Confident Conversations” coming soon (anticipated release - summer 2018), and host for the Words, Women and Wisdom Show (BBS Radio) to elevate confident living. When women elevate their confidence, are heard and valued, they make more impact, have more fun and greater success in business! Professionally I am a Certified Executive Coach, Chartered HR Professional and Reiki Practitioner, Certified in Emotional Intelligence - on the team for the Coaches Business School.

I believe...

Are you ready to elevate your confidence - you're in the right place...

Warmly, Yvonne

Guest Biography

Adora Nwofor is a Comedian, Model, and advocate for women. She is the Founder of the Calgary Women's March, which had over 5,000 people attend in 2018.

I saw Adora speak recently, and can share that she is certainly unique with an expansive personaliity. Standing over 6 feet tall she commands the stage as a comedian, MC, public speaker, and more. She can be seen hosting events such as folk fest Cariwest, femme wave, as well as the Grand marshal of the March for Women (2017 to 2019).

Just when you think she has a niche she pops up as MC for Canada Day 150 and Culture days or for the University of Calgary, as key note speaker for diversity days. Adora's comedy has a feminist POV with a dark twist that has been labeled by some as shock wit.Learn more about the march here:…/ca…/calgary-womens-march-2018-1.4496431

As quoted in Avenue Magazine: Standing over six feet tall, Adora Nwofor, a comedian and feminist activist, is a self-professed “giant” with a personality to match. But compared to her raunchy “shock-wit” humour, her style isn’t that outlandish. She juxtaposes classic cuts and clean lines with bold Nigerian-traditional patterns and bright colours, especially her signature blue. “I tend to give people anxiety just by walking into a room in jeans and a sweater,” Nwofor says. “I’m kind of sensory overload.”
