About

My name is Seyi Falade and I'm a 'go-getter'. I like challenges, big or small. I find them to be cleverly disguised opportunities. I am a news junkie. I believe it strengthens my ability to spot and recognize trends. I come from the b-school of thought. I approach situations analytically but I have a strong creative streak. I think with a global mindset. I have traveled, lived, worked, and studied in various countries. I lead international and culturally diverse teams effectively and manage gracefully. I am always open to learning about new opportunities or projects.
