I’ll let you in on a little secret. One way I find guests for Rebel Intrapreneur is by searching on Amazon for books that are scheduled to be published in the next 30-60-90 days. I figure most authors want to promote their book at launch time and are very willing to get on a podcast to do so.
When I found Topsy Kola-Oyeneyin’s book, Unleash: The Blueprint for a Life that attracts Uncommon Opportunities, it wasn’t just the book that caught my eye, but the phrase from the book description, “You are not too young. At the age of twenty-eight, I became a General Manager in Nigeria’s oldest Bank — a role typically occupied by people in their fifties.”
The weight of that sentence would stop a team of oxen in its tracks.
It stopped me in mine.
Nigeria’s oldest bank?
How did she do that?
This episode is about that question, how did she do that?
The answer to that question is largely in her book.
Topsy Kola-Oyeneyin is a self-described intrapreneur and a partner at McKinsey & Company where she is the inaugural co-lead of the payments practice for Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
