Reine Mbang Essobmadje: The Entrepreneur’s Alphabet

It’s not every day that you encounter an actual alphabet for entrepreneurs where each letter stands for one useful recommendation-unless you have the opportunity to interview our Global Executive MBA Alumna Reine Mbang Essobmadje

Aside from providing a unique view into the life of an entrepreneur, Reine is the founder of Evolving Consulting,a digital consultancy company based in Cameroon and in France that provides consultancy, coding, strategy and marketing services in many projects within the ICT value chain in Europe as well as in Africa.

Reine identifies herself as both European and African and has been also actively working with scientific and women-specific organizations throughout the globe. She is one of the ambassadors of Women in Africa Initiative, a global think-thank promoting the economic development and support of high potential African Women. While active in many transversal fields of action, she also maintains a special focus on youth and women entrepreneurship, workforce diversity, and women in STEM.

As you can already observe, her plate is pretty full. However, she did take some time to share her story with us, and we hope that you enjoy reading about Reine’s inspiring story and her useful insights for other women in the workforce.

María Escuer: Developing a new way of recruiting, retaining and assisting leaders

At IE, we pride ourselves on having an international and diverse Alumni Community, where there are many inspiring stories of professional and personal journeys to be told. Women, of course, is a big part of that community, providing a vivid image on how to thrive in professional and personal life.

This week we have interviewed our Executive MBA Alumna María Escuer, the Founder of Leadem, an innovative company created to develop a new way of recruiting and retaining talent. The Leadem Method uses a specific approach to retaining talent which consists on the 3 different values of the candidate: professional, personal and societal values; what is called a Leadem Triangle.

María’s story includes several countries stretching from Spain to Algeria, involves making decisions that your mother might not always approve (like resigning your job at the European Union), taking bold steps in your life (like moving to a foreign country with kids and starting a new professional community), not having fear for having variations in your bank account as an entrepreneur and how sometimes we need to take a step back to re-evaluate.

We hope that you enjoy reading about María’s inspiring story and her useful insights for other women in the workforce.
