Service to humankind. Gender Parity. An informed people. Equality of mankind.

These words begin to describe me and the lenses through which I see the world.

I am Dr. Elisha Attai, a Media, Communications and Public Relations Practitioner and Publisher.

I am a strong advocate for the development and advancement of the African woman. I am the President/Founder of the African Women in Leadership Organisation (AWLO) and the initiator/organiser of the famed African Women in Leadership Conference (AWLC), a global movement of Women of African descent changing the narratives of leadership in the world.

I hold Master degrees in Public Administration and Music Technology with several years experience in public relations, music management, brand and business development /consultancy. I am the Managing Director/CEO of Studio 115 Integrated Services, a Communication, Media/Public Relation and Brand Development Consultancy Services Company, producing premium content for Mnet (Africa Magic) for years. Elisha Attai is the Executive Director of HDF Projects International, a Leadership and Human Capacity Development Consultancy Services Company. My proven track record in transforming brands for success has shown in the phenomenal growth and relevance of the African Women Leadership Conference over the last nine years.

I am an indigene of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. I am passionate about the development and advancement of my state and generously contribute my quota by applying my vast knowledge and experience in promoting the positive image of my state at home and abroad.

I have strong Christian ethics and immerse myself with many faith based activities. I am also involved with several charitable organisations and an active supporter and friend of LittleBigSouls, a charity for the care of premature babies born in Africa. I have professional associations with a number of organisations such as the Nigeria British Chamber of Commerce, the Nigerian American Chamber of Commerce in Atlanta, the Performing Musician Association of Nigeria (PMAN) and the South African Culture and Tourism Bureau just to mention a few.

My philosophy of life is one that sees the world as big enough for everyone and a life dedidicated to giving through service and hardwork. It is evident in my personal motto – #ILiveSoICanGive – and my adoption of the SDG Goals; 5-Gender Equality, 8-Decent Work and Economic Growth, 10-Reduced Inequalities among countries, 16-Peace, Justice and strong institutions and 17-Global Partnership for sustainable development.

I am a recipient of numerous awards globally. I was recently honoured by the Global Oved Dei Seminary & University in the United States with a Honorary Doctorate Degree for my commitment to gender-parity. The United Nations Women National Committee Canada honoured me as their Ambassador for my contributions to gender equality and women empowerment over the years.

I am a honarary citizen of the State of Georgia, USA, an ardent sports fan and I love football. I live in Lagos with my beautiful wife Eno and four lovely children.

Now you know me. Can I know you?
