Certified Leadership Coach, Consultant, Speaker and McKinsey Alumnus
Yewande Faloyin, Founder & CEO of OTITỌ, Yewande is a Certified Coach, with a corporate background in consulting, finance, and technology. Prior to founding OTITỌ, she held leadership positions at McKinsey & Company and Morgan Stanley, leading multi-disciplinary teams to deliver business-critical solutions to senior clients. This passion and aptitude for helping organisations and leaders solve their most difficult problems and experiencing, first hand, the power of leadership in achieving significant success led to her founding OTITỌ.
As a British-Nigerian woman, Yewande was blessed to experience the benefits of a fulfilling childhood, growing up across 4 countries on 3 continents. Her solid education led to her gaining admission to Imperial College London, a world-leading science & technology university. After graduating from Imperial College with a Computing degree, Yewande started her career as a software developer at Morgan Stanley, developing bespoke financial solutions for the bank's clients. She quickly advanced into the bank's Prime Brokerage department and as a Vice President took on the responsibility of delivering solutions to multi-billion-dollar Hedge Fund clients across Europe and Asia. From Morgan Stanley, she joined McKinsey & Company as a consultant, advising C-Suite clients on management-critical strategic problems. She took on the opportunity to do more of the work she loved, primarily focusing on digital, healthcare, and banking engagements across Africa and Europe, and ended her tenure at the firm as a Global Digital McKinsey Learning Manager.
Through this unique and diverse upbringing, she learnt that leadership does not come in any one form, but that what makes a leader exceptional lies in their uniqueness and ability to step into their greatness. This underlying belief led to her founding OTITỌ, where she helps her clients discover their unique strengths and use it to their advantage. She does this through her work as a leadership coach, consultant, and speaker, as well as in strategic advisory positions across public, private, and social sector organisations.

CONSULTING | TEAM EFFECTIVENESS
FROM HIGH-PERFORMING INDIVIDUALS TO A COHESIVE EFFECTIVE UNIT
"Yewande is one in a million & distinctive in at least two ways. First, she drives teams and organisations to real solutions quickly, so you can see a very clear difference between the before and after. Second, the ‘how’ matters as much as the ‘what’: Yewande is gifted at working with others and bringing the best in each team member"
— Alexandre Martinez, Global Director of Learning & Leadership Development, McKinsey & Co
