Getting to Know Lameen

Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 2005 for which I worked for over 14 years, I have over twenty years’ experience in international development, primarily in Africa. M.B.A.-level educated in international management with a broad set of skills in international affairs, diplomacy, strategic leadership, performance improvement and client relations, I helped managers and institutions to positively impact many lives at a personal, organisational and sometimes continental level. I consider one of my greatest achievements managing a project to help Zambia treat cancer patients. 

In addition, I have written a few articles on leadership, management, fighting cancer and African development and have been a guest speaker on webinars providing solutions to entrepreneurs and the youth for Nigerian businesses post-COVID-19. Since August 2020, I have also been a guest on several podcast on finding your purpose in life.

My other passion includes coffee, for which I have been writing about under mypersonal blog www.fromcoffeewithlove.com since 2007, for which I was featured on CNNs website for Drinking Coffee in Vienna. In June 2019 I was invited by the International Coffee Organisation to participate in a EU Coffee Symposium on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, where I interacted with industry giants like Starbucks, Illy and Nestle to discuss the coffee value chain. I documented my experience in an article on how Africa can benefit from the coffee value chain.

I have recently moved to Dubai to start another journey where I plan to offer consultancy services across my many areas of my expertise, which I am blessed with but which include but are not limited to; coffee business set-up, cancer management, purpose coaching and mentoring the next generation.
