Happy Holiday’s to everyone. It’s been a great time of rest–God’s rest. Dovetales is back this Sunday, December 16, 2018 to interview a visionary, a genius and a woman who does nothing without consulting Christ first. How ironic, because this mother, wife, author, speaker who inspires immigrant women and leaders to strive for excellence is also an award-winning lawyer.Yes, even counselors need council! It is no doubt to me why the Nigerian Lawyers Association named her Trailblazer of the Year, she is also 2018 recipient of the Face2Face Africa Corporate Leadership Award, Managing Director and Chief Anti-Bribery Officer at Citigroup, Inc while overseeing Citi’s global Anti-Bribery program which develops and maintains an enterprise-wide framework for compliance with anti-bribery laws and regulations by US,UK and 160 countries where Citi does business. I am learning, in life, that promotion, knowledge, understanding and discernment can only come when one is in close proximity to Christ. Join us to discover how this extraordinary woman, Chinwe Esimai has found safety, comfort, direction and peace in the arms of her counselor, governor, gardener and provider Jesus Christ. To God be the everlasting Glory–forever, Amen.
