INSPIRE • CONNECT • ACTIVATE • TRANSFORM
Liz Ngonzi believes in the power of stories to transform people’s lives! She is an international executive coach, educator, social entrepreneur, and speaker, and she helps purpose-driven leaders worldwide to clarify, develop and share their stories in order to increase their impact. She believes that when you share your story, you invite others to learn what makes you unique, and you inspire them to support you…thereby amplifying your voice and enhancing your visibility.
As an Executive Coach, through her firm, Liz Ngonzi Transforms, Ms. Ngonzi enables impact-driven leaders and entrepreneurs worldwide to define and tell their stories, accomplish their objectives, and align their paycheck with their purpose. Through the Bank of America Institute for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Cornell University, she facilitates online courses for women entrepreneurs on their venture creation journey.
As an award-winning Adjunct Assistant Professor of Fundraising at New York University, and as a trainer to organizations such as Candid, Cornell University Alumni Affairs and Development, and Vital Voices Global Partnerships, Ms. Ngonzi has delivered courses and training to thousands of professionals from organizations on six continents, teaching them how to activate their supporters through effective storytelling and fundraising.
As a social entrepreneur, last year Ms. Ngonzi founded The International Social Impact Institute, which aims to amplify the voices of social impact leaders from historically marginalized communities (in the US and around the world), facilitate interactions among such leaders and assist in training more of them.
Finally, as an international public speaker, she frequently addresses audiences about leadership, philanthropy, personal branding, digital storytelling, and digital innovations facilitating social impact. She has spoken on these topics before audiences at ENGIE North America; Harvard University; JCC Association of North America; McCann Worldgroup; McGraw-Hill Financial; the Obama Foundation; SXSW; Syracuse University; TEDxCornellU; UNICEF; WeWork; and the Woodrow Wilson Center, among other venues.
