Glory Enyinnaya is a researcher, writer and consultant who is passionate about inspiring positive change and making a difference in Africa and the world by creating, disseminating and utilizing cutting-edge knowledge about management and business through her work in CRLE and on her website http://the-change-catalyst.com. She has a First Class Honors degree in Accounting from the University of Nigeria. She also has the Prosci Change Management certification and was certified as a Banking Industry practitioner in Accenture. She is a member of the Association of Change Management Practitioners (ACMP) and is currently studying for an Executive M.B.A at the Lagos Business School.
Upon graduation, she undertook a one-year stint in the National Youth Service Corps where she was assigned to work in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (E.F.C.C). While serving at the E.F.C.C, she developed an interest in corruption, its causes, effects and solutions. Her interest led her to write a book in 2007 entitled "Corruption and its effects on the Nigerian society".
After E.F.C.C, she worked as an analyst at a top investment bank in Nigeria – FBN Capital. After this, she worked as a Finance & Performance Management analyst and a Talent & Organization Performance consultant with the global management consulting firm of Accenture. From her project experiences with Nigerian private institutions such as Union Bank, Mansard Insurance, Access Bank and the Dangote Group as well as public service institutions such as the Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N), the Federal Inland Revenue Service (F.I.R.S), the Securities and Exchange Commission (S.E.C), the National Health Insurance Scheme (N.H.I.S) and the World Bank, she developed a keen interest in the potential of change management as a tool for bringing about transformation in Africa. Her interest led her to obtain the Prosci Change Management certification, join the Association of Change Management Practitioners and start the Change Catalyst blog in 2012.
Since then, she has worked as an independent Change Management consultant on technology-implementation projects across West Africa. From her experience leading large-scale, complex multi-market change programmes involving multiple stakeholders and multiple geographies, she has developed a model for managing change called "The SIMPLER Way." The model is the basis for the second book which she is currently writing.
Her work in CRLE helps her make a vital link between changing Africa and the ethical leadership which the continent so desperately needs if she is to fulfil her potential and take her place on the global scene.
