Barbara Omowunmi Lawrence

CEO Insolitus Nigeria Ltd.

I set up Insolitus Nigeria Ltd, an Organisation & Talent Development Consultancy in 2008, after 21 years of extensive experience and career with the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd (SPDC).

I joined Shell as an Environmentalist and held various positions including Issues management Adviser at the Shell Centre, London; Head, External Relations Strategy & Planning, Transformation Manager, Communication & Change Manager and the Regional Organizational Effectiveness, Change & Planning Manager, Shell Africa.

My Shell experience exposed me to various Organisation and Talent Development skills including but not limited to: Change Management, ODA, Training, Teambuilding and Facilitation and Coaching. It also included helping the leadership to drive and move change program, including embedding the 9 Planets (Leadership Behaviours) hence extensive networking with directors and other senior leaders in the company and around the Shell Group worldwide.

I have a passion for Personal accountability and I am committed to driving it amongst youths and their parents., through Act Right, a Youth outreach initiative I founded.

My purpose in life is “to inspire and motivate others to be the best they can be”, hence my first book “Nuggets of Self-Development” was published in 2010. I am currently working on my second, The Path to Personal Accountability”

All these experiences have helped to build Insolitus where I Consult, Train and Coach individuals to be better than before.
