Elena Carole Williams

Elena Williams is a former British diplomat who was first posted to South Africa in 2009, and has boomeranged back and forth since then. Elena is an expert in international trade, economic and business development, and has been passionately supporting the growth of African businesses, and the economic ambitions of African governments. She describes herself as an Afrophile, and the proud product of Jamaican parents who instilled in her a love for West Indies cricket, whilst friends and colleagues agree she is an enigmatic renaissance woman with the enviable ability to make circles bigger.
Elena's favourite TED Talk is 'The key to transforming yourself', by Robert Greene (TEDx Brixton, 2013)
