Dr Mary Mkandawire

Leadership Consultant


I help leaders and organizations create high-performing cultures that empower diverse teams to succeed in today’s complex global markets.

I grew up with leadership and change. I was a global, multicultural citizen before globalization and multiculturalism were a thing. My father was a diplomat and by the time I was 10 years of age, I had lived in 6 countries on 3 continents. In adulthood, I have continued to travel widely for education, work, and pleasure.

Leaders today increasingly must navigate uncertainty in a world where the pace of change is exponential and where change is happening in a global context. I have learned first-hand how to successfully navigate change and navigate between cultures, and I help my clients and their organisations to do the same.

I am a medical doctor by background, specialized in Public Health. My current professional focus is as a Leadership Consultant, Corporate Trainer, Executive Coach, Keynote Speaker, and Author.
