North Fulton Business Radio, Episode 492)
Kafi London with Smart Women on Fire and Gigi Miller of Vision Organizing were both speakers at SOAHR 2022. They joined host John Ray to chat about their respective paths and businesses. Kafi discussed the factors that lead to burnout and how she helps women recover from and prevent it. Gigi Miller aids her clients in organizing and decluttering, not just physically but in the mental and emotional clutter that accompanies it. They each shared the focus of their presentation at SOAHR2022, successful work with their clients, and much more.
This show was originally broadcast live from SOAHR 2022, the annual conference of SHRM-Atlanta, held at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia on July 27th and 28th, 2022.
Kafi London, Chief Energy Officer, Smart Women on Fire
Kafi spent 27 years climbing the corporate ladder working “in the trenches” of the fast-paced, high-demand world of management consulting supporting global training and organizational change initiatives. Past clients include The Coca-Cola Company, Hewlett-Packard, Kimberly-Clark and Shell Chemical Company.
After almost three decades of disregarding her own needs, life caught up with her and she lost the drive and passion to be successful. Overwhelmed, overworked and overweight, she eventually paid the price…BURNOUT!
Fast forward, she is now helping ambitious professionals avoid the same mistakes.
Known by her clients as the Fire Starter, she reignites those who feel their flame is starting to fade.
Leadership is intense at the best of times and despite being resilient, even the best leaders struggle with being fully self-expressed, energized and inspired to do their best work…and Kafi teaches her clients just how to do this.
Born and raised in London, Kafi now lives in Atlanta and is known for her work as a top speaker, facilitator, coach, and mentor.
She loves leading results-based workshops and transformational experiences around the world that help ambitious people play bigger.
In addition to being an expert facilitator, Kafi supports clients through one-to-one coaching, group programs, intensive experiences and transformational retreats.
Kafi uniquely blends her expertise as a management consultant, certified fitness professional and work-life balance expert to help driven, high-performers get out of their own way!
Kafi has proudly co-authored three books:
- 303 Solutions for Reaching Goals and Living Your Dreams,
- 303 Solutions for Communicating Effectively and Getting Results
- 303 Solution for Overcoming Challenges.
Most recently Kafi had a spotlight appearance at the She Means Business Female Founders’ Dinner hosted by Facebook and Civic Dinners.
