“LEADING WITH PURPOSE: A JOURNEY OF TRANSFORMATION AND EMPOWERMENT IN THE MINING AND TECH INDUSTRY.”

As Featured:

As an entrepreneur and innovator, I have embarked on a transformative journey to reshape the mining and tech industry with a bold vision and unwavering determination. It is my firm belief that we have the power to create a future that goes beyond profit margins and embraces the principles of empowerment, sustainability, and innovation in Canada.

Throughout my journey, I have witnessed the immense potential that lies within the global mining and tech sectors. However, I have also seen the challenges and inefficiencies that persist. It is this realization that has fueled my passion to lead with purpose and prove that a woman-led company like ours continues to break barriers in profit and sustainability, leading to breakthrough innovations.

With that, here are some thoughts that I want to share with up-and coming leaders to aid with their own exciting journeys. Let’s start with innovation. This is the catalyst that fuels progress and enables us to push the boundaries of what is possible—to rethink traditional practices and explore alternative approaches. By embracing innovation, we were able to unlock the untapped potential within the battery metal material trading industry and drive meaningful change.

Meanwhile, entrepreneurship is the engine that propels these innovative ideas into action. It is about taking calculated risks, pursuing opportunities, and building ventures that have the potential to disrupt and revolutionize the industry.

Speaking of disruption, I, myself, am a disruptive thinker as I believe it is essential for driving innovation and staying ahead in a rapidly evolving industry. I love challenging assumptions, embracing unconventional ideas, and continuously seeking ways to improve and disrupt the norm. It is not about causing chaos but dismantling outdated paradigms and paving the way for new possibilities.

We also foster a culture of innovation within Daniola. I love an environment that encourages experimentation, values diverse perspectives, and rewards creativity. As a leader, I value the qualities of resilience, adaptability, and empathy. If my team flourishes, we can withstand anything.

My obsession is empowering others and building a legacy. That’s why I co-founded BIPOC Foundation, creating immense opportunities for 800+ and counting entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs, starting with the black community. We support initiatives for investments, mentorship, and workshops to nurture the next generation of innovators and foster an inclusive industry in Western Canada.

As for Daniola, I believe in a future where the mining and tech industry can drive positive change, empower communities, and leave a lasting legacy for generations to come. At Daniola, we are on a mission to turn this vision into a reality. By embracing a spirit of curiosity and continuous investing, we can drive innovation, transform industries, and create a brighter future for all.
