Julie-Anne Black is here today with Nkandu Beltz. Nkandu discovered from an early age that it’s in these little acts of kindness that we each have the power to make a positive and lasting change in the world. For over two decades, this passionate human rights activist has been a voice for the voiceless, and has found the courage to stand up for those who could not stand up for themselves and yet she still has so much to give.
Growing up in Zambia, Nkandu was acutely aware of the social disparity she and many others faced. The injustice was overwhelming for the free spirited young girl, and not something she could easily ignore. Encouraged by her father to stand up for what she believed in, Nkandu began petitioning for girl child rights. She was just ten years old. Making change in the world is in everything she does. Nkandu is devoted to helping others live a better life. Her incredible journey has led her across the globe to Australia, where she now lives.
Nkandu is one of Australia’s most sought after female leaders and inspirational speaker. In 2015 she was named as one of the top 20 renowned speakers of Mind and Its Potential and was selected as a Young Social Pioneer with Foundation for Young Australians in 2012. She won the Pinnacle Professional of the Year Award in 2013 and the Women in Leadership Award in 2014.
Among her greatest accomplishments are the opportunities to meet and interview a number of important social leaders, including his Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Inspired by her mother’s determination to provide for her family in a tough economic climate, Nkandu believes that we all have the power make the best of any situation. Throughout life, we are confronted by our own set of challenges, but it is how we choose to act in these situations that leads us to greatness. The key is never giving up. As a member of UN women, Nkandu is particularly passionate about empowering women with this message.
After sharing her own personal experience facing up to social injustice in her book I Have The Power, Nkandu brings us the Fierce & Fabulous series: Fierce & Fabulous The Feminine Force of Success and Fierce & Fabulous Phenomenal Women in Network Marketing. A third series is in the making.
Nkandu has brought together 16 women from divers background and they run workshops and seminars to empower others by giving them practical tools for business and personal leadership.
She is also the author of
• I Have The Power-Unlocking Your Potential To Change The World.
