Meeting of Minds

May 29 2021 • 24 mins

Funmi Ljadu spoke to Remi Ray about her imperfect yet inspiring journey towards thriving while neurodiverse.

Remi was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of 19. In the early years of her professional career, she was bullied by senior management staff. As a result, she initially carried a high level of shame that many with a learning disability in corporate environments do. Professionally, she eventually turned to entrepreneurship feeling she had no other choice.

Today, Remi is recognised as one of the top 50 most influential neurodivergent women in the UK. DShe is also a neurodiversity coach specialising in leadership and performance. She prides herself on supporting her clients to reach their highest potential by helping them rediscover their value, learn how to lead with their strengths by breaking down barriers caused by common stigmas associated with being neurodiverse. Remi’s coaching practice and work at the Diverse Creative CIC is legacy work centred on empowerment and healing.
