What if you could change the world, where would you begin? Would you choose to build roads, or would you build more walls? Would you find the tools you need, or would your expectations be cut short? When it’s your turn, would you be ready?
Every citizen of the world deserves to be empowered to function at full capacity, regardless of their social and personal limitations… every citizen deserves to rise above the ills of the environment they didn’t create for themselves and break their limitations… every citizen deserves to dream real dreams, just as this is my dream!
My name is Aanu and I am not just a dreamer. I really believe in the human capacity to break through barriers – real or imagined. My passion lies in helping others unlock their intelligence and equipping them to create the outcomes that matter to them. I enjoy working with individuals and teams who want to live and work at their best in a constantly changing world by inspiring the Agile way of life and systemic coaching.
Woman to woman
As an empowered woman, I move through the world in search of other woman to light up. My soul draws strength from serving and lifting others up, touching the world one heart at a time. This passion for women empowerment and development is what inspired me to launch the Women in Agile Nigeria and Dallas Fort Worth Texas USA Chapters.
The initiative connects women in Agile with resources to help them grow through community engagement, training, workshop, coaching and mentoring. It uses its platform to harness the collective wisdom, experience & energy of inspirational women to support and give back to its growing community of women.

What people say about me
Aanu has a strong passion for Agile and helping others. Not only does Aanu bring a strong level of enthusiasm and professional experience, but Aanu’s friendly and open disposition also enhances any environment. I’m also impressed with Aanu’s commitment to leveraging Agile to help Africa further unleash its tremendous potential.
Aanu you are the best Agile Coach I have worked with. The Credit Path teams are matured agile teams today, all credit goes to you for making several agile process improvements. The agile ceremonies were long and ineffective before she started with us. A great team player, balances between tech and business teams, creating a friendly environment where every associate can flourish. Being a scrum master Manager, she has several other responsibilities but is always on top of things.
Aanu is strongly focused on building a culture with agile at the heart of it. Aanu stands out with her ability to dive in, diagnose, and works with the team to put together an action plan to strengthen unhealthy teams and situations. She is also passionate about teaching & coaching – sharing her wisdom and experiences to raise up other scrum masters, engineers, and product partners around her.
I have known Aanu for more than 2 years now as part of being active in the agile community in the DFW area. Aanu strives for excellence in anything she is involved. Her helping and kind nature brings the best in people around her. She is a budding star in the agile community. I look forward to seeing Aanu achieving her dream, vision and purpose of bringing agile to her home country and her home continent.
