The author of several books including “Beyond Limits” and “Wait on the Lord”, Sanmi Lami Abayilo (Nee Gamde) found expression by writing. As a child, Lami loved to read; her reading stimulated her imaginative mind and led her to a new passion – story telling which her children still enjoy to this day. In her quest to share her experience and inspire people, she began writing and publishing her works.
A childhood experience that inspired and led her to this part of her destiny was a poster she saw on the wall which read, “when all things come to a halt, faith goes killing giants.” This was her first encounter with faith – the foundation upon which her life is built: faith in different dimensions – in God, self and humanity.
Lami is passionate about inspiring people so as to bring out the best in them and enable them
to attain the different levels of success for which they have been designed to achieve, hence her
passion for motivational speaking and life coaching. She is currently working on her next two books due to be out in July and August respectively. Her writing focuses on fiction and non-fiction.
Lami is a graduate of B. Tech Hons. Microbiology from the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi. In her desire to continually improve herself, she enrolled with the University of Manchester, where she gained a Post Graduate degree in Human Resource Management and Development – specialising in Training and Development. She went further to pursue another post-graduate degree in Business Administration (MBA) specialising in Human Resource Management. She also has an Executive Management Diploma from the highly rated Cornell
Johnson’s University (Ivy League) USA. Lami is the Director of the yearly global event tagged “Wealth Connect,” a conference focused on building sustainable growth and business operations in the borderless world. Lami also organizes and speaks at international and domestic conferences and seminars.
