I have gone through the book ‘The Leading Lady, Her Life and Influence.’ and I find it very insightful and beneficiary to all ladies who aspire to lead or are already at the helm of affairs in all spheres of life. I have been married to Pastor Marjorie for 36years and we are privileged to lead together since 1995 till date. I see in the book ‘The Leading Lady, Her Life and Influence a sincere presentation of her years of leadership in the various organisations she has led including a Merchant Bank subsidiary.
She has highlighted the principles leading to her success in the corporate world, Church and service to God and humanity in Europe, Africa, Canada and the United States of America. She makes it clear that focus, forthrightness, determination and fair-play are very instrumental to effectiveness and efficiency as a leading lady.
Pastor Marjorie has written several books including Children Are Like Olive Plants, Overcoming in Gilgal, 33 Tips for Single Ladies, A-Z of the Multipurpose Woman, No by More Curse, Designed for the Palace and Inspirational Business Ideas which have been a strong foundation for writing her new book ‘ The Leading Lady, her Life and Influence.’ She enumerates the importance of getting a life in the midst of a busy leading life in her corporate world creating a beneficial balance for optimum productivity.
I recommend ‘The Leading Lady, Her Life and Influence’ to everyone especially ladies who aspire to make positive impact in the corporate world and society at large.

When you think of business, social and civic leadership, what image comes to mind? Is it a man in a suit, one with a stethoscope around his neck, or perhaps a clergyman with a turned-back collar? Growing up, I would have probably conjured up in my mind a mental picture similar to the ones hitherto described as well. But today, my mind thinks differently. Women have made incredible strides not only in the business space but in every industry arena.
Although women have made significant strides, we still are underrepresented. This trend is changing, though.
In this book, pastor Marjorie Esomowei presents a compelling case of why a woman should arise to take their place in leadership without compromising their femininity. She takes an intelligent approach that I believe will inspire women from all walks of life and encourage them to be a catalyst for change.
While women have been and continue to play a critical role within the workforce, it’s only recently that women in leadership have been embraced as a human resource preference. The data is clear that organizations with significant representation of women outperform those with a more homogenous leadership, i.e., C-Suites, board membership, etc.
Additionally, it has been proven that when women are supported in their quest to progress, families, communities, industries, and eventually nations move too (e.g., China). To fight for women is to fight for humanity, and to unleash the potential in women is to release the potential in society.
It is encouraging to observe that women are still succeeding despite gender-discriminating barriers.
Using biblical examples and recent case studies, pastor Esomowei skillfully pulls out principles that will help women redefine how to show up unapologetically powerful in businesses, ministries, industries, and government as a solution to world problems. She is a gritty, honest, and dynamic writer, and I am confident you will enjoy her fresh perspective.
