Sandra Nelson is a qualified linguist, who is also a well established financial adviser, a certified business analyst, an author of bestselling book The Giant within Us, transformational speaker, a minister and the founder of Lifteffects.

The busy career woman, from East Ham, was also nominated this year as a finalist for both DIVA Ambassador and DIVA Inspirational leader, going on to win the first.

She said: “Through Lifteffects, I and my team have created an outlet to communicate strength, energy, positivity, purpose and passion to those that they work with,” she said.

“Over the years the team has successfully hosted a number of life-transforming conferences and events.”

The mum of two has featured in many publications and was recently interviewed on TV channel London Live to talk about the biggest London ladies conference.

But some of her best memories are of helping a cancer patient and supporting children out of poverty.

She added: “Every moment of Lifteffects is the best moment for me because we focus on how one can give back and what one can do to help.”
