About the event

Visual Storyteller and Bestselling Author, Lola Akinmade Åkerström joins IWIB for community and  conversation.

The power of asking “Why not?” - In a world that forces us to be one-dimensional, asking “why not” can help us reflect, understand each other better, challenge the status quo, and personally motivate us, when doors are metaphorically closed to us.

Award-winning author and photographer Lola Akinmade Åkerström explores culture through food, tradition, and lifestyle for high profile publications such as National Geographic Traveler, BBC, The Guardian, Lonely Planet, amongst others.

She has collaborated with many well-known brands - from Mercedes Benz and Dove to Intrepid Travel and National Geographic Channel and is the author of two books – award-winning Due North & bestselling LAGOM: Swedish Secret of Living Well. The accomplishments go on - editor-in-chief of Slow Travel Stockholm, founder of NordicTB Collective - which brings together the top professional travel bloggers and digital storytellers from the Nordics, Travel Photographer of the Year Bill Muster Award recipient and was honored with a MIPAD 100 (Most Influential People of African Descent) Award within media and culture.  Her photography is represented by National Geographic Image Collection.

Lola - "I’ve always been an audacious person in the way I move. I never let anyone else’s limitations become my own limitations.  I also audaciously ask for what I want or deserve at this stage of my career. Whether it’s asking for more pay or simply making some bold asks."

(Please remember to bring your lunch (coffee, tea, water and a small sweet will be provided).

A conversation you dare not miss!
