About the speaker

Awura Abena Simpe (1988) is the founder and creative director of The Creative Women Collective.

After years of advising and litigating for creative individuals and companies as a lawyer, Awura took a leap of faith. She started CWC inspired by her closest creative girlfriends, who’s courage sparked a fearlessness within herself. In her childhood Awura struggled to combine the academic with the creative, and - out of fear - chose her brain over her heart. The contact with her creative clients didn’t satisfy her creative hunger. After 5 years of working in the legal sector, she turned a 180 degrees and jumped into the world of creative entrepreneurship.

Thanks to her legal as well as creative background, Awura is an expert in advising people about the business aspects of creativity. Furthermore Awura is highly qualified in hosting, developing and - together with her team - organizing events with impact.
