Elevated into organisation-wide leadership roles at an early age ranging from enterprise, NGO’s and movements, Laura Kuimba Yu has been unveiled as a prodigy in motivating people to greater heights, accomplishing goals from both a corporate and personal perspective.
Building a multi-national million-dollar company in the tech sector servicing clients like McDonalds, Fujitsu and Groupon, Zurich Insurance and other billion-dollar organizations by the age of 30, Laura’s passionate about the intersection of technology, entrepreneurship and mental wellbeing, speaking at prestigious conferences around the world.

She’s also the youngest ever board member & first female Chairperson for New Zealand-based World Outreach International, one of the oldest NGOs in the world.
Hailing from Zimbabwe, Laura knows what it’s like not having the right empowerment to advance oneself, having seen first-hand the cycles of poverty. Giving someone a fish, feeds them for a day. Laura wants to teach people how to fish – to feed their family, community, and future generations. Her exposure to transformative technologies & impact-driven innovation during her travels around the world has only cemented her calling.
On top of her skills in digital marketing and entrepreneurship, Laura has also ventured into the fields of coaching and facilitative learning.

If you were to ask for her “report card” when she meets her Creator? She would ask for an extended stay on Earth – to instill courage in one more girl, inspire confidence in one more woman, and impact change in one more community.
Laura is based in Kuala Lumpur where she has lived for over 10 years with her husband, Kenneth Yu.
