Closing Keynote Speaker

Mpumi Nobiva

International Speaker and Communication Strategist Mpumi Nobiva, has spoken at the White House, congressional fundraisers, corporate functions and nonprofit initiatives in several countries. Mpumi grew up in South Africa, and, at age nine, lost her mother to HIV/Aids, leaving her orphaned like millions of other children in Sub-Saharan Africa. Reared in material poverty but spiritual wealth by her grandmother, she excelled in the first class of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa before coming to the United States to study. She currently holds a master's degree in Strategic Communications from High Point University and serves as the first alumnus on the Board of Directors of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for girls in South Africa. As NationBuilder's first Leader in Residence, Mpumi is developing the digital infrastructure for Share Your Story Africa - an initiative inspired by her advocacy work uniting youth against HIV/AIDS and domestic violence in South Africa - all while sharing her powerful story at events around the world. She also is experienced in hosting events and facilitating workshops.
