Are you a community leader, event manager, program designer, family officer, or HR and development manager?

Your mission is to engage your audience, deliver your organization's promise, show what your brand stands for and guide your community to reach its full potential.

I'm here to help you achieve this goal by sharing my professional and personal experiences through keynotes, panel discussions, workshops, and training programs.


Marketing strategies for greater visibility and business growth.

Alignment of business, purpose and lifestyle for small businesses.

Turning dual career challenges into a successful portable business.

Women empowerment through entrepreneurship.

Social impact and social entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship and personal growth.


Within these topics, I tailor my speaking engagements, workshops, and training programs to your specific needs (see examples below).

Whether it's a 30-minute session for hundreds of participants or an immersive six-month collaboration for a select group, whether it's offline, online, or a hybrid event, my primary goal is to provide your community not just with inspiration, but also with the CLARITY needed to TAKE ACTION.

Schedule a call to let me know more about what experience you want to create for your community and how I can help you:

Saliha Khanum

I used to think that I could not create a business and only people with certain credentials and lifestyle could do it. When I heard Amel speak I started believing that it was possible and went on a journey to commit to my vision despite all the highs and lows of life.

Sharoya Ham

Prior to hearing Amel speak, I could not see myself as a business owner. Amel helped me completely shift my perception and fears around entrepreneurship. I also got a clear framework to define my business and make sure that it is aligned with my lifestyle. Amel gave me the guts to believe I could do it, and I did it!

Annette Van der Feltz

Amel completely disrupted (in a good way) the comfortable path to “kind of somewhere” which I was happily skipping along. After her presentation, I did some major thinking as her insights helped me adjust my pitch to effectively reach new clients.

Cécile Cuvilliez

Sometimes there are encounters like this that happen at the right time, words that resonate in your head at important times. Amel’s presentation at the French Morning event helped me reflect on my journey and encouraged me to make myself a priority. I could finally put my vision into words and much more. I attended her speaking engagements three years in a row, and I got so much energy out of it each time. Amel is a real ray of sunshine.

Keynotes presentations and panels

“When you can sell ideas, you can change the world”

My personal story to entrepreneurship and social impact:

I share my story living in Uganda at age of fourteen that led me to launch my first social impact venture, fall in love with marketing, leave my family at age sixteen to move abroad and live on my own, start my career and then build the business I have today while living across four continents. I use my story as a thread to trigger mindset shifts and provide key tips for the audience to take action, bring their vision to reality and make the world a better place.

Depending on your audience and your needs, my keynotes and contributions to panel discussions can be adapted.

"Not only Amel has a vast knowledge on marketing and entrepreneurship, but she also really knows how to bring it across well and make it FUN! We had such great feedback from our participants. It was her passion and energy, also sharing her personal story and experience, that made the whole session very engaging. Our scholars will definitely benefit from this.

"I was very happy to work with Amel for two years in a row. She adapted her training and coaching program to our members’ needs. It has been very successful in inspiring them but also guiding them in an effective way to find innovative ways of launching their portable businesses.

Know more about me

Hi! This is Amel Derragui

I am a global citizen raised across various cultures. Since the age of fourteen, I have been passionate about entrepreneurship and social impact.

After a corporate career in sales and advertising, I launched my portable business as a marketing consultant for global organizations, which allowed me to move from one country to another and gave me more freedom with my time.

A few years later, I decided to share what I learned along the way and the methodology I developed for growing a business that aligns with your needs. My proven framework has since helped hundreds of solopreneurs and small business owners around the world start, grow or scale their businesses.

I've spoken at international stages for various organizations like Forbes, the World Food Program, and the Ban Ki-Moon Foundation, covering marketing, entrepreneurship, women's empowerment, and social impact topics.
