Njenga, a small business owner from Raleigh, North Carolina, gave remarks that chronicled her journey from employee, to business leader, to advocate in front of a crowd of 200+.
"Not only is Olalah a fierce small-business advocate unencumbered by political allegiances, she is the epitome of a small-business success story," stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken.
Njenga has served under two governors from two different political affiliations to the NCWorks Commission, filling a coveted seat on one of the state's most visible boards, where she represents the interests of North Carolina's 900,000+ small-business owners. She has also served in several public sector and non-profit board leadership roles over the 20 years she has lead her consulting firm.
"I am honored to receive this recognition from an organization like NSBA, we share the belief that how you treat people matters," stated Njenga. "My philosophy of advocacy is to do the most for the most without expectation, and it has served me well as an advocate. I urge all small-business owners to get involved in our political process, to start somewhere and to start today."
