What you'll do

Reinvention is essential for personal growth and evolution, but it's not always easy to achieve—especially now. To help you navigate this process, I'll share the transformational blueprint from my 100-day journey to becoming both the first African woman and the first black woman to compete in the Olympic skeleton—a sport I had no prior experience in and one in which athletes hurl themselves headfirst on a sled down an icy hill at 80 miles an hour.

In this interactive experience designed to invite courage and resilience, I'll teach you the valuable lessons I learned in those 100 days—a time when I had returned to competitive sport after a nearly ten-year retirement. Find a comfy spot in your house and I'll walk you through how I reignited my original dream of competing in track and field at the Summer Olympics. Then, we'll explore different ways of overcoming fears, defying naysayers, and shattering perceptions.

Imagine your limitless possibilities with an Olympian as I confidently guide you through this experience and help you push your limits and find your inner strength.

In 2018, I made Olympic history at the Winter Games, becoming the first African and Black woman to compete in Olympic skeleton. When I discovered that no African woman had ever competed in the Olympic skeleton, I saw an opportunity to take action.

I'm currently training for the 2022 Olympic Games and I also inspire audiences around the world. I've appeared in leading media outlets such as CNN, NBC, ESPN, USA Today, Essence, Forbes, and Sports Illustrated and the New York Times has hailed me as “a role model for Africa and beyond.”

Audiences have described my live experiences as being “captivating” and “highly actionable” with a "contagious energy and passion.” And now, I'm bringing my inspirational tips directly to your home with this Online Experience!

What an amazing experience! I booked this session for my team as we’re going through our own reinvention, and Simi’s talk left us energized and inspired. Simi’s story was engaging, and left us feeling like we could dream without limits and break new ground. Highly recommended!

Simidele and I had our call in my morning before work, and her fascinating life story motivated me to open up to new experiences throughout the day and in the days to come. I not only learned a new sport but was also inspired by her tenacity, boldness, and curiosity to accomplish the impossibles. Simidele is very well-versed and poised for public speaking. Her compassion connected us, and I was comfortable sharing my ambitions in the next 100 days. I highly recommend spending one hour with Simidele!

プレゼン資料も良いされ確りとプログラムの構成が出来ておりあっと言うまの60分間でした。 Simideleさんの過去の経験から新しい体験への道のり、100日間でオリンピック出場を達成するまでの話は引き込まれてしまいました。 "やれば出来る" を実証した彼女の勇気と行動力にインスパイヤーされ、自身も100日間で達成することを本日決めました。 彼女から求められる質問は全てシンプルですが、考えさせられる内容でした。お勧めの体験です!

Simi is such an inspiration and all star storyteller. Although it isn't the point I left feeling like it was possible to me to become an excellent athlete too, or that at a minimum I had all tools and Simi provided the ways to use those tools strategically to achieve my dreams and goals. Highly highly recommend this experience, Athletes are the real life superheroes and Simi is certainly a heroine worth hearing from and supporting as she continues her Olympic journey.

Simi's session was so powerful and truly inspiring. It's incrediblde to hear her speak and share her journey. This experience is a great reminder of the true power of self - you can do anything (like reinvent yourself) as long as you make that mental shift to commit. Thank you, Simi!!! You are wonderful.

An incredible and inspiring team event. Simidele was kind and gracious every step of the way. We enjoyed some great visuals, had some laughs, and learned so much along the way. You leave with a sense of hope and possibility. What a wonderful gift to share with the team.
