Noky Simbani earned a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from one of the leading institutions in Great Britain. Having worked as an engineer, she is now a qualified chartered banker and currently works on marketing-leading projects to support business growth.
As someone who works in male-dominated fields, Simbani is passionate about empowering women to achieve their full potential in their careers.

She also hosts Boss Brunches where she shares practical advice for celebrating successes with conviction.
Outside of her regular work, she is a diversity and inclusion ambassador and a careers ambassador, sharing her career journey with young people across the country to help develop their professional skills. She is also a BAME ambassador for SmartWorks, a charity that provides personal styling, clothing, and coaching for unemployed women.
