Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON - May 19, 2016 - Miss Anne-Marie Imafidon, Founder of The Stemette organisation and eldest child of Britain’s Brainiest family, yesterday lit up a crowd of business executives during this year’s world tour hosted by Salesforce. (#SalesforceTour). Her inspirational speech to a standing room only crowd in London included references to some of the girls that she has mentored who are now leading entrepreneurs in providing STEM-related products and services. Other presenters included Ms Polly Sumner, the CAO of Salesforce, and Dr Andy Palmer, President and CEO of Aston Martin, who was represented by Simon Sproule, Chief Marketing Officer/Vice President.
Later, Anne-Marie’s father, Professor Chris Imafidon, a renowned adviser to governments, presidents, and royalty, who was in the audience, dismissed the outdated view that understanding or learning STEM, or STEAM, or any subjects or concepts were gender or class specific. “Any person, male or female, can achieve any height and enjoy any subject if given the right tools, technology and techniques with appropriate mentorship. Every child is a genius.” He praised the Salesforce corporation for supporting educational initiatives. Professor Imafidon who has lectured at Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge, disclosed this to Sky Television in London shortly after the world tour event. He discussed the practical steps which mothers, fathers and schools must take to reverse the sad trend.
Anne-Marie Imafidon, who is an alumnus of the world renowned ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk programme, and the youngest ever Master’s degree graduate of Oxford, lamented the falling number of ladies who pursue a career in STEM. Ms Imafidon outlined how her multi-award winning organisation STEMettes is inspiring the next generation of women into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Later, in response to questions, Anne-Marie praised organisations such as ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk for their dedication to exposing primary-school-age pupils to challenging concepts in mathematics. This is irrespective of their gender or social class.
Anne-Marie Imafidon is regarded as the smartest in Britain, as all her siblings are child prodigies. In 2010, the Imafidons were the 3rd most famous family in the UK. The most famous was the royal family, and the 2nd was the Beckhams.
Most of the audience felt that her phenomenal speech was one of a kind.
It should be recalled that HRH Princess Anne (the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth of Britain and the commonwealth) joined Miss Anne-Marie Imafidon to co-launch for Outbox, a science-based entrepreneurial scheme for girls at Salesforce’s head office in London.
