Coined the “Pint-Sized Powerhouse” for her magnetic energy, unrelenting tenacity, and spellbinding storytelling abilities, Seneca Dunmore is an international speaker, speaker coach, and tireless humanitarian.
Seneca has a very unique career experience in that she has leveraged her communication and negotiation skills to add to the bottom line of both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. Before starting her entrepreneurial journey in 2014, Seneca worked in business development and consulting for a multi-billion-dollar human capital consulting firm in the nation’s capital negotiating multi-million-dollar technology contracts for the oil and gas industry.
Seneca walked away from her corporate job in October of 2014, started her Motivational Speaking Business in May of 2015, and by July of 2016, she was speaking on international stages. She now coaches new and aspiring speakers, high-impact professionals, as well as business owners and entrepreneurs how to leverage speaking as a primary vehicle to land 4, 5, and 6-figure contracts for their business. Along with coaching Seneca also partners with industry leaders to teach undercapitalized business owners and entrepreneurs how to access the capital they need to grow, scale, and sustain their business. She is addressing the fiscal deficit in our community by teaching enterprising business owners and entrepreneurs how to secure more capital, contracts, customers, and connections for their businesses by building pathways to funding.
While working with a community-based non-profit, Seneca developed programs and curriculums that garnered millions of dollars in funding to support the acclimation of digitally illiterate and re-entry individuals back into society.
Outside of business, Seneca is a tireless humanitarian. She has served on medical and teaching missions in underdeveloped countries like Kenya, Angola, and South Africa to provide free healthcare services to different tribes in the area. In 2019 and 2020 Ms. Dunmore worked on her doctoral research at the University of Ghana at their institute of African Studies. Her doctoral research focuses on the school-to-prison pipeline, mass incarceration, and how that equates to modern-day slavery.
Ms. Dunmore has traveled to more than 45 countries and has been featured in national and international media outlets like the New York Times, Essence Magazine, Ebony, Black Enterprise, and Afrochella in Ghana. Her portfolio also includes features with FOX News, KPRC, KHOU, 97.9, 93.7, and many more. Seneca has a Bachelors's in Biology, a Master’s in Management Information Systems, and is currently completing her doctorate in Education Administration.
