Background:  okra eXpress was launched in 2007 by Bertha Oluwole, an astute and highly respected and creative, PR and investment practitioner. Bertha is a postgraduate executive MBA professional with excellent degree of people management, interpersonal and soft skills. Bertha's practical experience is underscored by her diverse qualifications in journalism - advanced media law, politics (major), with European studies, law, general and strategic business management and languages.

Bertha has in excess of twenty years of  innovative and credible experience in public relations, advocacy, legal and public affairs working for and with various organisations quite heartily in the UK and beyond. Bertha’s earlier career was in litigation in the UK, where she ran files in every area of the law, assessed the legal merits of the court cases and ensured that procedures were correctly followed before initiating legal proceedings. Bertha conducted advocacy in court, represented her employers in many courts across the UK, including Central London County Court, in Baker Street, swanky London and Dacorum County Court in Hertfordshire (up to two hours drive from Central London via the A40 motor way). Bertha responded to correspondence from UK regulatory bodies, opponent barristers to negotiate out of court settlements on behalf of her employers. Bertha also had direct functional links with officials at Her Majesty's Court Services, where she regularly dropped off correspondence to be acted upon before court hearings. Bertha carried out research  drafted workable policies in accordance with regulations,and defended in excess of 160 legal cases per month on behalf of her employers for a decade. Bertha was then head hunted by her ex-employer and offered a role as a consultant to lead a legal and public affairs project which involved translating the government’s regulations into workable practice with profound effect, bring legal duties in-house, draft doable strategies and ensure  proper implementation in line with highest professional standards.

: Photos above Bertha Oluwole, © Copyright, Bertha - okra eXpress Bertha in the 90s, talking at a high profile legal conference  on "The case for and against the UK joining the Euro-single currency". Over 2000 delegates attended the conference and it was great to be in the presence of vibrant people with diverse and considerable talents, Bertha reported. Excerpt from Bertha's talk was published in October 2000 via the Institute of Legal Executive Journal, Millennium version, a legal journal with global circulation. Sir John Harvey-Jones, MBE (formerly a British businessman and previous chairman of the Economist, and the then chairman of Imperial Chemical Industries, who has been best-known for his BBC television show, Troubleshooter, was also at the conference. Sir John-Harvey-Jones, eloquently and quite charmingly responded to the credible facts Bertha- okra eXpress  raised on the case for and against the UK joining the Euro Incidentally, In 1992, Sir John Harvey-Joneswon a BAFTA for his Troubleshooter BBC series. During the rest time slots at the conference, Sir John Harvey-Jones, and Bertha- okra eXpress entered into informal and fascinating discussion over camomile, about the Euro and the UK, the euro convergence criteria (Maastricht criteria), which are the criteria for European Union member states to enter the third stage of European Economic Monetary Union (EMU) and adopt the Euro as their currency. The four main criteria are based on Article 121(1) of the European Community Treaty. This Treaty is well worth a read if you feel able! Sir John Harvey- Jones' positive and modest approach along with his great degree of thoughtfulness will ever live in Bertha's memoryWhat a very remarkable gracious gentleman.  What a great cheer up! okra eXpress adds.


Over the years, and in her role as PR and investment practitioner, Bertha has developed a keen interest in international arbitration, intellectual property, copyright and competition law tentail and dreadful infringment of anti-trust law.
