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 - 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 and she 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.
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.
