Marlies AllanMarlies Allan, President and Chair of the Board 

Nigeria

Marlies is a talented and dedicated lawyer, specialising in intellectual property law. A managing partner of the law offices Allan & Ogunkeye, Marlies mainly divides her time between Lagos, Nigeria (where her offices are based) and London, UK. Along with her busy law practice, Marlies has held several prominent voluntary and charitable positions including the presidency of the International Women’s Society, and participating in the International Federation of Women Lawyers. 

Marlies joined OB-PS in January 2013 and has since been an active supporter of the Society. She became a Board Member in 2014, and is also a Global Supporter. Marlies’ vision for the next five years is for OB-PS to become a little more modern and a little more business-minded in its approach to fundraising. She believes that it is also vital to raise the visibility and to make known the impact of WAGGGS at global, regional, and national levels. Most importantly, Marlies will continue to raise funds for WAGGGS and build and improve on the solid foundation already in place. She hopes this will inspire financial support from individuals from all over the world, adding more countries to those that already support OB-PS.
