Type Of Speaker


Shola conducted a wonderful and engaging webinar session on communication in diverse teams for UNFPA! Her method of using the chatbox on Zoom to make sure everyone was engaged was super helpful for those who were not comfortable speaking up with the large group of people she was presenting to. Shola was very well-spoken and king and I would highly recommend her work to any organisation looking to improve communication skills between colleagues and teams.

A great company-wide virtual keynote on Empathy in the workplace. It was a fascinating subject, and I think it was the most engagement I have seen with a topic – clearly it gave people food for thought and resonated. Our HR team has already said that they would like to incorporate some of the tools you gave us into the updated manager training programme. Our diversity and inclusion sponsor on the board of directors even contacted me to say that he really enjoyed the talk and especially how engaging it was for the audience – which I consider a great success!

I had the pleasure of listening to Shola speak about presenting with confidence. Her personal journey to find her own confidence captures the audience. An inspiring and thought provoking presentation.

I attended Shola’s empathy webinar this morning and found her very articulate, with really good mastery of the subject matter. She broke down the session into simple bite-size sections, which made it easy to relate to. I especially loved the frameworks she shared – very useful takeaways. Thanks for sharing your time and paying it forward during this difficult period. Great use of an hour!

Shola’s session on Empathy was great and very concise. Even though we did it online, it was interactive and engaging. Concepts were simple to understand and there were key and practical take-away points from the session!

Shola is a big impact speaker and compelling storyteller. Be warned: her energy and positivity are highly contagious.
