My background and experience
I’m an international award-winning communications trainer. I’m also a speaker, coach, advisor and multi-award-winning blogger. I wrote the Amazon bestselling business communications blueprint Influence and Thrive, which is available across six continents in many outlets/retailers/libraries, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, and the book website.
Specialising in effective communication, I help you—professionals, entrepreneurs, and business leaders—to improve your communication skills so you amplify your influence and thrive in your fields. I’ve been blogging about business communication and management issues for over a decade. Therefore, I bring along my blogging experience, my coaching techniques, and my training expertise to deliver business communication training and advisory services for individuals and corporate clients. My esteemed clients include Nestlé Nigeria, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (Lagos Chapter), the Nigeria Stock Exchange, and Ischus.
I hold two degrees from U.K universities. And in May 2020, my alma mater, the London School of Economics & Political Science did a very cool thing: They named me ‘Alum of the Month’ for my profile and impact. Then in 2021, the University of Leicester featured my book and highlighted my work in their alumni #CitizensOfChange initiative.
As the founder and chief communications trainer of Rethinking Business Communications Limited, I offer onsite and online training and advisory services in nonverbal communication, public speaking, business writing, and interpersonal communication. I work with professionals, executives, entrepreneurs, and leaders to amplify their influence and results.
For my programmes, I apply my significant experience facilitating lectures and executive seminars at the double-accredited, globally ranked Lagos Business School (ranked #1 in Africa in 2022 and #41 globally by the Financial Times of London executive education ranking). My clients include the Nigeria Stock Exchange, Nestlé Nigeria, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (Lagos Chapter), and Ischus Consulting.
As you know, I’m the writer/editor of this multi-award-winning blog, where I provide deep insights and practical techniques for effective communication. My recommendations will help you thrive in your career or business. In addition to other awards it’s earned, this blog is the only website from Africa to feature among the top 40 on Feedspot’s authoritative rank of Top Communication Blogs, Websites, & Influencers.
I’m grateful that my expertise is globally recognised. In 2023, the prestigious International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) nominated and selected me as the Top Communications Trainer of the Year 2023 for my impact and longevity in the field. Moreover, Global Gurus, the renowned research organisation, ranked me as the #11 communication professional in the world. I was the only African to appear in the communication category and appeared alongside communication greats like Nancy Duarte, Dorie Clark, and Matt Abrahams.
I love collaborations! I joined the team of expert coaches, speakers and trainers at Ubiquity Executive Coaches, where I’m positioned to use my experience and passion for effective communication to serve international clients across the globe. I’m also honoured to be represented by AAE and A-Speakers speakers bureaus where I look forward to delivering keynotes on effective business communication, so book me!
What I love to do in my spare time
I’m a simple lady at heart. Therefore, when I’m not obsessing about effective communication, I unwind by watching television. I’m a huge fan of detective programmes and fancy myself a bit of an expert in identifying the culprits. I also enjoy watching thrillers, (meaningful) action flicks, and dramas.
I have a sweet tooth and love wine gums (for my US connections, the closest equivalent is gummy bears), chocolate, and ice cream. My late dad used to call me the ‘cheese monster’ when I was younger because of my love for cheese – and that love hasn’t diminished in adulthood. Just so you know how to get in my good graces.
