I just wanted to take the time to write back to say thank you for this session. Yemi is an incredible speaker and the session far exceeded my expectations! I’ve been involved in other mentoring programs before and they didn’t have something quite like this / to this quality before.– Transgrid
Yemi was very personable, sharing from her own experience built immediate rapport. Personally I was very impressed that Yemi was in the room for 2hrs prior to her session. This became evident in her presentation when she referred back to topics that previous speakers had discussed, making her key points more relevant to the audience.– Hammond Care
Yemi facilitated an extremely complex and challenging symposium over 2 days of multiple sessions with several stakeholders to help us achieve concrete outcomes and action plans that we wanted. It was an immense task and Yemi was beyond excellent in keeping people engaged, active and in good humour to work collaboratively and effectively– University Technology Sydney
