Speaker / Trainer / Business Consultant / Coach

Leadership begins with the person, before it is extended to, and executed in a position. Yemi Akinsiwaju is evidence of this. I have been privileged to serve, several years, with Yemi as a Trustee of the International Third World Leadership Association (under the Chairmanship of the late Dr. Myles Munroe).

During this time, I have heard Yemi share sage insights on the impact that personal mastery and leadership development confer upon the execution and efficacy of the leadership position. What I have found most poignant about what he shares, is that he is a testament of it. He doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk.

As a servant leader, Yemi has always risen to the occasion or task, not only in thought and ideas, but also in deed and results. If you want to see dynamic and effective change in your leadership, and its results, I highly recommend you seek Yemi Akinsiwaju.

I have known and worked with Yemi Akinsiwaju for almost a decade and being under various trainings that he has delivered. I find his training method to be clear, easy to follow and provide the desired results.

Furthermore, his result driven leadership skills does inspire training delegates towards improving their performance and enhancing any project they are involved in.

Yemi’s communication skills during training is very engaging. Both his online and in-person training encourages delegates to ask the right questions; and empowers them to apply the knowledge from the training into their daily lives and work.

Moreover, Yemi has a very cheerful personality that makes it easy for anyone to get on with him.  He is a good team player, makes insightful contributions to senior management meetings and improves staff morale in any organisation that he works with.

I have been a delegate in several trainings he has conducted both online and offline, in local citywide and international conferences. I highly recommend any training that he provides.

Yemi is a great speaker and trainer. I met him at T. Harv Eker’s Train the Trainer event where he was the facilitator for one of the developmental exercises.

His charisma, high energy, constant care and support to all participants and his inspirational ideas motivated me and many other participants to go outside our comfort zones to achieve great personal breakthroughs.

I was very inspired by Yemi and I highly recommend him as a trainer and speaker.

Yemi is a genuine inspirational and avid speaker. He grips his audiences’ attention and he connects with them deeply. Attending the ‘Effective Living Seminars’ was the best decision I made in pursuing some of my goals in life. 

Since then I have been able to accomplish things in my life that I did not have the confidence to achieve before.

Respect Yemi!  Thanks for being such a powerful, effective instrument of inspiration and motivation to me.

Not only is Yemi a true leader himself but he does indeed believe in the true leadership essence of others. Selflessly he has poured himself out into the lives others to empower them to reach their next level of success in life.

It has been his objective to help others discover and produce their leadership abilities and offer practical strategies to apply to a successful and fulfilling end.

I myself have had the privilege and pleasure of gleaning from Yemi personally and from his teachings and trainings on leadership. I have been inspired to be more confident in my leadership potential.

If you are seeking out a meaningful and impactful leadership training program, I highly support and recommend Yemi Akinsiwaju. Follow his lead and you will see a change once you do your part and put in the work.

Yemi inspired and empowered the young people, giving them all the confidence to stand up and talk passionately about things that mattered to them.

The workshop enabled them all to make progresses, regardless of their starting point and his words were echoed by the young people throughout the rest of the programme, which accumulated in them all standing up and pitching, confidently and coherently, to a team of ‘Dragons’.

Myself and the young people on the programme want to thank Yemi for his time, and I very much hope to work with him again in the future.
