The Leadership bootcamp was indeed a nutrient that was required to rectify a deficiency, although the testimony about my wife will not be completed without acknowledging some inputs from the Speaker Academy

Here are some of the turnovers we got from the event:

1. Improved human relationship.
2. Ability to deal with people of different personality types.
3. Discovery of untapped/hidden potential.
4. My wife’s new passion to pursue her purpose and dreams.
5. An unusual ability to be goals oriented.
6. Encourage our children to be the best they can be.
7. Improved self-esteem.
8. My wife has developed a leadership mentality.
9. Ability to acquire her dream clientele for her business.
10. I have a better wife😀

Here is a practical example to buttress what I have listed above;

Our church started a nursery and primary school in Ibadan last year September and my wife was appointed as the administrator of the school. She was able to administer the school in such a way that the school has become the envy of other schools in the city through the innovative leadership skills she has acquired.

I will like to say a big thank you to the Niyi Adesanya brand for bringing out our hidden potentials.

Niyi Adesanya On ``The Speaker``

Alongside the fear of death, public speaking ranks amongst the top 10 greatest fears many people have. People would rather ‘die’ than speak before a crowd. In our ever-changing world where all you do revolves around how you communicate your thoughts and ideas to others, public speaking is inevitable.

“The Speaker” is that step by step guide that addresses public speaking as well as the many facets of corporate presentation.

One of the aims of this book is to play the “economic” role of influencing people to optimise and put commercial value on their speaking talent.

This book will in many ways help you recognise your presentation challenges and inspire you to create your own ‘WOW’ presentation.
