His lively session was tremendously well-received by our audience of New York nonprofits and social enterprises; participants responded that they discovered a newfound confidence and a better grasp of how to steer their own personal story into a compelling, forward-looking tale that truly connects with potential funders, employers, and clients. Gbenga did an outstanding job of inspiring a room full of people to present themselves and their organizations to the world with greater confidence and leadership."
