Fola Alabi led our business transformation initiatives and she was a keynote speaker at one of our town halls. She was electrifying and personable. She connected with the audience, bringing humour and a system thinking approach to the subject matter. Fola explained how her personal experiences built her tenacity and determination to get result, and fuels her passion to implement lasting change that brings value to organizations and their customers, while also empowering their employees. I recommend her services to any organization or individuals looking for a partner to collaborate with on achieving important business or personal goals. We got value for our investment; the services were definitely worth it!

When you talk about a people advocate, a change leader and a project management professional you need to meet Fola.  I was opportune to listen to Fola speak on the subject of driving strategy with effective portfolio and project management. She delivered eloquently on the inextricable confluence of change, technology and project management.  She was so personable and connected excellently with the audience.  It was engaging and interactive. I highly recommend Fola Alabi.

I have had the privilege to observe Fola Alabi speak with and present to senior leaders in my organization. I must say that we were completely impressed by Fola's wealth of knowledge of the subject matter and more importantly, we were mesmerized by her ability to relay her message in a very thought-provoking and practical way. Fola's art of story telling is simply, exceptional!
