Speaker's Corner

Click here to register for the New Speakers' Corner , starting October 2009. 


It took an inspirational speaker armed with a few words; “YES, WE CAN” and “CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN” to turn a nation around. Thus, with words, Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States of America and inspired; not only his nation, but the global community.

Like America, we are in need for change; and there is a very high demand for hope in times of such despondency and despair. There is an urgent need for people to speak words of HOPE.

Thus, SPEAKERS’ CORNER was birthed in August 2005.

SPEAKERS’ CORNER is an incredible platform established to empower, motivate, network and mentor upcoming speakers to realise their dreams of becoming the world’s most sought after speakers who will influence their nation positively. This is the platform for aspiring and established motivational/inspirational speakers to network and learn from one another as well as a means of discovering many of the hidden motivational speaking gifts in them.

The brainchild of Nigeria’s most sought after speaker, Fela Durotoye; SPEAKERS’ CORNER has been hailed as a “THE” platform for developing the skills for motivation and inspiration which are obviously critical at this juncture of our national development.

With the ever increasing numbers of participants who come in from as far away as Abuja, Port Harcourt and Benin, SPEAKERS’ CORNER has been hailed as the platform for building the leaders of the future.

The facilitators have included Niyi Adesanya (CEO, 5th Gear Consulting), Lanre Kupoluyi (DFID Consultant to the Ministry of Education, Federal Republic of Nigeria), (Richie Dayo Johnson - UK based Internationally Renowned Toastmaster), Prof. Pat Utomi (Director, Lagos Business School), Otunba Gadaffi (CEO, DMT Toilets Ltd.), Mr. Folusho Phillips (Executive Chairman, Phillips Consulting), Tara Fela-Durotoye (CEO, House of Tara), Rev. Sam Adeyemi (Senior Pastor, Daystar) and the host, Fela Durotoye.

These individuals have endorsed SPEAKERS’ CORNER as an incredible platform to mentor, guide and give direction to many Nigerians.
