Coach, Facilitator
London, United Kingdom
I met Obi in the Finance Transformation Summit in London. She was an excellent coach in our workshop session on collaborative leadership in times of change. The way she coached us to approach certain work problems and the insights it revealed – that was rather unexpected and amazing! If you have a chance to work with her, I would strongly recommend you take it”

I hired Obi to facilitate team-building for my newly expanded team. The session was engaging, enlightening and well worth the time spent out of the office. Obi was engaging and dynamic with a great conversational style of facilitating which doesn’t make participants feel like they’re being coached or trained.”
