I first met Onyi at a careers fair which was attended by a group of my year 12 and 13 students. Onyi sat on a panel of speakers and his capacity to coherently speak to student concerns motivated me to contact him with a view of commencing a working relationship for the benefit of our school’s underachieving students. In July 2013, Onyi came to the Petchey Academy (Hackney, London) to deliver a session with a group of year 9 and 10 boys. His presentation and oratory skills enabled him to immediately capture the attention of a group who often struggle to focus in some of their academic lessons. The content was dynamically delivered, target driven and relevant and these factors were verified by all attendees. The Q&A session which proceeded afterwards was informative and humorous with Onyi never deviating from the essence of maximising educational potential. I have no hesitation in recommending Onyi to educational and social establishments and I look forward to working with him again.
We at Brunel University are very grateful to Onyi for traveling a long way to deliver his keynote presentation titled: Your Time Is Now: How to become a student of distinction™. His selfless determination shined through and he delivered a number of key points during his presentation. After the presentation, Onyi interacted with our students and I could see it made them more focused to achieve their goals by utilising the coaching strategies he gave. Onyi's workshop culminated on why we should become students and entrepreneurs of distinction.
Onyi delivered a Life coaching workshop to students at the London South Bank University Students' Union. The session was very informative and extremely inspiring. I have received positive feedback from all students who attended his dynamic Life coaching workshop. I would definitely recommend Onyi's service to other universities in the United Kingdom as I believe the coaching and teaching from his workshops will benefit students for their time at university and after they have graduated.
What we at Bang Edutainment found most rewarding was that Onyi, had a connection with our young people but he still kept the session professional. Onyi managed to keep the attention of our young people, which is quite difficult considering the issues many of them face. The examples Onyi used, as a young man who also faced what many young people are facing, combined with his coaching and his passion provided a dynamic session. This ultimately ended with empowering our young people, in having written goals to achieve.
Onyi has run a workshop for our young people for the past three years; this is for our Year 10 study skills day. His sessions are of a high standard, providing thought provoking challenge and motivation to students from different multicultural backgrounds. Onyi has also delivered keynote speeches for our assemblies, and I have received nothing but positive feedback from the staff and students. Onyi is a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending him to other schools, and organisations for similar work.
I found the services of B1 Coaching at the YOUR TIME IS NOW monthly Life Coaching workshop both exciting and liberating. What I found the most rewarding was the exercise where Onyi and I broke down my goals and he then formulated strategies so that I could use the strategies to achieve all my written goals.
Onyi gave a presentation at HMYOI Aylesbury to 40 serving young offenders. He automatically got their attention by speaking to them about the power of choice. Onyi then talked about himself, he described how he had a troubled background. The results of this troubled background almost ended up with him being nearly shot dead. The presentation was very dynamic and proved to be thought provoking. Onyi’s delivery style was very passionate and confident, a testament to the maturation process which he spoke of during the presentation. He explained and outlined clear action points, which if effectively applied can lead to a positive and productive life. He also expanded on the power of decision making and how choices map a person's life. In motivating individuals at the presentation,Onyi made no excuses for complacency and challenged everyone in the room including myself, to live a practical life with effective application of the taught principles. He expressed the importance of being tenacious, if individuals want to achieve their goals and vision. Onyi answered a lot of challenging questions but remained calm and positive throughout the discussion. He was an inspiration and he also gave handouts, which gave a starting point on how to write down goals and how to achieve their written goals.
The YOUR TIME IS NOW monthly Life Coaching workshop was really good. Realising (finally) that I am not a procrastinator, but that I have been hindering myself by thinking I am, totally changed my mind-set. I also found it rewarding to be able to hear the different stages involved in setting goals, and seeing where the other attendees were at in terms of their achievements.
I had a vision for an events management project that I wanted to undertake, but procrastination and fear of the unknown almost killed my dream. I will never forget the day I met with Onyi for a coaching session. I was sure that when I met him, he would be overwhelmed by my dreams but he was very calm and professional with his approach. Onyi gave me strategies and with the coaching tools received I re-wrote my big goals and turned them into practical daily goals that could be achieved.
