What people are saying when they listen or learn from Aderinsola

“Derin helped me find direction in less than one hour through one of her live clarity sessions/webinars for a multipotentialite. I have always been on a journey to finding purpose and always asked myself “why” do I do all that I find myself doing? Why do I suddenly get tired and want more from it all? Derin helped me find a better understanding and helped me align my purpose to who I am and what I do.”

Abeebat, CEO of Habeebat Cakes and Confectionaries 

“Mrs Adio-Adepoju is one of the best teachers I have ever encountered. She is blessed with the ability to teach and make the hardest things become as simple as ABC.”

“I wondered how people got noticed and got people to reach out to them with global opportunities. What I did not know was that they were strategically positioned for it. We women are especially guilty of being so valuable yet hiding ourselves. I knew I needed help. I first joined one of Derin’s webinars for women who had abandoned their global ambitions. At the end of that webinar, I decided, NO MORE. My mindset shifted in 4.5 hours. I called Derin and got on her 12-week program. 4 weeks in, I was no longer wondering, I couldn’t believe the magic that was happening. I was getting noticed by the movers and shakers in the energy industry. I love the way she holds my hand till I deliver. Derin doesn’t allow you fail, she drags you to the global stage.”

Augustaheavens Ikevuje, Oil & Gas Business Expert

Derin is who I refer to as “The Clarity King”. Her ability to give clarity to high-impact projects and teach novices how to win global opportunities is unprecedented across Africa. I just feel bad I did not find Derin before now,

“Coach, I did not even tell you, you know after I applied for the UPG sustainability program and won a slot as one of the 500 from 120 countries, I redid my profile like you advised and update it on LinkedIn. You remember you vetted it on Feb 20 and said I was good to go. Between that time and now, 3 HR people reached out to me to interview me for a role. I was shocked. Coach, it even took  several days to reply to one and I was now dictating to her that if it is not a specific role she should not bother o. That I will not even show up for the interview” My husband was telling me that Elizabeth, you are now hot cake o, I said yes now, my money for this coaching program is working. This is someone that was telling me how can I pay such amount for online program. The moment I  won the first opportunity early Feb,  I mean the UPG suitability program I applied for, he had to admit I made a good decision to purchase the program. So when I started attracting jobs, he was just saying, this program is good o. I told him, before nko”
