“I’ve found the School of Eloquence as the go-to institution for the learning and mastery of the art of public speaking, especially for highly placed Nigerians in business or politics. I am also the more impressed that its dean, Ubong Essien, brings global best practices to bear having recently become Nigeria’s first Certified Speaking Professional. I highly recommend it.”

Prof. Pat Utomi

Prior to the course, I always had butterflies whenever I had to make a presentation but the training has given me confidence and also reminded me that there are no born speakers. The ability to speak eloquently is acquired. I recommend the course as part of the curriculum for induction programs in various organizations.”
