Tayo Rockson is an engaging and dynamic speaker and we felt so lucky to have him join us for our National Summit. Tayo’s knowledge on harnessing data revolution for sustainable change resonated with our members and allowed them to embrace the sustainable development goals. He shared some key strategies that allowed our members to embrace our core values and by sharing that with their chapters at home, effectively engage and motivate others. I would highly recommend him to any organization!

It was an inspiring experience to participate in an informal lunch discussion with Tayo, who so easily ties together the issues of prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination bridging cultural differences with innovative ideas of communication. Leaving the room assured by Tayo that there’s no excuses not to take action, and every single individual has the power to create change and make a difference.
