"We booked Titilayo to speak to our students and alumni because we wanted a young, dynamic speaker who could present a fresh perspective on career goal setting and job searching to our students and recent grads. I really liked Titilayo’s message about taking responsibility for defining success on your own terms and creating your own opportunities. Titilayo packaged and presented some important messages together in a way that really resonated with our attendees. Plus her own story is inspiring, and gives the audience a sense of how this could really work in their own lives. Before, during, and after the event, every aspect of our interaction with Titilayo was easy, enjoyable, and professional.”

–J. Alison Morris, J.D., Alumni Relations Officer at Mitchell Hamline School of Law
