Best-selling author, public speaking trainer and performer

Hi! I'm Shola - award-winning public speaker, best-selling author of the book 'How to be a DIVA at Public Speaking', and a professional singer.

I love teaching and training, both of groups and individuals and run Speak Up Like A DIVA which is a public speaking training company in the UK.

I'm super excited about being a Udemy instructor and being able to connect with students from such a diverse range of backgrounds. Please do reach out to me and say hi - I'd love to hear from you!

I'm a fully qualified teacher with a Post Graduate Certificate of Education from Oxford University and I have an undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University.

I enjoy tennis, rebounding and Thai food. I also love to travel - I lived in the USA for 7 years while I got my Masters degree, and after that I worked in consulting for a while before returning to the UK.

I'm now fully committed to speaking, teaching and performing; my dream activities!
