Rave Reviews

Here are what clients say about Mister Motivator:

Mr. Essien leaves you better than he meets you – re-fired and recharged for greater performance. My entire team greatly benefited from this unique speaker with the winning touch. – Larry Izamoje, Chairman, Sports Radio 88.9 Brila FM


Ubong Essien is driven from within with such passion that he makes people believe they can walk on water…The truth is they can if they get motivated right. Ubong does that quite well. – Pat Utomi, Director, Lagos Business School.


Every year I invite Ubong to no less than 10 events to address my clients for one major reason – He challenges them to perform. He lays down the gauntlet with his highly graphical illustrations and provocative approach. When he is done, they take up the gauntlet. Ubong, your eagle and lion metaphors are a Master Class – they change lives.” – Hon. Chris Asoluka, Managing Consultant / CEO, FM & T Consulting


Ubong is a born motivator. When he speaks, the audience is silent. They are forced to digest the hard-hitting home truths which Mr. Essien laces his talks with. That we have repeatedly invited him to our events and conferences since 2003 is testament to the kind of impact he makes on his audiences.” – Dr. Sunny Obazu-Ojeagbase, Publisher, Success Digest


“When we needed a mass re-orientation of our people at the FERMA Headquarters, it was Ubong through his series of insightful and motivational lectures that helped us create this change. I can never forget. It was real, substantive transformation in the behaviour and attitudes of our people. Mission accomplished.” – Olubunmi Peters, Past CEO, Federal Roads Maintenance Agency

“Ubong is a thoroughbred and impactful motivational speaker. He has handled several life-changing sessions at our bank.” – Aik Alenkhe, HR Manager, Fidelity Bank Plc


“Dear Mr. Ubong, words are grossly inadequate for me to really describe how I feel. However, the session with you is an eye-opener. I feel like flogging myself for being in the cooler all this while. Henceforth, I have made a declaration and taken a stand to invest more in myself than anything else. Thank you very much for coming.”– Nwosu I. Bright, Retail Development Manager, Guinness Plc


“If you are looking for a speaker that can understand the dimensions of your organization’s situation and address them with great effect, then Ubong Essien is your man. He speaks to the issue and inspires the people at the same time to act immediately. I can never forget how he stunned us into action at our management retreat of 2007. We’ve since worked with him company-wide. He is provocative.” – Austin Onono, Divisional CEO, John Holt Engineering
