Esther Akpomukai is the founder of Light Up Your Talent and works as an executive coach, trainer, management consultant and speaker.
Light Up Your Talent focuses on talent development, team development and leadership. How do you get the best out of yourself and your team? Our passion is to guide people in managing their talent so they can achieve their goals. We work in an integrated manner, meaning that in addition to supporting the individual in their process, we also look at what is happening at a team level. Creating a metaphorical bridge between the two worlds so that they can be of value to each other, is where we like to add value.
Together with the client (i.e. HR, managers and employees), we will design the programme that will help the team go through the journey they wish to experience (i.e. effective cooperation, great communication, mutual appreciation, increased energy, higher performance and engagement levels in the team.
