Our mission is to inspire and guide you towards your greatest potential!

Esther Akpomukai is the founder of Light Up Your Talent and works as an executive coach, trainer, management consultant and speaker in the area of talent development & optimisation and personal leadership.

I work with the talent-focused and solution-based approach in a multi-layered way. This means that I will support the individual in their personal growth process and will also look at what is happening at a team level. Creating a metaphorical bridge between the two worlds so they can experience value from each other is where I like to contribute. Together with the client (i.e. Human Resources, managers and employees), we will design the programme that will help the team go through the journey they wish to experience (i.e. effective and pleasant cooperation, mutual appreciation, increased energy, higher performance & engagement levels in the team.
