Ayo Awotona

Ayo Awotona. 

A woman on a mission to support girls and young women across the globe to be more confident, have a better quality of life and find their self worth.



In a nutshell, Ayo Awotona is a public speaker, presenter and coach with a powerful message. A young charismatic and energetic woman who is known for her high energy and down to earth personality.

Growing up, Ayo struggled with low self esteem and a lack of motivation until she discovered the key to being confident was believing in her own ability! Now, she's on a mission to share how she successfully overcame many of her challenges in order for females to realise how phenomenal they really are.

Focusing primarily on growth mindset and confidence building, Ayo has toured the UK and spoken to over 7,100 students (to date) delivering high impact workshops and assemblies that increase confidence, aspirations and attitude towards education.

She has also spoken at a number of events where her work has been described as inspirational and life-changing.


Did you know that 75% of girls with low self-esteem engage in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating?


"It's a huge problem - 80% of girls are so concerned about their looks that they're holding back from important life activities. They might be reluctant to try out for a team, fear giving their opinion, and 70% even feel too embarrassed to go to the doctor, so are putting their health at risk"

In every engagement, workshop, one-to-one coaching session, or motivational event, we commit to planting the necessary seeds to meet the unique needs of all of our clients.

Both standard and bespoke bundles are accessible to cater to varying age groups through varying strategies.



The mission is to help girls and young women develop the strategy, motivation and mindset required to succeed in their educational and personal lives. Ayo's talks/assemblies set the tone for growth mindset, and are delivered with high energy and a powerful message that participants can truly gain value from.



Our interactive workshops get participants fully involved in the learning process. There are group discussions, activities and exercises, as well as opportunities to practice applying the concepts that are presented. They consist of smaller groups where the concentration will be custom fitted to your prerequisites.



Coaching/mentoring is always tailored to the needs of the participants. Ayo's aim is always to improve the performance and focuses on the ‘here and now’ rather than on the distant past or future. Fundamentally, the goal is helping individuals develop relevant skills and abilities.



Ayo's confidence and charisma makes her an excellent host. One of Ayo's strenghts is gauging a crowd and captivating them accordingly.



Custom made services are available on request.

Ayo has an enthralling way of inviting young people to explore what it looks like for them to be committed to bringing out their best and she manages to do this in such an effortless manner. Her speaking ability allows students to engage, reflect and think big. She also has an ability to enable her audiences to feel comfortable with their own vulnerability and insecurities as she is excellent at creating a safe space when addressing young people.
